If you are familiar with Singaporean cuisine, then you already know what curry puffs are. If not, then you're in for a treat! Teresa, the owner of QQ Singapore Cafe, lived in Singapore for 20-some years and came back to Taiwan to share some of the tastiest things to come out of Singapore in the last few decades. Her restaurant, which is a Chinese play on words for the word "curry puff", is the only place in Taiwan that sells these tasty treats. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. Curry puffs look like crispy dumplings or large samosas. Because Singapore is so diverse culturally, no one knows exactly where the dish came from originally, and some even say it came from the U.K. No matter where it came from, curry puffs are the most popular afternoon snack in Singapore. The flavors here include Curry Chicken, Black Pepper Chicken Curry, Sardines (NT$60), Red Beans, and Taro (NT$55). Right now they have a buy-3-get-1-free special.
B. QQ offers all types of Singaporean delicacies: Bak Kut, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Shrimp Noodles, and Lemon Chicken Culet Rice (NT$150), a dish created by Teresa.
