Portuguese Egg Tart ($4.50/4)
⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
🍴This unassuming bakery at Toa Payoh HDB Hub has no digital presence. After years of strolling by, we decided to give it a try and left impressed by this hidden gem. At $4.50 for 4 or $6 for 6 pieces, it’s also one of the more affordable egg tarts around.

Unlike the short crust Hong Kong versions, these Portuguese egg tarts had a gloriously crisp puff pastry. The 5+ layers of crispy goodness reminded us of perfectly flaky croissant layers (recommend toasting them before eating), and went well with the egg custard 😋. We appreciated that it wasn’t too sweet although felt that the egg custard could be slightly smoother and eggy. Also would have preferred - slightly higher filling : crust ratio, as while we were fans of the crispy pastry, they leaned towards the buttery and oily side. More egg custard would have provided a better balance to cut through some grease.
