Katong Chicken Curry Puff

Katong Chicken Curry Puff, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

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.

Mushy insides of curry puff, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

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.

  1. Hey, I've come across your blog and I love it!
    Anyway, have you tried this Argentinian's curry puff called 'empanadas'? It's on 9 Golden Mile Food Centre at level 1, I don't know the stall number, but it is a corner stall, opposite the Tiong Bahru Roasted Pork (#01-70).

    The stall sells pu tien noodles, pizza and empanadas. The lady learned to make empanadas in Argentina. You should try it especially the onion mozzarella. It is quite rare to find in Singapore.

    Unfortunately, she said she will open until 20th July 2011. And don't come on 18-19th July because it will be closed for cleaning.

    Cheers, Kon
