    Tan Zi Ta Mini Egg TartsNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    True to its name, Tan Zi Ta mini egg tarts are small tartlets filled with burst of eggy custard flavour. The tarts are baked on the premise and it is recommended to eat these minis quickly when they are still hot as new batch comes out from the oven to properly savour the delightfulness of the freshly baked tarts. The silken texture of the fillings is light, with flaky crust to complement the taste. Because of its size, you do not even have to bite into it as it is easier to pop the whole thing in your mouth making it less messy than eating normal-sized tarts. Priced at RM0.90 per piece, you don’t need to be asked twice to gobble up a few pieces in one sitting.

    John King Egg TartNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Originally hailed from Hong Kong, the first premise in Malaysia specialized in offering different flavours of egg tarts. Most popular ones include the traditional egg tart, egg white tart and also durian-flavoured egg tart. As the name stated, the egg white tarts are made with only egg whites for the custard filling, it provides lighter taste and tofu-like texture—a less-guilty choice for those who wants to devour the tarts for more than one piece. The durian-flavoured egg tart is made from the real fruit, ensuing in strong elements in terms of taste and smell of the durian custard. The end result is the perfect ratio of sweetness. The thinner golden-brown pastry crust is crispier as it has thinner layer than usual tarts.
