J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff is a popular stall at Amoy Street Food Centre, that is known for its delicious and crispy curry puffs. The stall has received recognition from the Michelin Guide and is a regular awardee on the Bib Gourmand list.
J2 specialises in just puffs, which come in 4 different flavours—curry potato chicken, black pepper chicken, sardine and yam paste.
What makes J2’s puffs stand out is that they have a really crispy, crunchy, light and flaky pastry crust. It’s almost impossible to eat a puff without having crumbs falling everywhere.
Crispy Curry Potato Chicken Puff $1.80
Generous filling of curried potatoes and chicken bits. The potato part seems to be a mix of mashed potatoes and cubed potatoes. Nice depth of textures. Curry is tasty too.
Crispy Sardine Puff $1.80
Very meaty texture, with lots of chunky sardines. Onions are crunchy. Ooh, this is quite spicy too! But doesn’t taste fishy at all, which is good.
Crispy Black Pepper Chicken Puff $2.00
I actually like this better than the curry potato chicken one. Lots of tender chicken chunks in this. Not overly peppery too, very nicely balanced. Slightly spicy and very saucy.
Crispy Yam Paste Puff $1.80
If you love yam, you’ll sure like this. Its size is smaller than the other puffs. Yam filling is very rich in flavour and not too sweet.
I thoroughly enjoyed these puffs from J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff. However, I would still prefer the texture of regular shortcrust pastry for curry puffs (like those from Old Chang Kee or Rolina).
For those of you who haven’t tried the curry puffs from this stall, I would definitely recommend you to!
