Best Puffs in KL

Written by Updated ago

Remember back in the good old days where curry puff (or “karipap” in Malay) used to be one of the ideal afternoon snacks among kids and adults? It’s easy to see why: this crescent-shaped pastry heaven, often stuffed with fillings such as curried potatoes and succulent chicken chunks wrapped on the inside, is one fulfilling comfort food. Today, puff has evolved more than just your average curry version. There are different types of puffs with different fillings to choose from. Of course, curry puff remains an all-time local favourite, but why stop here when you can enjoy other puff varieties as well?

    Beard PapaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    It was heavily advertised as the “world’s best cream puffs”, and that is not a hyperbole since Beard Papa really means business. Although the much-acclaimed cream puff has become increasingly pricey over the years, they remain an irresistible pick-me-up pastry especially for those with a sweet tooth. Among their must-try cream puff is the signature Original Vanilla flavour. Blessed with a crispy layer of crust on the outside, the puff tastes like ice cream once you sink your teeth on the inside. From here, this is where the best part begins – a dreamy blend of pure Madagascar vanilla beans and whipped cream custard that melts into your mouth. Meanwhile, the filling triumphs with a fine balance of buttery aroma and sweetness of a rich cream.
    Tips

    If you buy 6 cream puffs, you’ll get one for free.

    Things to expect

    Premium ingredient is what makes Beard Papa such a sought-after cream puff to die for.

    Best with

    Chocolate Éclair, Cheesecake Stick and Durian Puff.

    Price

    RM5.60 to RM8.30

    Mr. Chiam’s Pisang Goreng StallPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    A stroll in Brickfields wouldn’t be complete without paying a visit to Mr. Chiam’s Pisang Goreng stall. It may look like an ordinary Chinese stall, but this is the place where you’ll find the best pisang goreng you’ve ever tasted. However, pisang goreng isn’t just a star attraction here. The curry puff is equally top notch as well. Here, the curried potatoes are perfectly moist with a right balance of spiciness, while the pastry shell is thin and crunchy enough to make you go for a second piece.
    Tips

    To avoid long queue, you can call Mr. Chiam at 012-6172511 to place your order.

    Things to expect

    While many stalls prefer recycled oil when come to deep-frying fried pastries, Mr. Chiam favours fresh cooking oil instead to retain the food quality.

    Best with

    Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritters) and Kuih Bakul.

    Price

    RM1.50

    Homi Chicken Curry PuffPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Big on taste and big on filling, Homi’s version of curry puff is one satisfying snack that doesn’t skimp on ingredients. The curry filling is strong and very fragrant, but not overly spicy. Then there’s the generous combination of diced chicken, mushroom, green pea, carrot, potato and onion all stuffed together in a lip-smacking pastry shell. And yes, the size of the puff is big that justified its higher-than-average price sold in the shopping mall.
    Tips

    Get 20% off if you buy chicken curry puff from 8pm onwards.

    Things to expect

    This Homi outlet is thoughtful enough to provide customer the best of both worlds: spicy and non-spicy chicken puff.

    Best with
