Hawaiian Puff From Pie Connection

Pauline and I were very privileged this morning to get a taste of Pie Connection's very special and exclusive Hawaiian puff and boy, was it really special!

This puff was done as a one-off by special request for one of their customer, and as such, it is akin to a limited edition of sorts. Nevertheless, here is our thoughts on this puff.

Somewhat similar to a Hawaiian pizza, this puff contained chunky bits of pineapple (the owner mentioned that the pineapples came from Philippines, which explained the huge chunkiness and succulence of the fruit), and honeycombed ham.

Overall, the fillings were really flavorsome, with the savory and the sweet portions coming together really well. The ham was really nice and tender, and had a nice aroma to it, and the pineapple was really refreshing without ever getting too sweet.

On top of this, there were also nice crunchy portions of onions as well (similar to their wonderful tuna puffs) and this added to the overall texture of the puff. They also added a huge dose of pepper, which gave it a slight spicy kick, but not too overpoweringly so.

With the usual flaky and delicious crust, this Hawaiian puff is a winner. Too bad this is only on special request and not a regular item, as I think this would be very popular among the younger ones out there!

  1. Very interesting! I've not seen pineapple in puffs :)

  2. It is indeed special and we were all fortunate to taste it.. Here is my take as posted in my facebook image link:
    05 Feb 2011. CNY festive special - Hawaiian Puff fillings with slice of Philippines Pineapple, slice of Smooth Honey Glazed Ham, onions, tinge of peppery spiciness with his usual nice crunchy tasty crust. Very interesting refreshing nice taste but this is only available on special order and need minimum of 2-3 days advance order. This is a little more expensive at SGD1.50 each.
