Coconut Egg Tart

$2.10 · 10 Reviews

I pass by Tong Heng on my way to work everyday but this is my first time popping in for a post-dinner snack. The signature diamond-shaped egg tart ($1.90) is clearly what most people come to Tong Heng for. The tart is buttery, crisp and thinner than a typical egg tart shell - the delicate balance between firm and crumbly is commendable. The egg custard is soft like tofu, creamy in the middle, fragrant and not too sweet. I could easily pop a few of these! The baked Pork Bun ($1.90), however, is underwhelming. The flaky crust is nice, but the pork filling is too hard and sweet for my liking. Perhaps it will fare better if it is warmed up. Nonetheless, wouldn’t mind returning just for the egg tart, or the coconut egg tart that I did not manage to try as it was sold out when I went.

As much as I love their traditional red white box, this hipster packaging definitely adds a refreshing touch to the brand. It also features die cut inserts to hold the individual tart in place, of which explains the expansion in size. Anyway, cheers to @tonghengsg’s return as I’ve longed for their coconut egg tart!💛

Ask anyone for the best egg tarts in Singapore and they'll probably tell you Tong Heng's. Like diamonds (literally and figuratively), the egg tarts vanish from the display shelf in minutes as customers easily make purchases in boxes of 4/6. Sweet & fragrant custard held in a crispy & flaky crust, Tong Heng's egg tarts are a delightful snack to have for your afternoon.

And really, sometimes the classic, original flavours beat any other fancy add-ons, so this coconut version didn't win my heart (it was also too sweet for me).

The allure of traditional pastries.. Long strips of fresh grated coconut sit in a well of wobbly egg custard enveloped by plain, flaky pastry. Sweet, but not overly so. The lotus paste pastry on the other hand, while also very flaky, i would've liked a little more buttery. However a generous stuffing of lotus paste made up for it all, and is best downed with hot tea.

not as amazing as it sounds to be! one piece costs $1.60! to me I would prefer KFC's egg tarts to this :-( the "biscuit" is quite hard but it is also flaky so it ended up all over me when I bite it. it's considered quite sweet as well. all in all, I wouldn't go back there again. but they sell mooncakes now too! there are coconut egg tarts there as well but I only tried the normal egg tarts.
