Written by Updated ago

Curry puffs are good old friends. Easily accessible and never lets you down at any time of the day, regardless of the mushrooming fancy and Instagram-oriented pastries as well as snacks. Comfort is the best word to describe this semi-dome delight. It’s typically curry infused potatoes encapsulated within a deep-fried pastry shell, and thankfully, following the march of time and insatiable appetite, more mouthwatering flavours are constantly introduced. That’s rhythm to ears. A piece of curry puff that keeps you going all day long? Cheese, crab and black pepper beef giving potato a day off? Now this is just a trailer, keep scrolling for the finest offerings in Johor Bahru that changes your viewpoint on curry puffs.

    Cheese grilled chicken, cheese chicken bologna, mutton masala, apple pie, beef black pepper, cheese chicken sausage and chicken curry, it’s not a menu from a fine dining restaurant, and it’s a food truck that has taken curry puffs to a whole new level. Looks like our local puff went for an education abroad. If varieties are what you need, welcome to the curry puff mecca on wheels. Consistently out fresh from the fryer, the plump bombs with thin and crispy casing oozes with wondrous aroma and lip-smacking filling at each mouthful. Truly justifying why locals flock to the truck like moths to a flame.

    Nestled in Taman Dahlia morning market, this bustling stall has been garnering a loyal following with arsenal of curry puff goodness. Straight off the scorching fryer, their beef, sardine and chicken renditions are widely vaunted as it’s delightfully savoury with a wedge of egg towing inside the ribbon-thin carapace with crispy crimped edges. However, if you find them not wowing your taste buds anymore, raise the curtain for their latest flavour that has become the talk of the surrounding vicinity, say hello to Chili crabstick with salted egg. It’s truly one-of-a-kind puff that lingers in your mind for a long time as the balance of heat and savoury is spot-on.
