Tong Kee Butter Egg Tarts - Damansara Utama

Been really busy of late and thought it was good time to put up this short post. I had stumbled upon Tong Kee's latest outlet in Damansara Utama one evening while driving past the area. My heart skipped a beat and I did a little dance in my car (sitting down of course!) when I realised I could now get my favourite egg tarts easily with the newest outlet being so near to me now. The last time I had delicious egg tarts was when I was good food hunting in Ipoh and had stopped by Choy Kee in Simee Market. Tong Kee's egg tarts have always been my favourite though...

Tong Kee TK Bread & Tarts

Butter Egg Tarts
Butter Egg Tarts - since I didn't take any photos at the outlet itself (I had thought that bakeries usually don't allow photography but seems I was mistaken about this outlet as KampungBoyCityGal was able to take some when they found this outlet last month too!), I packed three of these yummy babies home and did the photoshooting later.

I personally prefer the butter egg tarts (RM1.50 each) over the original RM(1.30). I find it more fragrant. The crispy and flaky pastry isn't brittle but yet distinctively layered. A bite into one of these; the pastry and wonderful custard ensemble, would stop the clock for a split second before one devours the whole egg tart up in glee (at least it did for me and JC!)....hahaha! I discovered this place in mid Nov and have been back several times though I have not made any visits in the month of December. They were giving out 20% discount off the egg tarts then (not sure if it applied to all the other pastries/bread because I have only been buying the butter egg tarts!). I wonder if the promo is still on in December. Only one way to find out....time for another visit! :o)

worldwindows said...

I wonder how these shops survived paying high rentals on the ground floor? RM1.50 is consider not expensive. Good snacks .

wmw,
Butter eggtart? Seems nice! I can hardly find any nice eggtarts here in Miri. Normally they're just too "dry".

And yes, bakeries just don't like to be photographed! I was told by a bakery in Melbourne that I was not allowed to take photographs... but I had taken like 10+ already. So, what's the point?;)

J2kfm : Definitely beats John King's!

worldwindows : Maybe cos they have volume...I know the tarts fly off the shelves. One second there's a tray full of them, the next second...all the tarts are gone! Hahaha...

Kok : I really don't know lo, maybe they are afraid people can copy their trade secrets. Right! If I was a competitor taking photos won't help, I'll buy the items and take it back...take photos and do food tasting! Hehehe...Come to KL, I belanja you egg tarts!

Ai Wei : Yes, so yummy...how have you been? Still studying?
