Seen and heard to be the best local Singaporean food
The curry puff is the quintessential local snack that satisfies those mid-day munchies with its crispy pastry shell and soft curried filling, sometimes with a slice of hard-boiled egg.
Whether the Chinese-made curry puff, the Indian karipap or the Malay epok-epok, this humble pastry snack is definitely a local love.
Epok Epok Central
Epok Epok Central is heralded to have the best epok-epok in town. These puffs have a lighter, flaky pastry and are stuffed either with potato, potato and egg, or sardines. They are fried fresh throughout the day so you’ll get them nice and warm most of the time.

These karipaps also contain the typical curried potatoes within flaky layered pastry. However, these karipaps are eaten with their ‘special sauce’ which brings out the flavour even further.
