There is a restaurant in Nanning, China called ‘The Mamak Stall’ and surprisingly the locals there are NOT queuing up for the nasi lemak or teh tarik, but for the curry puffs.

‘The Mamak Stall’ is ran by a 30-year-old Malaysian, Huang Xin Yi, who is born from Johor

Huang used to work in a bank in Singapore for three years before starting up the business in China in June last year.

The curry puffs cost 12 Chinese Yuan or RM7 each and it is limited to 100 pieces a day
