Eat the tarts hot for the best experience

Fancy Delight sells deep dish egg tarts that come in a large variety of flavours, ranging from sweet to salty. Shaped like mini cups, Fancy Delight always beckons at me to come and buy a small box home.

I like their original and mushroom chicken flavour the most. The mushroom chicken flavour is savoury and has quite a lot of creamy filling that pairs well with the egg custard on top. However, I find their crust a tad wanting as it does not have the buttery flavour that characterizes a good exterior.

While the tarts from Fancy Delight are not the best tarts I’ve tasted, they are one of the few places that sell egg tarts of this variety. Note that when they are fresh out of the oven, they taste even better!

YESH

Fancy Delights absolutely delights my fancy egg tarts fantasies. They not only do such a great favour to my taste buds, they even come in such cutesy packaging, which is always a plus to our experience ain't it? :D

What really drew me to patronise them at the very start was the Green Tea flavoured egg tart. Anything Green Tea automatically gets my attention, and this KEPT my attention and love for it. It is such a refreshing flavour! The Kiwi flavour is definitely worthy of mention and worth your try too!

Although not my fave portugese egg tart, these from Fancy Delights make it up with my fave Green Tea flavour ^_^

spoilt for choice!

I've always been fond of egg tarts, and having them available in such a huge range of flavours seemed almost like a dream come true. I've tried many of them, and my favourites would be the assorted chocolate flavours for sure. When eaten warm, the chocolate just oozes onto your tongue - together with the silky smooth egg custard, it tastes amazing! I'm especially fond of the orange-chocolate flavour. The classic combination of flavours goes well with the mild egg custard.

Durian lovers can give the durian flavour a try. It was quite strong, and surprisingly good! Sadly though the price of these egg tarts are quite a bit higher than average, considering their small size which disappears after a bite or two.

One of the best around

Egg tarts. Ah, just the thought of the delightly creamy, silky egg custard sliding down my throat is enough to make my mouth water. And let’s not forget about the crust! No egg tart is complete without the right type of crust. This winning combination cannot easily be found, but I’m fairly certain that Fancy Delight is pretty darn close.

Fancy Delight’s egg tarts definitely are not your conventional egg tarts. They are shaped like little cups – very similar to that of kueh pie tee. The adorable shape might attract you to try out your first egg tart from Fancy Delight, but it’s the taste that keeps you wanting more.

The egg tarts here are incredibly good. The taste and texture of the soft-as-tofu egg custard complements the crust perfectly, and the shape of the tart keeps you from making a mess, which is a major plus for messy eaters like me. Feeling adventurous? Try out their other flavours! My favourites are chocolate, durian and pepper chicken. The wide range of flavoured egg tarts definitely sets Fancy Delight apart from its competitors, so even if you’re not a big fan of egg tarts, this place is absolutely worth a try. Yesss, at $1.40 a piece, the egg tarts here are pretty expensive, but hey, the occasional treat never harmed anybody, right?

You're in for a treat!

I love the variety of egg tarts offered here! The egg tarts aren't exceptionally scrumptious but they're still pretty decent and the variety available definitely compensates for their ordinary tastes.

I prefer the savoury tarts (mushroom chicken) to the sweet ones though as those are more original. Surprisingly, the chicken, mushroom, curry and 'non-dessert' like foods actually goes well in their egg tarts.

I also like the fact that their egg tarts are vertically-enhanced compared to traditional egg tarts. I feel like I'm biting into a well when I'm eating them, a deep well where there is always more goodness where that came from. The enjoyment lasts longer and the egg tarts are overall more fulfilling as compared to those in dim sum restaurants which can be finished off in a mere two bites!

Stick to a few, ignore the rest.

