Tanglin Crispy Curry Puff 東陵酥皮咖喱角 is located in Maxwell Food Centre. I still remember then when I was walking around the hawker centre and the owner making the curry puffs on the spot caught my attention. After all, how often do you get freshly made curry puff? Nowadays most curry puffs are made in a central kitchen or factory before being sent to the stores to be fried.
This stall speciailses in only curry puffs. They sell 3 varieties; Potato Chicken and Egg Curry Puff $1.50, Potato Sardine and Egg Curry Puff $1.50 and Fish Otah Curry Puff $1.60.The unique selling points are definitely the fact that the curry puffs are made freshly on the spot and their Fish Otah Curry Puff is not something can that be bought elsewhere.
|Potato Chicken and Egg Curry Puff $1.50|
This is the Potato Chicken and Egg Curry Puff $1.50. The price of the curry puff has increased quite a fair bit from $1.20 to $1.50 (2011 - $1.20, 2013 - $1.40, 2015 - $1.50). Fortunately, the size (big and plump) and taste of the curry puff remains the same.
The thin, crisp and flaky crust had a slight buttery fragrance. The fillings comprised of moist mashed potatoes with chicken bits mixed with a blend of aromatic curry powder. In addition, a small piece of hard boiled egg in the curry puff. Overall, the Chicken Curry Puff was quite decent. I would eat it if i pass by this place.
|Fish Otah Curry Puff $1.60|
The Fish Otah Curry Puff $1.60 is something that is executed differently that I do not see elsewhere. It was surprisingly good. Instead of moist potatoes or chicken meat, it was filled with generous amount of fresh succulent fish chunks mixed with curry powder.
If you are at Maxwell Food Centre or at Tanjong Pagar, this is a snack worth trying. Try it immediately upon purchase as curry puffs taste best when they are freshly cooked. They tend to taste different when you reheat them.
