Quick post! This Chinese New Year, Emicakes is giving away 5 containers of soft and yummy pineapple tarts to budgetpantry’s readers! Emicakes is known for their durian cakes (and character cakes!), but who knew that their pineapple tarts are also pretty good? The not-so-sweet pineapple jam is enveloped in soft pastry, and they also have a durian version which I’ve not tried. The pineapple tarts retail at $20.60 per tin and the durian tarts are $35.60 per tin. They now have some kind of a deal going on with group-buy sites for $11.90 and $18.90 respectively.
Disclaimer: Not a sponsored advertorial. I’m writing this because I love Hougang Nonya Kueh’s yummy bakes, the people behind them, their 30-year tradition and the passion they have in continuing their family business! One of my friends offered me a pineapple tart on Wednesday, and after popping one in my mouth, I demanded that she show me the box! The box was nothing fancy.. just a regular old-school plastic container with red lid (no printing of shop name, even!), but the pineapple tart was something else.
