Yes, you read it rightcurry puff. You must be wondering but Huat Koay, Fei Fei and myself do enjoy looking for edible things we can put into our mouths and down to our big tummies.

Curry puffs doesn’t quite fit to be a dish but rather a snack that we would like to have after having proper meals. It’s like a snack that adds the icing to our sumptuous meal where you get the feeling ….. Ahhhhhh, I’m full.

This curry puff stall is located at the corner of kopitiam at Pulau Tikus Market, same row as the Pulau Tikus lok lok. The stall is located outside the kopitiam.

What we like about the Curry puffs here is that they are big in size and the length is typically same size as your palm. Also, each time when we buy these curry puffs, they’re always piping hot and just out from the frying pan. Maybe we’re just in luck everytime? 

The ingredients inside is similar to regular curry puffs but in larger quantity, obviously. You’ll get potatoes and chunks of chicken meat inside. The skin and crust are also crunchy; perhaps they just got out from the pan.

The stall is available mostly during daytime and each curry puff sells at RM1.50. Fei Fei always buy two each time… for himself!

    It used to be RM1, then RM1.20 and now RM1.50!!! And they used to put a quarter hard boiled egg inside.

    Yes you are lucky every time. Sometimes I get cold curry puffs :(

  12. Snapshots |

    yup it's nice curry puff, one of the more expensive ones but that come with quality

  13. penangtuapui |

    hi daniel chang... we can give you some hints of where to hunt for great food while you're on your trip here.. . do drop us email at penangtuapui@gmail.com

    hi june, stacy.. we've tried the Thai laksa many times but we observed the quality has dropped this few years. i'm not sure if the lady still there but the last time i went there was a man handling the stall.. maybe the husband or the son or someone else??

  14. penangtuapui |

    buzzingbee... i should ask you along the next time we go buy the curry puffs... so that you'll get hot curry puffs too :)

    snapshots... remember there's a chinese saying.. "the portion of money you pay is the portion of goods you get"..

    but then i don't this holds much longer since everything keeps going up everyday ... :'(

    This is another great curry puff stall in Penang. A bit expensive compared to those selling elsewhere. Pulau Tikus, rich man area mar.. haha. But with this price, the filling sure worth the amount paid.

    By the way, they are selling at RM1.40 each from 7am - 8pm daily. The curry puffs are homemade and they sold around 800pcs a day.

    Hmm... come we go sell curry puffs. With an estimate of RM300 net profit per day, it's even more than an engineer's salary.. O_o""""

    is this the one that is at the moulmein road corner kopi tiam? there is one i tried there very good. a malay makcik and her daughter manning the stall, afternoon time is the man and son. they have curry puff and nasi lemak also. cos i love their curry puff. lots of onions, potatoes and some chicken meat.

  18. penangtuapui |

    hi constance..

    Bingo, that's the one!
    yes, they do sell nasi lemak as well but everytime we go there, our aim is to have curry puffs only.

    Recently, i do notice the size getting slightly smaller although the price remains at RM.140
