Curry puffs all the way from Småland

My craving for these crunchy puffies has finally been fixed.
Of all the nice curry puffs in town, I prefer IKEA's the most. Feel free to disagree wiv me :) but Homei's curry puffs are too greasy to my liking while Chang Kee's curry puffs come with thick layer of pastry.
After dreaming for the curry puffs for 3 months, I finally made my way to IKEA yesterday, braved the human traffic and joined the long queue just to get half a dozen of the puffs.
One puff is priced at RM1 while half a dozen costs RM5.50 only! The puffs come with egg slices too.
Wallop them hot.

Curry puffs! I think Ikea's curry puffs thus far are the most crispy i have tasted so far! Fillings are mildly spicy & sweet! Yummy!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

its funny to think ikea of all places..which bears no resemblance to the origin of curry puffs serve the best ones!..must try must try..next time b4 my movie in the curve i m gonna drop by.

Xiu Long Bao said...

CSB: mummum...they were piping hot too!

joe: yup! must try must try...Definitely worth trying with that kind of pricing...wat can u get with RM1 in KL rite?

I tried once only and i love it too but somehow the long queue...arrrghh...being lazy, i always walk pass while looking at other people munching. :(

Char Siew Bao said...

I dun think the queue is dat long... compared to waiting in line to catch a movie! or for gurls, compared to waiting in line to enter fitting room during MNG sale! @_@"

Xiu Long Bao said...

precious pea: I was about to say the same thing when char siew bao responded to ur comment :) It worth the wait!

CSB: U just reminded me of us taking turns to queue up @ MNG to make payment...the place was sooooo stuffy n' the queue took nearly an hour.

Xiu Long Bao said...

Precious Pea said...

Haha...CSB and xiu long bao, I don't queue for movie tickets cos i rather book it online. As for shopping, I don't go during sale time cos of the queue at fitting rooms and paying counter. But for food, ok..i will go queue for curry puffs next time i go ikea.

xiu long bao,
Ya, can get. But definitely not worth it loh. I think it's about AUD$1+ for one. And all kentang only for the filling if I'm not wrong. hehe.

jason said...

xiu long bao: Where's the shop you mentioned?? I also lurve those with anchovies inside... usually can get from Malay kuih stalls.
