Tarte by Cheryl Koh

1237 Wishlisted
~$10/pax
One of life’s greatest gastronomic indulgences can be found at Tarte by Cheryl Koh, a spin-off by the Les Amis Group with Les Amis restaurant’s pastry chef Cheryl Koh, which opened in April 2015. In a span of a year, chef Cheryl was awarded ‘Asia’s Best Pastry Chef’ in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards in 2016. Emerging from a tiny den along the quaint corner street of the Shaw Centre, this retail concept is as straightforward as its moniker – selling artisanal tarts and other confectionaries baked from scratch all day with only the best available ingredients sourced from around the world that are rare to find in Singapore. Talking about her inspiration behind Tarte, she says, “I want guests to enjoy the tarts as I would serve them at Les Amis restaurant: freshly made with good ingredients and best fruits of the season. I aim to make the best version of the simplest desserts. I focus mainly on tarts because of the great combination of pastry, flavours, colours and textures.” In 2018, Tarte by Cheryl Koh expanded its operations to include a cosy dining area. This allows the team to push the envelope when it comes to crafting guest’s dining experience. With an expanded menu list, coffee and tea is no longer an afterthought. Instead, it plays a vital supporting role in elevating the experience and taste profiles of the desserts.

Tarte by Cheryl Koh is really one of its kind.
Tarts are based on whichever fruit that it’s in season.

The white peach was plump, succulent and juicy.
It seems that the entire fruit was used to bake this tart.

The vanilla bean cream blends well with the tanginess and sweetness of the fruit.

The base of the tart was thin and crisp. One can taste the freshness out of every bite!

If you’re a tart lover, DO NOT GIVE THIS A MISS.

Don’t be a bitch, give this 🍑 tart a try!

Adorned with beautifully charred meringue and a lone gold flake, the lemon meringue tart ($8) was deceptively energetic. The lemon filling delivered a zesty punch, and its viscosity mingled with the fluffy meringue and tart quite harmoniously.

That sourness might prove too feisty for some even though I enjoyed it.

The baked cheese tart ($8) was also quite charming. Once a red hot local trend, cheese tarts are now relegated to scant outlets of copycats. it’s interesting to see a luxe take on it.

I enjoyed this leopard-spotted and mildly sweet cheese and its starkly superior tart base. Still, with little improvements besides craftsmanship, it’s hard to justify the price.

The dark chocolate tart ($10) was a tart worthy of my namesake of indulgentism. Indulgence in spades as the rich milk chocolate smoothly layered over caramel and macadamia.

A tasteful richness but not overly extravagant, in line with the understated elegance that seemed to pervade Tarte by Cheryl Koh’s creations.

Tarte’s underlying principle is elegance and letting the ingredients speak for themselves, and it shows.

The classic pairing of pandan coconut tart ($8) was pushed to its zenith with a deftly negotiated breadth of fragrance and sweetness.

The naturally complementary nature of the two ingredients shone with a simple and balanced richness on the palate. The buttery and flawlessly-textured tart base then bolstered it.

TULAMEEN RASPBERRY TART ($11)
One of the best raspberry varieties, these delicious Tulameen raspberries from the Vendée region in France are highly favoured for their distinctive sweet aromatic flavour and size.

Available at @tartebycherylkoh
Wanted mango tart but this was the only fruit tart left. As I was to leave, saw a tray of cherry and mango tarts which the staffs offered to another male customer after me. When I went up to the counter, the staff replied that those were not available. Maybe I’m not eye candy. That’s why.

Kind of left with a taste of bitterness.
