Probably the best Portuguese egg tarts I've tried. Such tarts are best eaten hot and I was amazed by how crispy and buttery the pastry crust was! There were very interesting egg tart fillings as well and I got chocolate raspberry, yam sweet potato, coffee and earl grey. All were really good, and special mentions to the chocolate raspberry due to its thick rich ganash with citrus raspberry flavours, the aromatic real yam paste used in the yam sweet potato and the strong aromatic coffee flavours (but yet not too sweet). Each egg tart cost $3.30 - $3.50, and is even cheaper with #burpplebeyond ! Totally will get it again ๐Ÿ˜

The thing that immediately catches my attention with this egg tart is the generosity of the egg custard. I've had so many egg tarts that are as flat as my face, so receiving these gloriously deep egg tarts with so much filling is just ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

The egg custard is eggy and smooth, and the crust is flaky and crispy. A really good egg tart! At $2 it's a pretty reasonable price for a Portuguese egg tart but I'd probably get their unique flavours instead.

โญ Rating: 8.3/10 crispy eggs
๐Ÿค‘ worth the price: ok
๐Ÿฆ– would I buy again: I'd get the unique flavours

Singapore take on Portuguese egg tarts! Itโ€™s very creative with variety of sweets and savory. The original egg custard is smooth and silky; while their layered crust is flaky and crispy. They have desserty tarts flavor such as Earl Grey Black tea, Refreshing Mango, Valrhona Dark Chocolate Raspberry tart and more while for the savory options they have like the classic Ham & Mushroom, Chicken Rendang etc. I like how not too sweet the dessert versions are and how ingredients and flavors packed the savory version are.

Check out all the interesting egg tarts flavors they have!

This creative egg tart store @mil.eggtart started out as a home business but expanded to a quiet corner in Havelock square (near Chinatown). It specialises in artisan Portuguese egg tarts -- that means imaginative flavours encased in a flaky crust, rather than the crumbly crust that Singaporeans are used to.

I didn't get to try all of these flavours but the ones I tried were sort of one-dimensionally sweet. With all the unique flavours they promised, I thought the tarts could have more depth to them. What came through, though, was the incredibly flaky crust which is what I look out for in an egg tart!

There is quite a fair bit of hype over Mother-in-Law Egg Tart โ€” they had started off as a home-baker during the Circuit Break period, and now operates a kiosk within the basement of Havelock II retailing their egg tarts that comes in several flavours. Not all of the flavours listed were available when we passed by the kiosk around noon on a weekday afternoon; we found ourselves going for the flavours below:

- Signature (Original);
- 256 Crispy Layers Coffee;
- Refreshing Mango; and
- Earl Grey Black Tea

Couldnโ€™t do without trying the Signature (Original) since it is always best to try the egg tarts in the most original form โ€” we took a while to get from the kiosk to settle somewhere to enjoy the egg tarts; probably the reason why the pastry got a little stiffer than what we expected by the time we enjoyed them, though still maintaining its crispness. We could imagine how great these were when they are hot off the oven though; warm and crisp, with distinct layering in the pastry that isnโ€™t too greasy nor buttery โ€” all that whilst holding the suitably sweet and smooth egg curd within pretty well. Of the flavoured egg tarts, our favourite was the Earl Grey Black Tea โ€” garnished with a maple leaf over the top, it comes with a distinct hint of the said tea but also comes with a surprise, chewy brown sugar โ€œmochiโ€ layer within similar to that of boba in bubble tea. The Refreshing Mango is yet another one we liked; comes with mango popping balls that provided a burst of refreshing sweetness that was particularly alluring while the 256 Crispy Layers Coffee would do well with caffeine-addicts with its strong, punchy notes of coffee that very much dominates the entire tart.

Being a hole-in-the-wall sort of establishment, Mother-in-Law Egg Tart is no doubt an earnest startup that felt like as though it grew from being a pastime into a small business. While the original egg tarts are scrumptious, their effort in creating flavours unique to their brand is worth commending โ€” shows passion in the craft and their desire to serve the very best to their patrons. A spot that egg tart lovers should certainly give a try!
