Okay, when i professed that I love everything durian, I wasn’t expecting this. Not in a million years.
I mean, durian curry puff?
I repeat. Durian. Curry. Puff.
Who could’ve come up with something like that? Well, only someone who’s extremely confident in their curry puffs would ever think of something like that.
Someone like Old Chang Kee.
Old Chang Kee To Sell Durian Curry Puff & Jackfruit Curry Puff
At the end of July, Old Chang Kee is out to either impress (or depress) you with their latest crazy-science invention.
The Durian Curry Puff.
Imagine their signature curry puff.
And add some durian to it.
Okay, I’d admit that even as a self-proclaimed durian fanatic, this might just be too much for me.
But then again, you’re talking about Old Chang Kee which managed to make chilli crab curry puff a thing.
Together with Nasi Lemak puff.
So at least they have a track record of pulling off some impossible stuff.
And if durian isn’t to your taste, they have jackfruit curry puffs too
Imagine this: sweet, fragrant jackfruit with savoury curry in a crispy shell.
And since jackfruit is an ingredient that’s been used in traditional Indonesian, Indian Malay and Peranakan curry dishes for ages, it’s a lesser leap of faith for the uninitiated, if you get what I mean.
So, Where Can You Get Your Hands on These Babies?
I mean, durian curry puff and jackfruit curry puff? That’s practically a history-in-the-making stuff right there.
No matter how abhorrent, or amazed, at the idea you are, you’d definitely have to get your hands on some of that for yourself.
So here are the deets for you.
On 27 and 28 July 2018, make your way down to Velocity @ Novena Square Indoor Atrium and join Old Chang Kee on Curry Day 2018.
At this event, you can purchase both the Durian Curry Chicken O and Jackfruit Curry Chicken O at the price of $4 for 2 pieces.
By the way, they’re sold on a while-stocks-last basis, so you better fast-hand-fast-leg, huh.
Celebrating CURRY with S’poreans
Going all the way to Novena (especially if you stay in Jurong) for just two pieces of curry puffs?
There’s more than that.
Like we said, it’s an Old Chang Kee event, so if that’s all their event is going to be about, we’re going to be damn disappointed.
Luckily, our espionage (read: ass-peon-nug) expert managed to dig out more information about the event.
And it’s looking exciting AF.
But because we’re not going to bombard you with information (it’s Monday, we’ll let your boss do that to you instead), we’re just going to tell you about some of the highlights in that event.
