Ah Seng Kueh Chap is situated in Rooyi Cafe which is located at India Street Pedestrian Mall and is probably one of the places that have been serving Kueh Chap for more than decades in Kuching, Sarawak! I notice that there are two ways of serving Kueh Chap, either you dunk everything in one bowl or you can have them separately. So, here, you can choose to either have it all in one bowl or have it separately. To each its own way! Here, you can choose the type of pork meat or pork innards you want. To eat kueh chap with full satisfaction, choose the pork meat and innards that you enjoy!
