Tip Top : NEW Nyonya Beef Rendang and $1 Puff Promotion

Tip Top is not a new name to many Singaporeans, especially those who lived in Ang Mo Kio area. Famous for its "tip top" curry puff, it has now launched an all-new Nyonya Beef Rendang ($1.40) curry puff, created from a home recipe by simmering beef with spices for long hours.
From its humble beginnings as a kopitiam stall in 1979, Tip Top has expanded to 5 outlets and more are slated to opened in 2015, including Changi Airport Terminal 2 and 3 (Transit)! Times may have changed but the recipe and production method remained the same. Each puff is still handmade with all ingredients prepared from scratch. It was sheer joy tucking into the new Beef Rendang because the meat is soft and not too dry, with a tantalizing subtle sweetness that is not usually found in curry puffs. 
Across all three types of curry puff, the ratio of filling to skin was perfect, but the quality of the pastry skin wielded less clout among the curry puffs specialists in Singapore. Even after trying to toast or microwave them, the pastry skin remained soft and pliable, yet achieving its full potential of crisp and flakiness. 
Nonetheless, the excellent fillings cannot be overlooked. I enjoyed the Sardines ($1.40) very much because it was not only tangy but the addition of Chilli and chili padi imbued another dimension of heat that complemented the soft caramelized onions. But for non-regular chilli eaters, do stand by a cup of water. 
The best is still of course, the top-selling curry chicken curry puff ($1.40). I don't know and I doubt I'll never know which 18 spices have been handpicked and blended into the curry paste (secret formula). However, every bite is bursting with robust flavours, as if I was digging into a pot of curry chicken. Chunky chicken cubes, smooth curried potato, slices of boiled eggs, it's a simple yet profound snack that holds a special position in the hearts of many Singaporeans. 
From 26th Dec 2014 to 7th Jan 2015, all curry puffs will be sold at $1 (up to $1.40) at a temporary booth in Takashimaya Orchard basement.
