    This stall the soup is spicy with white pepper its like mom's cook pig intestine soup, very shiok

    Please note that Thailand kwaychap uses crispy pork instead of our braised pork they also don't serve with taupok. Don't need to compare which is better lets just say both share the same name but are different food altogether.

    Froggy no eat blood ror?
    By the way, there are 3 types of kuay chap in Thailand;
    Type 1 : กวยจั๊บน้ำใส kuay chap nam sai (what froggy is eating) flat white noodles most common and used the same type of soup as tom luad moo

    Type 2 : กวยจั๊บน้ำข้น also flat white noodles kuay chap nam kon (this is closest to the SG version as the soup used is "palo" which means braised or "lor")
    Type 3 : ก๋วยจั๊บญวน kuay chap yuan (uses Ubon noodle aka vietnam noodle long and thick noodle). The soup is clear but more starchy than 1.). No related to 1. And 2. Its popular in Ubon part of Issan. If you see a shop selling kuay chap yuan, most likely owner is from Ubon or nearby provinces.
    Paiseh, don't know how to attach files. No touch computer for over 3 years laew. Took me an hour to post this. Just google the thai text to see the different typw of "kuay chap" in Thailand.

    You know these flat kwaychap when boiled curl up when older Singaporeans came and eat they told me in the past as in like the 50's and 60's the kwaychap in Singapore is also like this curled up so they reckon this to be very 古早 style.

    If your photo is from the internet you can use the above picture icon beside teh smiley face to link the photo

    If your photo is from your computer or mobile phone you can use the icon below right "Upload a File" and upload your photo then it will prompt you to attach either a thumbnail or full image, choose the full image.

    How much is this plate of khao man gai? So many chicken meat until cannot see the rice. Guess must be piset piset, at least 100 baht.
    Also, unusual to see red chilli sauce.
