🥧 Strawberry St Honoré Tart
📍Delicatesse (@delicatesse.sg)
📌 Tanjong Pagar
💰 $9.50

Been seeing Delicatesse all over my feed for a while now and I finally went down to visit them. This Strawberry St Honore Tart stands out in particular because of the addition of whole macarons to its already loaded heap of fillings.

Honestly I was a little underwhelmed because the cream tasted a bit cheap and the strawberry flavour itself wasn't very natural. The tart base was a bit too thick too, and tasted a bit one dimensional. I did like the macarons though, they were crisp and chewy on the inside.

Has some improvements to be made in terms of the quality, but it does look pretty.

🥧 Pistachio Strawberry Tart
📍Nuage (@nuagesg)
📌 Outram Park
💰 $9.80

Green and salty, just how I like my nuts. I've seen lots of buzz around Nuage, and this Pistachio Strawberry Tart, in particular, stands out to me.

The pistachios are really generous, being crusted all around the tart. The strawberries are fresh and sweet and the pistachio cream is nutty and strong. Such a great tart!

🥧 Lychee Tart
📍Wunderfolks (@wunderfolks)
📌 Multiple Outlets
💰 $8

Isnt she beautiful because damn what a tart. The lychee curd is smooth with a light lychee taste, and the little pink dollops of cream taste like strawberry cream yum yum. There are also bits of lychee flesh inside.

💕 Lychee Pop Tart ($7.90) (7.8/10)
Really refreshing with a nice fruity taste, its a bit lighter on the palate compared to the rest.

🌰 Sea Salt Nutella Tart ($6.90) (8.2/10)
Nutella lovers will enjoy this, the filling is basically creamy nutella and the tart is buttery.

🍋 Summer Lemon Tart ($7.90) (7.3/10)
Surprisingly this had a hint of saltiness and compared to other citrus tarts, its a lot milder in tartness. Not as sweet either.

🍪 Speculoos Cream Cheese Tart ($6.90) (9/10)
My favourite, the fillings are really gao as its all cookie butter and the cream cheese topping made it taste like a speculoos cheesecake!

🥧 Uji Matcha Nama Tart
📍Rise (@folksatrise)
📌 Potong Pasir
💰 $7.20

Matcha fans wont be disappointed by this tart. The matcha taste is quite gao and the texture of the filling is thick and rich. Its mixed with white chocolate so it may be a little too sweet for some, however.

Nubbad and the size is pretty big too.

🥧 Valrhona Chocolate Tart
📍Whiskit Bakery & Cafe (@whiskitcafe)
📌 Biopolis
💰 $8.50

I like my chocolate the way I like my men: rich, strong and thick. And Whiskit's Valrhona Chocolate Tart is just that. The cocoa taste is very stronk and the fillings are hella thicc. Just eating a quarter of this was enough to satisfy my dessert cravings.

The tart base is really crunchy, which i enjoyed. A really great chocolate tart!

🥧 Orh Nee Ondeh Tart
📍Whiskit Bakery & Cafe (@whiskitcafe)
📌 Biopolis
💰 $5

This tart comes with orh nee balls on top of a yam filling! The orh nee balls are really chewy and squishy, I was surprised because they SQUIRTED when I bit into them. Yeah they squirted. Squirtle. That's because they were actually filled with gula melaka syrup instead of the usual brown sugar dessicated coconut filling. Really interesting. Squirt.

The yam filling is really smooth and silky, it tastes like natural yam and its a bit on the savoury end. The tart base is super fragrant and crunchy, really good!

🥧 Mixed Fruit Tart
📍Wunderfolks (@wunderfolks)
📌 Multiple Outlets
💰 $8

You cant go wrong with a classic mixed fruit tart. The custard is smooth and silky while the fruits are fresh. The tart is on the softer side, would prefer if it was crunchier but overall a great tart!

he custard has this kinda oily texture to it and tastes very cheap. It's not bad but you can definitely tell that it's cheap. The cookie crust is kinda fragrant at the sides, but the bottom of the crust just tastes like a cheap cookie. The tart is still good for it's price, but definitely don't let its beauty throw you off 😂

💙 Blueberry
These blueberries are so sweet and fresh!! Not sour at all and all of them taste so premium!

🍓 Mixed Fruit
The fruits here are also sweet and not sour. Taste super fresh and delicious!

🥭 Mango
All the mango cubes are tender and sweet, seriously taste super high class.

Suuuper impressed by the level of quality of the fruits because all of them don't taste like they'd come out of a neighbourhood bakery!! I'd still recommend trying this if you don't mind cheap custard because the fruits are just too amazing. Plus for 3 for $5, pretty worth it imo!

The chocolate filling in this is nice! I suppose it's supposed to be eaten solid but mine was melted (which I prefer), was still really good. Chocolate was v rich and there were little hazelnuts inside too. Also loved the malt balls on top (that I burned in the oven hahaha)

This tart is probably best eaten fresh because the cookie base becomes soft and fragile if you put it in the fridge :( plus cant heat it up or itll turn into my puddle of chocolate goo, so eat it fresh! I dont really find this super unique but worth a try!

The taro filling is fragrant and yammy, not too sweet and the texture is soft and smooth. I like that these tarts use walnuts instead of ginko nuts because ginko nuts are pretty bland and don't add much flavour while walnuts provide a crunch and a nutty taste.

The crust is SOSO GOOD!! It's like a crumbly cookie and its the kind that just melts in your mouth. One of the best cookie crusts I've ever had. That, coupled with the amazing fillings, makes this the BEST taro tart in SG (to me at least).

Even though it's a little pricey, I'd 100% be getting this again! Too dang good to only have once. If you're a big fan of taro or orh nee, do try it out!

Finally, the last egg tart from Toast Box that I got. I think I liked this one the best, despite me being more excited for the mochi and salted egg ones.

The coconut filling in this was sweet and went really well with the egg custard. Somehow this was the only tart that I didn't find jelak, maybe it's cuz I already had 3 egg tarts prior and built some kind of jelak resistance :p

Other than that, not much different from the other 2. But if I were to get a toast box egg tart again, I'd probably get this one.
