Buttery flaky crust filled with smooth egg custard that's not too sweet. Must try along this street. Just at the back door is another street art that one can take photos too.

Best egg tart - flaky crust, the filling is just the right consistency and taste. Not too sweet and none of the bright yellow artificial colouring used by some other egg tart makers.

We tried one salted egg and two egg tarts (total 6.75). Wasn’t bad, but for our taste buds nothing special. You wouldn’t miss anything if you don’t go. If this was helpful in any way, please leave a like.

Egg tart crust is very crispy, crumbles in your mouth. Egg custard is also sufficiently flavorful and tender. Rest of the food there is meh. Ask the right person and they'll give you a free sample.
