Egg tarts are one of my favorite foods. Okay, I am a fan of pineapple tarts too, but let’s not get into that right now.
Knowing how much I love these egg tarts, my hubby bought me a box of SIX when he was out for lunch last Friday. He surprised me with them after work š My hubby and I usually have a hot date every Friday lunch, but last Friday, I had a meeting that lasted through lunch, so I had to forgo our date. My hubby went downtown for lunch with his buddies and stopped by a shop that was famed for its egg tarts. A quaint little shop on Cintra Street that had been featured in the papers before for its exceptional tasting egg tarts, they were priced at an unbelievable 80 cents each only.
Well actually if you hadn’t realized, egg tarts come in 3 different varieties. The first type is the kind that comes in a biscuit crust, thin and kind of hard. The second type is the egg tart that is made with a pastry crust, flaky and layered. The third variety is what we call the Portuguese egg tart. This is an egg tart with a more custard-like filling. My favorite is actually the second type, but the ones my hubby bought belongs under Type No.1. No biggie. Tastes just as good. Sinfully sweet, but that’s what makes it ohsogood. Me, egg tart queen will like the tarts anyhow they are served. And for the record, all tarts were completely finished by Sunday. š
