Breadtalk’s Cheese Tarts

Since the cheese tart craze began this year, cheese tarts can be found almost everywhere.

That being said, as a foodie, I had to try BreadTalk’s take on the cheese tart.

Their cheese was runny and creamy, very similar to President’s cream cheese spread. The pastry was thin and surprisingly full of flavour.

We had the original flavour ($2.40 per tart).

I urge you to try this as their cheese tarts are unique in texture and flavour.

Prima Deli Salted Yolk Lava Cheese Tarts (Vivocity)

After BAKE cheese tarts came to Singapore and the ridiculous queues that accompanied them, many bakeries have caught onto the trend. From Breadtalk to Bread Society and now even Prima Deli are selling cheese tarts like hot cakes. The flavours vary from the original to salted egg.

I was at Vivocity and stumbled upon the cheese tarts from Prima Deli. They are bigger in size and looked more “baked” on the top than most cheese tarts from other bakeries. 

Therefore, I submitted to temptation. I got the salted yolk lava ones ($2.80 per tart) only as I felt that they are pretty much the original ($2.40 per tart) with filling.

They basically pour the salted yolk filling in the empty pastry before stacking a layer of cheese cake on top. The cheese here is dry and fluffy. I found the cheese and pastry quite substandard. However, I like the salted egg filing which was thick and flavourful.

I would recommend you to try this at least once. The salted yolk filling here is definitely better than Bread Society’s.The taste may be subjective.

Bread Society’s Cheese Tarts (ION Orchard)

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!
