Kwan Inn is an unique setup. It occupies four hawker stalls in the coffee shop. The first stall sells Nasi Lemak, Nasi Brani and dumpling noodle. The second stall sells Laksa and Zi Char. The third deals with finger food such as Popiah, buns and egg tarts. The last stall sells economical rice. Thus, you can find a variety of vegetarian food to satisfy all taste buds.
The Laksa may be plain looking and only have beancurd and bean sprouts. But do not be devised by its look. The creamy and spicy Laksa is probably the best you would have eaten in Singapore. The gravy will have you licking the last drop off the bowl in no time. It is that good. The serving for the Laksa at 2 dollars is small. But you can use this as an excuse to sample other dishes from Kwan Inn.
On the other hand, the texture of dumpling noodles (水饺面) is so-so but not really QQ. The stall places some ketchup by the side should you want to mix with the noodles. But it is really unnecessary as the sauce is already quite sweet. Also, the stall uses prepackaged dumplings which are slightly stiff and taste rather synthetic.
The Spinach Noodles (菠菜面) comes with sliced cabbages and bean sprouts. The noodles is springy, firm and uniquely green. The saving grace of the dish is the braised peanut and mushroom sauce. Unfortunately, the dumplings are also prepackaged like that of the dumpling noodles.
We strongly recommend the Laksa from Kwan Inn.
Kwan Inn is located about 1 bus stop from Aljunied MRT. You can also walk to Kwan Inn with ease from Aljunied MRT.
