Review: Butter Pastry Egg Tart from Tong Kee Brothers Confectionery

Most of us, KLites, are familiar with Tong Kee's mouth watering egg tart of flaky pastry and eggy custard. Tong Kee's egg tart is by far the best in Klang Valley in my book lah, well excluding those I've eaten in Hong Kong. However, I discovered recently that they have another version where the pastry is made with butter! I bought 2 last week just to test out.

The butter version is RM1.30 in yellow paper casing wherelse the normal version is priced at RM1.20. As you can see below, the butter pastry looked less flaky.


The first bite, it was crispy!!! The crispyness is different from the normal pastry one, kinda crunchy to the bite. So I took out my camera and quickly snap a pic before its all gone. The subsequent bites were just absolutely Heavenly... crisp buttery pastries coupled with soft and silky custard. Totally different in texture, all I can say it was very very flavoursome indeed.


Other than egg tarts, I also liked the chicken pie which I've woofed down without taking any pic of it, sorry haha. I've also threw away the box that stated down their current brances :p Another must buy is the sponge cake in paper casing. Oh dear, I really feel like having all of these now for tea!

  1. The butter version sounds delicious! I wish I could have one now. H-u-n-g-r-y lar.

  2. I have some puff pastry sitting in my freezer. You have any recipe for a good egg custard to make tarn tart-ah?

  3. my boss was just saying that it's time for a dose of tong kee today and haha..u wrote about it. yeah, we usually buy the butter version for our muslim frens..they love it too!

  4. Hi babes,

    You are right about their egg tarts. Delicious! Just as you described.

    Another worthy try is their baked pork bun, round and brownish, with char siew bits inside. The bun pastry is really soft, especially its inside where the char siew sauce has seeped in.

    I can easily down 2 buns. Alright, alright. Down on a hungry day. :)

    Wei Wan

  5. i love almost everything there, especially their bun... when i working nearby, i can spend about RM10 everyday, just to get buns, tart, cake, swiss roll for my family.

    try their 5-gains healthy bread on Friday (need to reserve!) and their kaya swiss roll, both very very nice.

  6. this place sounds like a gem! looking at the other comments... i wish i can sink my teeth in the flaky buttery egg tart.

  7. I swear i never liked egg tarts before.. but now that i cant' get them.. i crave so hard for them.. ironic eh..??

  8. Ei...didn't know there are 2 different versions. But i just love their piping hot egg tarts....yummy!

  11. Oh yah, there used to be a branch in Jusco MidValley but now dunno where already.

  12. really the best egg tarts I have had in Malaysia also. REcently tried to compare them with some egg tarts we had in Sydney and still prefer TK's Egg Tarts ...

  13. babe jie, i'm No1 fan of tong kee egg tarts, kakakakaka, and also their fluffy pancakes with peanut/chocolate/orange marmalade/strawberry fills/chicken floss, those pancakes are TO DIE FOR!!!! eat them once and you will always want to bite into their fluffiness again. Peanut butter is my fav.

    The cupcakes in paper also very nice, but still i prefer the pancakes n the egg tarts

  14. just tried da normal ones not long ago... looks like i must go to da nearest branch to get da butter version, sounds so yummy!!!! must try!

  17. butter pastry! yum! i personally think the tong kee egg tart is the best, even better than the HK ones IMHO. now even better with butter - definitely must try...

  18. Hope you don't mind I borrowed your list of addresses ... it is certainly yummy!


    Cheers :-)
