- Madeleine’s Original Portuguese Egg Tarts
Look at the caramelised tops of these golden goodies! We heard that the pandan flavoured ones are really unique and delicious, but they always sell out fast.

These diamond-shaped beauties are my best friends~ Filled with soft and mildly sweetened egg custard, Tong Heng Confectionery’s Egg Tart is one of my family’s favourite and we would often get a box of six when we pass their outlet at the basement of Jurong Point. Their signature buttery crust resembles a flaky puff pastry yet it is slightly crumbly like a short crust. A sensible shape, the distinctive design allows you to start as well as end with the nice crunch of the pastry and wobbly custard in every bite. Priced at $1.70 per piece, it isn’t cheap but well worth it after you get a whiff of the eggy-buttery fragrance and especially so when they are warm and straight out of the oven. #burpple #burpplesg #sgfoodie #pastries #tarts #foodagram #sgfoodies #sgfood #foodsg #tart #foodspotting #foodiesg #throwback #8dayseat #eatoutsg #eggtart #iweeklyfood #sgeats #sgeatout #igsg #sgig #eggcustard #tonghengeggtart #eggtarts #tonghengconfectionary
2. Tong Heng Confectionery
Their iconic diamond shapes are famous among egg tart lovers here in Singapore, and many claim these are one of, if not the best here. The pastry is light and fluffy, which we love, and the egg custard has a lovely fragrant aroma.

3. Leung Sang Hong Kong Pastries
Another famous heritage brand from Hong Kong, the traditional pastries here are the ones to buy as gifts if you want to impress your granny, your parents or your in-laws. Their most well-known item is their egg tarts; creamy and buttery, these are the best a traditional recipe can offer.

4. Fancy Delight
Featuring some eclectic flavours such as chicken and mushroom, kiwi, strawberry and even durian, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Fancy Delight. The tall cup shape of the tarts also makes these special as the filling seems more generous.
Fancy Delight is at: #03-K21 Nex, 23 Serangoon Central.
5. Imperial Treasure
Known for serving up fine Chinese fare, Imperial Treasure also dishes up some really good egg tarts. If you dine there, be sure to save space in your stomach for one (or more) of these, you will not regret!

6. 8Tarts & Pastries
Exciting flavours await you here – try out the jackfruit or durian ones for a local twist, or go for chocolate or cheese if you are not so adventurous. But do try the original flavour; just one is not enough!
8Tarts & Pastries is at: Tampines Mall, Tel: 6782 1972.
7. Red Star Restaurant
One of our favourite dim sum restaurants, Red Star is an old school (they still use tradional push carts) many dim sum connoisseurs adore. They are also known for their very yummy egg tarts, which are flavourful and flaky creations not to be missed.
Red Star Restaurant is at: #07-23 54 Chin Swee Rd, Tel: 6532 5266.
8. Crystal Jade
Moist and buttery with a super creamy filling, we love that the Crystal Jade egg tarts are slightly smaller in size so you can pop the whole thing into your mouth. Warning: These are highly addictive!
Crystal Jade is at: Various outlets.
9. Ng Kim Lee Confectionery
Another old school bakery to check out for their egg tarts. The diamond-shaped ones are moreish and have a nice bite thanks to the thicker pastry, and the traditional Portuguese ones are simply pure pleasure.
Ng Kim Lee Confectionery is at: 4 Chun Tin Road, Tel: 6466 3515.
Some egg tart purists might disagree with this choice, but we must say we were pleasantly surprised when we first tasted KFC’s egg tarts – they are really comparable to handmade ones in terms of taste and texture, and a fantastic choice if you do not want to travel far to satisfy your egg tart craving.
KFC is at: Various outlets.
