Yesterday, I went to ION to get my hands on the BAKE’s cheese tarts but they were sold out when I got there!(I went there at 5pm) So disappointed, I walked by Bread Society and heard the pastry chef shouting,”Cheese Tarts with Italian cheese, 4 for $6″. My eyes riveted to the tarts. Next thing I know, I was holding two boxes of tarts queuing to pay.
I got 4 salted egg cheese tarts and 4 original cheese tarts. I had never heard about Bread Society selling cheese tarts but it’s probably because they wanted to maintain their market share with BAKE’s new shop in close proximity.
Now to the tarts, because that’s what you are here for. The crust was very aromatic and buttery. The bite produced a sound as the pastry was so thin and hard. My teeth sunk into the cream cheese before the pastry crumbs blended with the zesty and creamy filling. For the salted egg filling, it was a tad too runny and the tart broke apart easily. It had a savory flavour to complement the subtle sour in the cream cheese. Definitely a plethora of flavours trying to compete for my attention.
I feel that the cheese tarts here are not “cheesy” enough. The cream to cheese ratio in the in filling is probably 2:1. The tarts will be great for a party or a mid-day desert. I would recommend the original tart only. 1 is for $2, 4 for $6. All flavours are the same price. They only sell original and salted egg cheese tarts.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a great day!
