Any advice for finding the best curry puffs within the limits of public transporation? The last time my mother and I were in Singapore, we bought some curry puffs from a woman near Chinatown--she was a street vendor, probably selling without a license (she literally had a little box set up on the sidewalk), and my mother loved them, especially the sardine ones.
I know Old Chang Kee has been recommended, but it has mixed reviews. I found a blog post about Novelty Crispy Curry Puff at Blk 19 Toa Payoh Lorong 7, but it seems to be a bit far from the SMRT (although if there's a bus that goes nearby, we could probably handle that). I could go on my own to pick some up, but I don't think my mother could make the walk. I'd prefer flakey layered dough like NCCP has (old-style puffs).
Are there any other recommedations out there? Looking primarily for sardine for my mother, but I prefer more standard fare (potato, chicken).
