Katong Chicken Curry Puff
Right next to the Katong Sliced Fish Soup was the Katong Chicken Curry Puff, which apparently has been in business for a very long time - 30 years? It's a very non-descript looking stall, easily missed, right at the end of the inner row facing the wet market.
When I tried to break open the curry puff, I found the crust surprisingly hard. Oh goody, I hoped it was a solid crunchy crust! But once it was open, it was more buttery than hard. The insides were very moist and the potato cubes really mushy and soft. The curry is very much Chinese-style in terms of taste (i.e. not bold). I would have preferred it more spicy, personally. Not a lot of chicken in it (I encountered maybe two slivers) and certainly no boiled egg pieces in mine. Yes to a nostalgic-tasting curry puff but for S$1 each, I would have liked to see better ingredients inside than just curried potato.
