Was scrolling through Oddle Eats for some food to bring back home near the office over the weekend, and chanced upon these egg tarts which had been recently introduced on Victor’s Kitchen menu. While the original egg tarts have been available on Victor’s Kitchen menu for quite a while, they have also released new variants like the Egg White, Matcha and D24 Durian — all of which available as an ala-carte item of 2pcs, or in the form of the Egg Tarts Extravaganza that sees all four flavours in one box.

Having them on the same night after self pick-up at their Sunshine Plaza outlet in the evening, the egg tarts seemed to have survived the journey rather well — the egg tarts here come with a cookie-crust that held up the fillings pretty well, though it was on the softer, slightly crumbly side. The top two picks for me would have been easily the Japanese Matcha and D24 Durian; the former being a rather interesting fusion that gives the classic egg tart a modern, Japanese twist that would gel well with hipsters who loves all-things Matcha. For one, I was surprised how the matcha-infused egg curd was nothing too sweet nor eggy; choosing to emphasise on the bitter undertones of the Japanese tea that gave it a different sort of appeal that I appreciated — some pretty quality Matcha that went it there. The D24 Durian featured fibrous durian flesh hidden within the middle of the egg curd — carried the pungency of the king of fruits with creamy and smooth durian flesh hidden amidst the jiggly and aptly sweet egg curd; an additional touch to their standard egg tart. In comparison, the Egg White Tart comes with a lower level of sweetness — have initially expected it to come pretty close to Le Cafe’s Soya Beancurd tarts but this was almost akin to having egg white meringue in egg curd form with a more manageable level of sweetness; preferred this over the standard egg tart that the box also came with.

If I can only pick one flavour out of the four to have, the Japanese Matcha Tart is the one I will go for again — I liked how they didn’t butcher this one and went for a flavour that focuses on the umami, bitter undertones of the Japanese tea; totally something that hits my taste buds for sure!
