Blanco Court Kueh Chap @ Holland Drive Food Centre - A Generous and Comforting Plate of Kway Chap

During my visit to Cheng Heng Kway Chap And Braised Duck Rice at Holland Drive Food Centre, I noticed another kway chap stall, Blanco Court Kueh Chap located just 2 stalls away which is run by an old couple. My curiosity brings me back to the food centre the following week to find out which is better.

First we tried the Kway. Compared to their neighbour, the kway is more silky and thinner in texture. Unfortunately I preferred the thicker rice sheet from Cheng Heng which comes with a bite and is able to soak up the gravy more.

The pale colour is already a tell tale sign that the braising sauce is lighter in taste. True enough the braised ingredients are not as tasty as Cheng Heng, lacking the rich flavour of the braising sauce.

While the braising sauce may be lighter, I did not taste any gaminess in the innards. The serving for 2 pax is $10. The portion is also more generous and I like how the stall auntie chopped them up into big chunky piece. This is the two noticeable advantage of Blanco Court Kueh Chap over Cheng Heng.

I am not sure whether the stall is related to the popular Blanco Court Kway Chap stall at Old Airport Road. My suspicious is there are not. The stall probably used to operate from the defunct Blanco Court food centre and borrow the name when it moved to its current location. If you have any information about the stall, do feel free to let me know.

  1. I did my research! I think ST went around interviewing all the stalls that are named "Blanco Court." The one at Old Airport Road is the authentic one. And then there is one at Serangoon Gardens called "blanco court Garden Street Kway Chap." There is some connection with Blanco Court but I forgot what. And lastly, it's this Holland V store. ST implied that it has no connections with Blanco Court at all. So I'm not putting it on my list. Anyway, from your review, it seems like it's so-so only.