More and more in the F&B business are trying their hand at coming up with novel flavour combos to draw in the crowd and, while some are successful, a great many have failed. Fancy Delight is one of those bold, adventurous joints, seeing as how they have at least a few chicken-flavoured tarts which, even at their mere mention, is enough to put off my appetite. And indeed, my hyper intuition about food is as reliable as ever. Taking a bite out of those chicken-flavoured tarts--whether pepper or curry or mushroom or whatever else--is like taking a bite out of a regular sweet egg tart and a chicken pie, or curry puff, simultaneously. Needless to say, the resulting taste, as I recall it, was quite close to repugnant; the flavours just don't gel well together, and are about as incongruous as those of bacon and ice cream.

Their best, in my opinion, are some of the sweet flavours like apple cinnamon, strawberry, and double chocolate. One reason why I don't quite enjoy the egg tarts at Fancy Delight is because the egg custard is generally bland and it can be quite a chore when you get down to the middle, which is nothing but custard and more custard. So sweet, fruity toppings like strawberry may help by adding an extra dimension of flavour.

But, having said that, I'm not at all keen on their tarts because, like most other egg tarts I've eaten, the custard is bland and characterless, not much different from many egg tarts. I actually think that the traditional Chinese egg tarts you get in some (only a small handful) neighbourhood bakeries taste better.

Heaven in a crusted cup

I'm not a fan of Egg Tarts, or rather, I was not a fan of Egg Tarts. I had the impression that they are sweet and messy with the crumbly pastry flakes dropping onto your lap whenever you bit into one.

Until my brother bought a batch of Egg Tarts from Fancy Delight home. He had a dozen in assorted flavors; original, durian, mushroom chicken, blueberry, kaya, cheese and a few other which I can't remember. The cheese egg tart was literally brought to my face before I grudgingly let my brother stuff my face with it.

The neat little package was wolfed down in less than 5 minutes. The crust was just saltish and oily enough, the egg filling's sweetness complemented the crust superbly, the crust didn't crumble all over the place as I expected.

I've been an egg tart convert ever since.

Refreshing idea for an egg tart.

When they came out into the market, they were popular with individuals whom were intrigued by having savories in the traditional egg custard tarts. They also did something different int he shape of their tarts, rather than the normal ufo like shapes, theirs came in a cute, uniform cup and also in different tart crust colours.

People like me who are mainly attracted by the aestheic appeal would definitely be attracted. Then the ball would be in their court to use the taste to attract permanent customers. When i got mine, still hot from the oven, i was pretty ecstatic, nothing beats a hot pastry fresh from the oven. i couldn't wait and bit into it, the soft tart crust crumbled into my mouth like sand and filled my mouth was eggy custardy fluid. Then came bursts of hot chocolatey syrup, when the chocolate chips touched my tongue. Wow.

A place to visit again, would be lovely as a gift too!

Time for a treat!

Ever heard of Kiwi egg tarts? What about curry chicken egg tarts? Yes, they do exist! They are a little different from the traditional ones but equally good, or even better! I love that their crust isn’t flaky and it’s unlikely to make a mess out of it.

Cost wise, it is slightly on the high side despite being smaller than conventional egg tarts that are usually priced at a dollar.

I still prefer their original flavour, although their other unique flavours are a greater value for money. However, the tarts are not as sweet as I would prefer it to be. Nevertheless, it is still tasty and definitely worth a try!

unique egg tarts

Fancy Delight caught my attention with its many different flavors of egg tarts, ranging from strawberry to kiwi to chocolate to banana. I love egg tarts especially those with lots of custard and less tart. Fancy Delight's egg tarts fit the bill exactly. Instead of the usual egg tart size, Fancy Delight's egg tarts look almost like a cupcake.

So far, I have tried many different flavors and my favorite has got to be the strawberry egg tart. Not only is the egg custard strawberry flavored, it has strawberry jam oozing out of the tart too. I guess not many people can appreciate a mixture of egg custard with strawberry but to each its own. I personally loved it. Though it is rather expensive, it is ok to pamper oneself once in a while with sweet savory treats.
