Small bites

Had a couple of good snacks this weekend that are worth sharing 😀

Egg tarts from Tong Heng at 285 south bridge road (chinatown area)

They sell a huge variety of traditional pastries here.

The egg custard within is wobbly and not too sweet. The flaky pastry encasing it is a tad oily (but that’s inevitable for puff pastry) and very very thin. In fact, I would say that it is just sufficient to hold everything together. This is probably one of the best egg tarts I have had in Singapore! Plus there is a sitting area in the shop for you to enjoy a traditional bowl of red bean/almond etc soup with the egg tarts. Two grannies brought their grandchildren there for tea and the kids were happily slurping the soup and eating their egg tarts.

I love the fact that food brings families and friends together (:

Kueh Pie Tee

My family loves the popiah and kueh pie tee from my cosy corner in coronation. The braised bang kuang (chinese sweet turnip) and carrot filling is so tasty and delicious! No popiah on sundays tho 😦
