Tanglin Curry Puff at Hong Lim

Tanglin Curry Puff at Hong Lim Hawker Centre may well have the best curry puffs in the CBD area. The puffs are pretty huge. Flaky pastry, lots of potato, lovely chicken chunks and a slice of egg make this a worthwhile snack for only $1.20. My one grouse is that the pastry can be a tad oily, even though they claim to drain it very well, so well that they don’t provide paper to soak up the oil. Only plastic bags at this stall.

Here’s what it looks like the moment before entering the Jaws of Greed.

What sets this puff apart from the rest are the juicy chunks of chicken thigh in the filling. While there’s of course more potato than anything else in there, the chicken chunks are very moreish. I also liked the egg a lot, it’s a little treat, a diversion in the midst of the curry goodness.

They also do sardine and yam versions. I’m not keen on the sardine version because it’s very potato-y, I prefer the more traditional sardine, onion and tomato only filling. Even though I keep meaning to try the yam flavour, which is filled with sweet yam paste, I never get round to doing it. I always get too attracted to the chicken flavour!
