*Notice: I didn’t see John King’s kiosk at the Pavilion’s Food Republic anymore, suspecting that they’ve been closed down.
Was walking aimlessly at lower ground level in Pavilion two Saturdays ago with friends after lunch and some window shopping when my eyes spotted a small crowd in front the kiosk of John King. Egg tarts!
I quickly dashed over, leaving the guys behind and joined in the crowd. And when I saw the Green Tea Tarts, I remember Boo_licious mentioned this before. Luckily we went down to the lower ground area, else I would have missed it. They let us sample the tarts before buying which I think is a good marketing strategy. Who would resist free food, correct?
This picture was taken after the staff replenishes the item. I guess the Durian Tart was a popular hit among the patrons. Too bad I couldn’t get the Teh Tarik Tart as they’re already sold out by the time I reached and they’re still baking the next batch.
However, I managed to get the cookie crust Egg White Tart which in my opinion, tastes much better than their original pastry crust egg tart. Smooth texture of the filling and more fragrant than the original egg tart, but same like the green tea, the crust crumbles easily.
Need to break away from the usual egg tarts? Try the Gen-Y tarts at John King. 😉
