7 Best Egg Tart In Singapore

The tastiest egg tarts in Singapore are hard to come by. As one of Singapore’s most popular dim sum meals, we’ve developed a highly discriminating palette for it, and only the best quality dim sum will make the cut.

There are two varieties of egg tarts for the uninitiated: the Hong Kong egg tart and the Portuguese egg tart. The custard filling of Hong Kong egg tarts is smooth and equally yellow, whereas the filling of Portuguese egg tarts is slightly caramelized and has puffed-up, blackened patches.

The cookie crust, which is solid like a pumpkin pie crust, and the flaky crust, which is layered and crumbly, are both available for Hong Kong egg tarts. Portuguese egg tarts, on the other hand, feature a thick flaky crust that resembles the outer layers of a croissant.

To help you locate the pastries that will transport you back to your vacations in Hong Kong and Macau, Singapore’s Finest has compiled a list of the finest egg tarts in Singapore that you should try:

Madeleine’s Original Portuguese Egg Tarts entered the fray in early 1998 at the height of the craze. Madeleine’s opened the first modest franchise outlet in Singapore at Holland Village and as soon as the doors of this shop opened, snake-like queues began forming outside for a taste of this original Portuguese egg tart. Expectedly, dozens of egg tart shops began to sprout around Singapore. Madeleine’s had outlets at Far East Plaza, Tanjong Katong, Ang Mo Kio Central, and Peace Centre. Among the dozen copy versions that opened in Singapore, only three sold the original Macau product.

Portuguese egg tarts made by a Singaporean

Despite the fact that they sells Portuguese egg tarts, Robbie claims that he just sells generic egg tarts. “I’m not going to declare my tarts are Portuguese.” they might irritate Portuguese people! (Laughs) they didn’t even taste any Macau or Portuguese egg tarts. My wife gave me the recipe, and I think it’s delicious, so I started selling it. “It’s as simple as that”. “There is no such thing as genuineness.” As long as it’s pleasant! ”

Do not leave Whampoa market without trying these amazing tarts. The inside is similar to the consistency of crème brûlée but with a perfect amount of sugar. The crust is baked to perfection and the layers break wonderfully in your mouth. – Juan David Rueda Pinzon

I adore egg tarts of all kinds, whether they’re flaky Portuguese tarts with a silky smooth egg custard inside and blistered cap, or sweeter cookie-crusted varieties. This palm-sized delicacy is the ideal pick-me-up for me because it’s small enough that indulging in one, or two, doesn’t feel too bad.

That’s why they were so excited to come across Mother-In-Law Egg Tart at last year’s Circuit Breaker. The family-run firm used to be a tiny home-based operation that produced Portuguese tarts in a limited number of flavors. They’ve now opened a real store at Havelock 2 in Clarke Quay, with more than seven unique tastes to choose from. The Portuguese egg tarts are prepared fresh every day in the specialized store’s back kitchen, which also acts as a convenient pick-up location for online pre-orders.

They’re traditional Cantonese confections have been made with only the finest ingredients for generations. Their mooncakes are well-known for their authentic taste of the past. They’re one of the few bakeries in Singapore to make their fresh lotus paste by hand with 100 percent pure lotus seeds and no preservatives, and they use it to fill mooncakes made in the same traditional wooden molds that they’re used more than 80 years ago at the original Sago Street bakery in Chinatown. Their mooncakes are still sold in stringed brown paper bags, exactly like their forefathers did in pre-war Singapore.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are egg tarts called?

Custard tarts, egg tarts, flans pâtissiers, and egg custard tarts are all names for a pastry that consists of an exterior pastry crust filled with egg custard and baked. This dessert is made differently in Portugal, England, and France, using various spices, ingredients, and/or different types of dough.

What is the difference between Portuguese and Macau egg tart?

Although the phrases Portuguese Custard Tarts and Macau Egg Tarts are sometimes used interchangeably, there are major distinctions. Pasteis de Nata (or pastel de Nata) are sweeter, less eggy, and occasionally sprinkled with cinnamon than American custard tarts.

Is egg tart sweet or Savoury?

The custard tart appears to establish itself as a sweet dish with cream, eggs, milk, and sugar. Nutmeg becomes quite fashionable in England [around that time], and you’ll see a little nutmeg scraped on top of everything from then on.
