Nonya Beef Rendang Puff

it has now launched an all-new Nyonya Beef Rendang ($1.40) curry puff, created from a home recipe by simmering beef with spices for long hours. The meat is soft and not too dry, with a tantalizing subtle sweetness that is not usually found in curry puffs. 

Across all three types of curry puff, the ratio of filling to skin was perfect, but the quality of the pastry skin wielded less clout among the curry puffs specialists in Singapore. Even after trying to toast or microwave them, the pastry skin remained soft and pliable, yet achieving its full potential of crisp and flakiness. 

Nonetheless, the excellent fillings cannot be overlooked. For full review and pics, visit www.dairycream.blogspot.com

Tip Top has a new Nonya Beef Rendang puff and a new outlet in Aperia Mall. My favorite is still the Chicken Curry puff and i usually get mine from their RafflesCity mall outlet. You can get more info from their website www.tiptopcurrypuff.com

standard has dipped

Tip top used to be my favorite curry puff. However, since a transfer of ownership to Swenson group, the standard has dipped tremendously. Long gone are the puffs richly filled with chicken. What presents now seems to be commercialized puffs which cost $1.10, meant for maximum profit. Perhaps that's the difference between family run business and corporate taken business. This however is still above average puffs, but it's fast degrading to the puffs u can commonly find, 3 for a dollar(lesser fillings)

not as good as before

Another visit to Ang Mo Kio to patronise Tip Top Curry Puff. You can find more information of Tip Top Curry Puff from my previous post here and here (1st2nd)

Still not use to their new exterior, prefer the previous which was more down to earth and with a modest feel. Tip Top Curry Puff (The Puff Factory) is halal certified. Hence, Muslim friends will be able to savour this. 

The packaging has also changed. Use to be plain packaging with no design. Now it comes with prints that showcase the name and also the website of Tip Top. Well, this is the norm now, branding plays a big role. I guess part of the price increase (i.e. 20cents) was partly due to the re-branding. 

With a price increase, somehow, the size of the curry puff has shrunk slightly. Ironic. 

The consolation was that the taste of the curry puff was still as good as before. Crisp crust while the inside was full of moist mashed potatoes, chicken chunks, egg with spices. But it was not as fragrant as before. Remember, how I mentioned that one could smell the curry puff from afar. You can literally smell your way to the shop if you can't locate it. Now, you would not be able to do that.

not the same anymore

Hi just like to notify that the current tip top is not the same owner as before. The sifu opened another puff shop at tpy central infront of kfc. You can still recognise the old ma
