Singapore take on Portuguese egg tarts! It’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 — 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

Couldn’t do without trying the Signature (Original) since it is always best to try the egg tarts in the most original form — 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 isn’t too greasy nor buttery — 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 — 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 “mochi” 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 — 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!

Tucked away in the basement of Havelock 2, this bakery dishes up fusion Portugese tarts made fresh daily by the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law duo! Choose from an assortment of 8 savoury and sweet flavours, ranging from Signature Egg Tart (Original) ($4), Brown Sugar Boba ($6.60) to Savoury Ham & Mushroom ($7) and Lychee Champagne ($6.60). Don't miss out on their top selling flavour — Earl Grey Black Tea ($6.60) and Yam & Purple Potato ($6.60) topped with gingko nuts.

No wonder this is @mil.eggtart top seller. Yam & Purple Potato flavour topped with Ginko Egg Tarts! I bought 2pcs and finished it within mins. I should have buy more 😋

They started as a home based business for around one year, before setting up their physical store at Havelock II.

Their store here was at the basement of Havelock II, which is pretty off access to the public outside. You will only know them either you have followed them or you were here passing by the basement.

I actually don’t know they have opened a physical store here until I was there for lunch, and upon this shop there.

A very small shop behind the pillar of the building. You really hard to spot them so you really need to go through every corner at the basement to find them.

They have lots of egg tarts selection which you could check it out on their website. They shared they will prepare most of them everyday here and you could possible walk in to purchase any of it. But to be safe, you could preorder online for delivery or self pickup here.

For the assorted box of 6 at $14.90, you can choose 6 different flavours of egg tarts. I gotten the original, yam & purple potato, savoury ham & mushroom, refreshing mango, lychee champagne and earl grey.

Among all of them, I prefer more for the yam & purple potato and original. Yam & purple potato really has it rich taste of both yam and purple potato mixing together, and topped with ginko nuts. The original of course featured the rich custard vanilla filling with signature flaky on the outside.

The rest was still refreshing especially for the lychee champagne and mango, but my colleague told me it feel like some artificial taste that they don’t really like.
