Kway Chap stall in the Hougang Ave. 7 wet market

Hi, the wet market I am referring to is block 11. I used to frequent this stall. Run by 3 old ladies and an old man. I do not know if they are still in business elsewhere since the market has been torn down. If you know where this stall is located now, appreciate if you can let me know. Same for the other stalls, like the one selling chicken rice facing the row of shops, the fried carrot cake store (1 man show) next to the chicken store, and the noodle stall next to the carrot cake store.

Then there is also this economy rice stall at the coffee shop opposite the market that sells cheap and good food. Usually can see long queue. This coffee shop also has a store that sells wanton mee and mutton soup.

Thanks.

Wow childhood memories of the Blk 11 market. My grandparents used to run the pig organ soup stall. Located near the corner carrot cake lady. Not sure if itís the one youíre referring to.

Thanks for bringing up this thread. I chanced upon this place once but didn't take notice the address, so for years I didn't know how to search.

I recall the kway chap here being well braised and things were super cheap back then. They also sold pig tongue which is quite rare. I'm also interested to know if they had set up shop elsewhere if anyone knows.
