Kway Chap From $3, Served By 89-Year-Old Hawker Who Opens Stall At 6am

What a poster woman for active ageing.

Kway Chap From $3, Served By 89-Year-Old Hawker Who Opens Stall At 6am

With food prices rising each year, it’s rare to find a hearty, filling hawker meal for $3. Yet, 56-year-old stall Covent Garden Kway Chap is still offering its satisfying bowls accompanied by braised ingredients from a reasonable $3. And the food continues to be dished out by it’s 89-year-old founder, Chua Meow Ching. During 8days.sg's recent weekday breakfast visit, we observed how efficient the petite lady was: focused and rather sprightly as she took orders in Teochew, as well as sliced up and plated the gravy-soaked offal.
