Tip Top Curry Puff

I have been eating this curry puff since I was young, when I was in upper primary which is like 15 years ago. At that time, this curry puff cost only 60 cents! Personally, I feel that Tip Top Curry Puff is thebest curry puff in Singapore. Next will be the curry puff sold by ‘Epok Epok Central’ at Eunos Crescent.
Tip Top Curry Puff
The signage says since 1979! And yes, there was a queue of about 4 people in front of me. It sells just curry puff yet there is a queue, speaks volume about its business. Another thing to note is that they hand-made the curry puff on the spot and then deep fry it in batches. This way, the curry puff anyone orders will be freshly made and hot too. Yes, its not warm, but hot! Normally for me I will tell the lady I do not need a plastic bag as I want to eat it immediately. The lady will always say the same thing, be careful, its hot.
Magazines/Newspapers recommending Tip Top Curry Puff
Look at how many magazines and newspapers cuttings there are that featured Tip Top Curry Puffs.
Tip Top Curry Puff $1.10

Higher cost of living has pushed the price up to $1.10. But its still cheaper than 1A and Old Chang Kee which cost $1.20 each.  And in terms of taste department, I like Tip Top best. It is best to eat this immediately after buying. If you leave it after a few hours, the crust taste different (even if you make it warm again). The crust is crispy on the outside.Inside it contains moist pieces of mashed potatoes with chunky chicken bites and a slice of hard-boiled egg along with the right level of spiciness. In my haste to finish this curry puff up, I forgot to take a picture of how it looks inside! Best for you to try it yourself!

ps: you can smell the fragance of the curry puff once you are near the stall. So if you can’t find the stall, follow the smell! =D
