The uncle selling the traditional Hainanese style curry puffs is really nice with a genuine smile for customers. It makes me want to buy more even though they curry puffs are expensive at S$1.20 each. The stuffing as well as the dough is prepared and fried on the spot. The dough is thin which is what I like and not thick and chunky. You just need to wait a while. The puffs tend to be quite spicy so be warned if you can’t take spice.
To be utterly honest, I am now craving for my aunt’s curry puffs – and this confirms to me that she makes the best ones. To me hers beats these Makansutra endorsed ones, Chunky Curry Puffs or any commercial ones, any day. She makes mutton ones too, but just for the family, when she has time and when the mood strikes.
Yes, this Hainanese curry puff stall has history, and has been noted by Makansutra (set up by K F Seetoh, Singapore’s most famous food critic who has hobnobbed with Anthony Bourdain) for being real yummy.
The sardine curry puffs have a red dot (food colouring) on them.
Luckily it was cool and slightly drizzling when we were here.
