Kedai Makan Ah Tee, Labis, Malaysia

After the bak kut teh, it was time for a second breakfast. This place specializes in kway chap and I was told Malaysian kway chap is quite different from the Singaporean version. Sure, there's still a heap of braised innards and porcine bits but the main difference is the gravy which comes with the dishes. The gravy here is thick and slightly herby compared to the thinner sauce versions in Singapore.

Thinly sliced pork belly.

A variety of braised bean curds.

Braised pig intestines.

Pig ears and fallopian tubes.

There was also an option to have the noodles dry instead of in a soup. Since we don't get this in Singapore, I gave the dry version a shot. The noodle here is more like a flat rice noodle instead of large rice sheets. Still, the dry version with the chilies and fried shallots was quite a refreshing change.
