After the flavoured croissant craze, Chef Pang Kok Keong is at it again. Inspired from a recent trip to Tokyo, he launches a range of baked cheese tarts at Antoinette. Made from a mix of two cheeses and a flaky pastry cup (using French butter no less), each cheese tart is rich, creamy yet balanced. I didn't feel sick even after gobbling down a few of these babies. Moohehe.
The five flavours are Matcha, Salted Caramel, Salted Yolk, Vanilla and Grand Cru Chocolate. I tried all of them except for the chocolate one. My personal favourites are the Matcha, which had a pleasant bitter taste of Japanese green tea, and the sunny, timeless Vanilla. I didn't quite take to the Salted Yolk one though. It was too subtle and hardly arousing.
I moost give special mention to the pastry crust which was light and had a very good butter flavour that stood out in the mid palate.
Prices range from $2.60 to $3.
It is advisable to consume these cheese tarts within an hour of purchase but I doubt they will last that long. Moohaha.
Thank you Antoinette and Gastro Sense for the samples.
