Foodie Friday: Egg Tart

Egg Tart, or dan tat: circular pastries characterized by an egg custard middle and pie-like crust on the outside

 Egg tarts are, hands down, my favorite part of dim sum. I was distraught when I missed it twice in a row this past Chinese New Year’s. These delicious egg pastries come in two kinds:

-Original: A thicker, heavy crust that surrounds the soft inside 
-Crispy: A delicate crust that flakes off at the slightest touch (my preferred version)

If you’re ever in the Hawaii area, you can find the delectable treat here.

  1. Egg tarts are da bomb! Light, not overly sweet. Yum!

  2. I just learned that dan tat means yummy from Lara Britt. Didn’t realize the custards come in 2 kinds. I learn something every day.

  3. Or maybe a third kind – the Portuguese dahn tat?
