There are different kinds of egg tarts - which do you prefer? I've tried Hong Kong-ese* and Portuguese - I prefer it when the custard is less eggy and more sweet...and a brûlée'd top is always a bonus
*My friend uses Honky - is that awkward? So different than the North American slang
Anyways, Miss I. and I went on a little hunt for Egg Tarts in Toronto. I say little because we pretty much crossed the street from one place to another, but a hunt is a hunt! We hopped over to Cantanhede O Bairradino first:
We took a few to go and after a quick pop in the toaster oven they were ready for the Egg Tart Debate.
The Paris egg tart's crust was far better - the crust was much flakier. I preferred the filling too - it was sweeter and more savoury! \
Even after toasting it, the Cantahede Egg Tart's crust was still too chewy for my liking.
The Chinese bakery on Baldwin used to make very eggy-egg tarts but they haven't opened their doors for a long long time. What ever happened to them?
Egg Tart Escapades!
