Ipoh Hong Kee Egg Tarts

16 03 2008

I went to Ipoh… early one morning and drove all the way to get the Cockman egg tarts. The first thing I saw was there are so so many people dere waiting.. i was like oh gosh.. iTs a long q. A steady stream of customers, haphazardly parked their vehicles by the roadside, hop down and queue up for the pastries.

I bought myself half a dozen egg tarts and another half dozen for my friends at RM 1.20 per piece. It might sounds rather expensive (especially for the locals) but when I held it in my hand, I practically felt like they were really hefty. Instead of plain egg with sugar, the proprietor also add in fresh milk to the egg mixture for a creamier, smoother texture. Maybe that explains the weight.

I was impressed with the texture of the crust too, it doesn’t crumble and break when you bite it and the yellowish egg custard was just nice, not overly sweet, with sufficient eggy aroma.. it is better than some Penang egg tarts.. em…not wasting my time to dere have a try of it

Wong Kok Pasteries

An Egg Tart is a typical fare of Hong Kong cha chaan teng. Hong Kong-style egg tarts have two main varieties, divided according to the type of the outermost layer or crust: Butter Flavoured Shortcrust Pastry & Puff Pastry. The Puff Pastry type has an extremely crisp texture and is regarded as the most traditional and correct form of of egg tart by food critics. Today’s egg tarts come in many variations due to Hongkongers’ eagerness to try almost anything. These include egg white tarts, milk tarts, honey-egg tarts, ginger juice-flavored egg tarts, chocolate tarts and even “birds’ nest” tarts. Besides the egg tart, other pasteries like Pork Tark and other tarts are yummy as well

It has been my favorite ever since i found this Wong KOk.. the Food is not just superb.. and u cant believe that all he pastries sold off very fast not even 7 pm… wau.. i mosli cant find wat i want unless i went earli morning to grab them. Delicious .. yum yum
