It only takes two main components to form the scrumptious whole. There's the in-season Spanish clementines represented as a marmalade and fresh, bursting-point-juicy segments, plus a fabulous crisp "sugar dough" pastry base.
It sounds like the simplest of formulae but that doesn't lessen the ability it has to stun.
Was looking through Burpple's Hot 100 and realized I haven't tried Tarte by Cheryl Koh (gasps!). I'm glad that I finally have, cause while pricy, it's definitely worth a try! 😋
Of course the cherries were a no brainer. On it's own, it was a little tart and made me pucker up with each piece, but coupled with the luscious cream and buttery base, it took all my effort to stop me from inhaling the whole thing. 😂 (Behind is the houjicha tart which was creamy and divine 👌)
You'll definitely take some time to pick which tart to try when you're here. Settled on cherry (seasonal tart) and hojicha. The cherry was very refreshing while the hojicha had a very rich and fragrant taste. Loved both, but the hojicha was definitely more unique. Definitely worth a try if you're in the area!
$9 for a tart this tiny, it's not longer just about watching your waistline! Tried the Hojicha Creme Brulee tart & the Pistachio Frangipane tart (as shown here). A small price to pay if your dreams haven't been so sweet lately.
Her flagship store: Tarte by Cheryl Koh at Shaw Centre serves one of most delectable tart desserts one palette could crave for.
We had the Tarte Bourdaloure($9) & Hojicha creme Brulee($9) for desserts, accompanied with Earl Grey Latte ($6.50) & Chocolate Mint Latte($6.50) from Caveau Bar. It has certainly elevated our afternoon tea experience.
I finally understand why the tarts here are spoken of in hushed tones of reverence. This seasonal cherry one was heavenly. Love how the sweet fruit, chilled vanilla custard cream and crisp buttery base came together in supreme perfection.
Helmed by Les Amis Restaurant's pastry chef and Asia's Best Pastry Chef 2016 Cheryl Koh, Tarte is a crowd favourite pastry shop in town. You'll find no fancy, over-the-top decorations here, just "the best version of the simplest desserts". There are two tart sizes available, with seasonal flavours appearing occasionally. If you know the particular flavour the birthday girl or boy wants, call ahead to pre-order a large tart ($38 for 16cm). If not, order a good array of the smaller tarts ($9 for 8cm) to share. Go for the best-selling Pistachio ($9) — velvety smooth, creamy filling full of nutty goodness encased in a thin but sturdy buttery tart shell, with a garnish of crushed pistachios. Also look out for the seasonal tarts like the Tasmanian Cherry, Alphonso Mango and the luscious Passionfruit. If you're planning to swing by for a particular flavour, though, it's worth calling ahead, as they run out pretty quickly.
*38cm tarts have to be ordered two days in advance

The luscious mini melon balls have a sweet, disarmingly sincere juiciness that never borders on watery, whilst elsewhere the milky panna cotta wobbles with a tightrope walker's confident steadiness and the softly firm crust surrenders unyieldingly to the side of your fork without crumbling. 4.2/5

There are times when a whole cake's just too much for a celebration, and that's when these divine pastries come in. These are also perfect when you're looking for something light(er) but still a crowd-pleaser.
They only make a few flavours for the regular-sized (16cm) ones daily compared to the full range of small (8cm) tarts, so make sure you pre-order ahead if you have a specific flavour in mind!
You can request for a message to be scribbled on a chocolate disc when you pre-order, but a DIY two-tiered stack works too, especially when the two flavours are complementary. 👌🏼
I heart all her tarts! The dark cherry and pistachio are my favorites. Love love love!
lump, crunchy, sweet cherries, a delicate crème patissiere, buttery crisp shortcrust pastry — what's there not to like? This seasonal tart is one I'm always looking forward to; so guys, now that it's out, have at it before it's gone again!
Looks nothing like the messy American sandwich, but trust me this delicate and dainty dessert packs quite the punch. Imagine the gao-est peanut butter you've tasted, presented as the lightest creamy mousse, atop a nutty frangipane/feuilletine-like base and a crisp pâte sucre so so sinful, but so so addictive. I like how the "jelly" component comes n the shape of fresh, surprisingly sweet raspberries, that stopped it all from getting too heavy and jelak.
Settling for nothing less than the best for my tart fix. Haven't been there in the longest time, and I'm mega happy that the tarts are still 💪🏻💪🏻👌🏻👌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 absolutely in love with the Apple, a newer flavour I believe cause I've never had it before!! Gonna go all out and call it the BEST apple tart I've ever had.
