8 Best Egg Tarts in Singapore That Are Worth The Calories

Honolulu Egg Tarts

There are many versions of egg tarts across the world, but the rendition that resonates best with us Singaporeans would probably be the Hong Kong-style egg tart. These rich and creamy egg custards encased within flaky, buttery pastry shells are mad delicious and best eaten lukewarm.

It is something that can be eaten for breakfast, as a midday snack, or even supper. We are always up for a good egg tart.

From Honolulu, Tong Heng Confectionery to Leung Sang Hong Kong Pastries, here is our guide to the 8 Best Egg Tarts in Singapore that are worth all the damn calories.

Canton Paradise Egg Tart


Canton Paradise’s mini egg tarts (S$4.20 for three) are delightfully light and is one dish we would always order when we dine in the casual restaurant. We love how well its soft, velvety custard complements the crispy, flaky pastry.

Song Garden Egg Tart


As far as egg tarts go, it is more than just the yellowish custard that defines a really good one. The short-crust pastry that encases it is just as important—if not, more. Here at Song Garden, the Mini Egg Tarts (S$4.20++ for 3 pieces) are far better than your traditional flaky egg tarts. Buttery, crumbly and filled with a luscious egg filling, each bite will transport you to heaven.

What we particularly loved about this was the fact that it was small enough to eat in one bite, which for one, does away with the nuisance of crumbs falling everywhere, and allows you to taste every single component at one go.
