It’s time to say bye bye to the ordinary bite-sized, curry potato flavored and scantily filled curry puffs sold at the road side.
We heard about a place that serves probably the best curry puff in town and it’s at Oh Pappa, located at Damansara Uptown.
Oh Pappa serves puffs, butter squares, pies, tarts and bom.
Oh Pappa also has a few tables allocated for those who which to have a quick bite in the comfort of their shop unit.
The thing that makes Oh Pappa special is the variety of flavors to choose. Their puffs’ flavors are not the common curry or sardine puffs sold at the road side. Though the puffs may look the same from the outside but wait till you check out the inside … it matters to some!
While I was busy with puffs. Goldfries ordered something else. Just check out what goldfries ordered, … a Mushroom Chicken Pie (RM3.50). He said it’s one of the best mushroom chicken flavor pie ever tasted.
Oh sorry, forgot – lengthy introduction. 😛 Anyway the pie was nice. I like that the contents aren’t like those I had, where it doesn’t taste savoury, and generally felt like a random mishmash of mixed vege and a some mixes. It’s called Mushroom Chicken Pie but I don’t recall any distinct taste or feel of mushroom, it tastes pretty much like the usual chicken pie…….. a tasty one, minus the mushroom. Probably sliced and diced to pieces that I can’t feel.
Ok, now back to the puffs instead of the pie. We were told how to differentiate them … by the alphabetical symbols located at the skin of the puff. The ones in the picture below are “O” for otak-otak and “Y” for yam flavors puffs.
In terms of pricing, honestly I think is towards the high side for curry puff.
But hey, look at the plus point … it’s bigger size in comparison to the road side curry puff illustrated in picture below. Also, each puff is generally pact with fillings. This is where you get your value buy. Like the saying “You get what you paid for” ….
A few puffs’ flavors which I hope you should try – the durian (RM2.80), pumpkin (RM2.40), yam (RM2.40), otak-otak (RM2.80), tuna (RM2.80), black pepper chicken (RM2.80) and mushroom chicken (RM2.80). They even have veggie (RM1.90) flavor for those vege lovers or vegetarian people. You will also find the more common flavors like the curry chicken (RM1.90) and sardine (RM1.90).
My number 1 all time favorite is still the durian flavor. The compact filling is soft, light and creamy in texture. The sweetness is just nice for me. Each chew releases the distinctive taste of durian, in fact it felt like eating durian. Just a bite, will makes me forget that I’m actually eating a puff but a real durian. This durian flavored puff is selling like hot cakes and the supplies are quite limited. At times, the stock will run out for days 🙁 .
With the variety of the puffs’ flavors, you can opt for many choices according to your crave and mood. At least now, the thought of puffs will not bore you too soon. Inside indeed matters when it comes to food 🙂
