I heard someone shout out in twitter few weeks back that KFC is gonna serve some YUMMY egg tarts.And its not the typical egg tarts but the Portugese egg tart type. And Im a fan-ATIC of Portuguese egg tarts.Often I will cross over the border just to have my fill-ups of creamy eggy fillings embodied in lightly wafer crust that just melts as u bite into its mouthful goodness.
This is where I get my favourite dose of portuguese egg tarts:
And so after torturous moments of drools (hehe!) and their raving reviews of the tarts by people in FB (thanks!), I decided to have a go at it…U see, Im not that fond of fast food (but I do give in to occasional “once-in-a-blue-moon” cravings).To me, my mind automatically visualise “fast food” with card board.Thus I fear that I might just sink my teeth into cardboards…but since the fans were happy about it, I guess, I can trust them,right? *winks
I was one of the first few to queue up early morning of Chinese New Year’s eve.I had to wait for 20 minutes because many were buying in boxes.I guess everyone is bringing this to the reunion table…
Nicely wrapped to commemorate the current festive season-Chinese New Year.$1.30 each piece.1 box=$7.50 for 6 (save 30cents)
Smell those eggy tarts..fresh from the oven…..Mmm..
Verdict: I ate them as soon as I get my hands on them.It was piping hot.It was YUM!4 stars..The fillings are not that thick/deep as my favourite Robin’s portuguese egg tarts and not as yummy creamy but sufficient enough to make me drool for more.I like its light layered crust.Overall,its good enough to prevent me from crossing the border…But u got to eat them when its warm…
Oh well, now for a stroll to Chinatown…
