(This F&B establishment has since ceased operations.)
Opened a month or so back at Millennia Walk, tart blanc is a local patisserie that serves up creative dessert tarts.
Looking more like a clinic with its white-washed walls and furniture, one would not expect it to be a food establishment at the first look.
(Run & Eve Tart)
Tarts are not the only thing they sell but was our main reason to visit. The taste of rum was pretty evident and made a nice bittersweet yet tart flavour with the pineapple. The tart base had a layer of pineapple paste to further enhance the flavour, though the tart batter was somewhat dry and hard.
(Espresso Caramel Tart)
We had high expectations of the Espresso Caramel Tart, but it was in fact a Tiramisu on top of a tart base. We loved the deep aromatic flavour of Espresso in the mousse on the top, but there was a lack of caramel flavour overall. It might be a personal preference but the cake layering just did not seem to blend with the tart base as well.
(Macarons – Left to Right: Pistachio, Apple Caramel, Earl Grey Chocolate)
Macarons are also sold here. We ordered three flavours, namely the Pistachio, Apple Caramel and Earl Grey Chocolate. The Pistachio one had a nice nutty tasting shell with cream in it, while we enjoyed the Earl Grey Chocolate with the light tea aroma lingering as the sweetness of the chocolate ganache dies off in the tongue. The Apple Caramel Macaron was subtly sweet and fragrant but does not seem to taste anything near to its name.
The tarts at tart blanc would satisfy sweet tooths craving for intricate looking French tarts, though some items can be more refined. Dessert lovers should definitely pay them a visit; the alcoholic flavours are worth the time!
