    Ming Xiang Tai Pastry Shop

    Ming Xiang Tai Pastry shop is famous for their range of traditional Chinese pastry and one of the sought-after pastries is, you guess it, egg tart. The recipe for this delightful treat goes back since 1960s, so you can imagine how traditional the taste would be. The fluffy filling for the tart is not too sweet, with crispy shell to go along with it. Though it is best eaten while hot and if you manage to get the batch that just got out from the oven, do wait for a few moments or you’ll take the risk of burning your tongue. But for this specific tart, it could be just worth it.

    Bird's Nest Egg Tart @ 92 Armenian

    For those who wants to try dessert with more nutritional value and feeling less guilty about it, 92 Armenian might be the place for you. The restaurant serves plenty of dessert with an additional ingredient to it: bird’s nest. The tart is a smooth egg custard with buttery, crumbly crust, and topped with bird’s nest. Priced at RM8.00 per piece, it might sound a bit steep than normal egg tart, but remember that the bird’s nest can be considered as one of the most expensive delicacies. Still sceptical? You just have to go and try this one out!

    Tho Yuen RestaurantNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Slicing the egg tart from Tho Yuen Restaurant in the middle, you will be greeted with the sight of the glossy, smooth custard. The egg tart has crispy thin crust that settles higher than the filing, but do not worry, it is the perfect crust-filling ratio. Since the tarts are baked freshly on the premise, you can see how the top glistens when it arrived at your table, emphasizing on the smoothness of the baked custard.

    Wheat Connection Bakery

    The bakery offers an extensive range of French pastries, breads and also cakes in-store. The egg custard of the tart has the sweetness that is spot-on, as it is not overwhelmingly sweet making sure that it is flavourful. The puff pastry is buttery and crackles when you hold onto. A dash of cinnamon on top with the caramelization of the custard are the perfect additional touch to these tartlets.
