Tarts. Apart from egg tarts, I can’t exactly remember when the last time I had them was. Fruit tarts to be exact. The one with fresh fruits, custard and cream layered one after another on a pastry finished with a glaze to give a beautiful sparkling / shine effect.
The ones offered by confectionary shops are usually the small pathetic looking tiny ones. They might look good but taste wise, is rather disappointing. Usually, it is either the pastry is too thick or there are too much cream / custard filling in it. Disappointing.
But, now that I’ve tried the tarts from this shop, it’s safe to say that there’s still hope in getting good fruit tarts out there. Not wanting to say it’s something totally new / refreshing or it’s amazingly delicious, at least they were better than the ones that usually I see from those bakery shops.
The Mango Tart was something special compared to others. The slight sour-ish cream cheese filling coupled with mangoes makes the tart all more appetizing that it looks to be. Now if only they reduce the amount of (fresh) cream they used, that would be prefect.
As for the Chocolate Banana Fruit Tart, there’s nothing special about it. A couple slices of bananas and some cocoa powder on it, it’s forgettable (sounds familiar, eh…).
Suffice to say that I still go for the Mango Tart on my next trip… or maybe something else. Except for the Chocolate Banana Fruit Tart.
