With it being mooncake season, Old Chang Kee has released a limited edition Salted Egg Yam’O Puff which seem reminiscent of Teochew-style mooncakes.
We decided to give them a taste test to find out whether they are worth biting into.
The Old Chang Kee Salted Egg Yam’O Puff costs $2.20 a piece.
Old Chang Kee Salted Egg Yam’O Puff Review
READ: Haw Par Villa Reopens
First impressions were that it was smaller than the regular curry puffs. Shaped like a circle, it reminded us of a chicken pie.
When we cut into it, there was an empty air pocket above the purplish-coloured filling. The salted egg yolk nicely filled up the centre of the puff.
However, as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
When we bit into the Old Chang Kee Salted Egg Yam’O Puff, we actually quite enjoyed the taste. The yam paste is not too sweet. We are not sure if it is HPB approved but it definitely received our approval.
The amount of filling was ample as well. We imagine that if the puff was as big as regular Curry’O, it would probably be a bit too much.
The salted egg yolk didn’t have a very prominent taste. Instead, it lent itself more to the overall texture of the puff.
Frankly, we quite enjoyed it and munched down a second puff.
