Kway Guan Huat Popiah- ended up with disappointment

J: After reading all the news n hype abt Singapore's one of e best popiah from Kway Guan Huat, we travelled under e scorching sun in search of the popiah to replace our no 1 Qi Ji popiah. One major complaint is the location of this kopitiam. The numbering in Joo Chiat is really qt weird n we went e wrong way, walked for abt 15min n asked ard b4 we finally spotted Kway Guan Huat.

We ordered both the popiah n kueh pie tee. Seriously for e popiah, other than being generous with e fillings n e crispy bits tasted different from other popiahs, ive no other positive reviews for it. 1stly, the popiah skin is too thick n chewy for my liking. 2ndly, the turnips r pretty tasteless to me n they're not warm. 3rdly, the sweet sauce is not sweet enough. All in all, i went in with high hopes n ended up in disappointment. I even think the kueh pie tee is better bcos e pie is v crispy but same fillings r used. I dont think i will ever head back there for popiah, will just stick to our no 1 qi ji popiah with super thin skin n i simply adore their sweet sauce n fillings! Beauty lies in e beholder. Dont come after me, fans of kway guan huat popiah!

A: Seriously, at the first look of the popiah, it was not appetizing at all. Thinking that it could be the "best popiah in sg", I still took the bite anyway. It took me quite a while to chew off the skin! And the filling falls out easily as well. There's nothing special about the sauce. It somehow did not combined well with the fillings inside the popiah. It's just like eating 3 separate things together (skin+fillings+sauce) = popiah?? I don't think so..

J's ratings: 3/5 for popiah, 3.25/5 for kueh pie tee
A's ratings: 2.75/5 for popiah, 3.25/5 for kueh pie tee
