I’ve had a long time obsession with Portuguese egg tarts. Don’t get them confused with the egg tarts you normally find at dim sum. These are a little bit different and in my opinion, a whole lot better.
Its like a creme brulee but in a flaky tart instead of a boring ramekin. I’m still on the search for bakeries in Southern California that make these delicious tarts. In the meantime, I’ll keep experimenting until I make the perfect tarts.
A couple years ago, I visited my friend in Taiwan and ate too many egg tarts for my own good. I probably gained more than a handful of pounds during the short week I was there. Taiwan has so much good food and my friend made sure to make me try all of it. And the one thing I miss more than anything are the egg tarts from KFC. Yes, Kentucky Fried Chicken has egg tarts (unbelievable mochi and brown syrup egg tarts- google it for images). Too bad KFC in the United States only serves chocolate cake and apple pie for dessert.
