We earnestly believe in starting our day with a crispy, crunchy tart. On some days we go for our favourite kinds, and on some, we want to try something new. Either way, Singapore’s patisseries, and bakeries keep us delighted with our regulars, as well as entice us frequently with their delightful creations.

Let us walk you through the best of tarts in Singapore and the wonderful bakeries making them. Image Credit: Nichesav.com​​​​​​​

Wunderfolks

Wunderfolks Tarts​​​​​​​

Handmade tarts anyone? Made fresh daily at Wunderfolks cute store on Joo Chiat Road. We were excited when we stumbled across this outlet. Love tarts especially fine elegant ones. We liken these tarts to ones we are accustomed to having in a fine dining restaurant. Gourmet filling with crunchy shells. Wunderfolks started by making larger 20cm tarts with six flavours. For $45 choose from mixed fruit, lemon, maple pecan, dark chocolate, lychee and black sesame. Customers who frequented the shopfront however, often requested mini tarts. That led to the birth of smaller 8cm tarts priced at $8 each or $42 for a pack of six. We love these tarts!

Flor Patisserie

Flor Patisserie

Popular for their freshly baked, moist cakes, Flor Patisserie loves to decorate their bakes in a floral pattern. Buying their various treats would then be like customising a bouquet, and we like to make one for ourselves every now and then. Their tarts are just as exceptional as their cakes, and the popular ones include Yuzu Strawberry Tart, Dark Cherry Custard Tart, Pistachio Strawberry Tart, and Amera Tomato Tart. The tomato tart may sound unusual, but it is a must-try and will surprise you with its burst of delicate flavours. Image Credit: Flor Patisserie Facebook Page

Drips Bakery Cafe

Drips bakery cafe

Relishing tarts at Drips is one of the most hedonistic experiences we have had at a Singapore bakery, and choose to remain biased towards its delicious Lemon Tart. At the same time, we would agree with the masses and give their signature Seasonal Fruit Tart with its delicate custard and fresh berries a big thumbs up. Despite having some of the freshest, tastiest fruits and berries to top their delicious tarts, their Baked Macadamia Nut Tart remains the most popular owing to its nutty, crunchy, heavenly taste in every bite.

Niche Savoureuse​​​​​​​

Working hard to give you delicious handmade treats made with natural colours and flavours, Niche Savoureuse is a place you should definitely visit. You can pick up some of their artisanal loaves of bread, sit down to relish their delicious pizzas and waffles, or tuck into their flavourful tarts. Each of their tarts is high in flavour because of the reduced sugar, and they do not have gelatine either. It is quite like feasting on our grandmother’s tarts, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The bakery makes Lemon Meringue, French Apple, and Fresh Fruit Tarts, and they are available for home delivery too! Image Credit: Niche Savoureuse Facebook Page

Patisserie Clé

potisserie cle ​​​​​​​

The zing of each tart at Patisserie Cle is mouth-watering and keeps you going for another bite till the tart is all gone. Yes, this has happened to us, which is why we order at least six of these delicious delights. Made with the freshest produce, the tarts here are bursting with decadence and fruity goodness. Relish seasonal berries with their Blueberry Rose, Mango, and Strawberry tarts. Their Lemon Meringue Tart and Bourdaloue Tart are perfect for those who love delicate flavours. And for those who love a little more decadence, should go for their Cognac Caramel Chocolate Tart. Image Credit: Patisserie Cle Facebook Page

Luna Singapore

Luna

The tarts at Luna are famous for their thick, buttery crusts, and each filling is delicious. We cannot resist their Tarte au Tropicale filled with pineapple cremeux and diced pineapple, with a quenelle of coconut mousse which melts in the mouth. The unique tart here is Goma x PB; the filling is Japanese black sesame crème, fresh peanut butter, topped with a sesame chantilly. The other crowd favourites include Sea Salt Noir Dark Chocolate (70%), Yuzu Meringue Cheese, and Hojicha-Kōhī. They also make pretty cakes with a rich finesse, and every bite of their baked treats is out-of-the-world. Image Credit: Luna Singapore Facebook Page

Handmade tarts anyone? Made fresh daily at Wunderfolks cute store on Joo Chiat Road. I was excited when I stumbled across this outlet. Love tarts especially fine elegant ones. I liken these to ones I am accustomed to having in a fine dining restaurant. Gourmet filling with crunchy shells. 

What began as a home-based business, saw demand amongst friends and family which helped fuel Wunderfolks to the next level. They knew they had found a niche with patrons who came back repeatedly for more. Today, a full-fledged business on the growth path, Wunderfolks has increased their repertoire of flavours.

Wunderfolks started by making larger 20cm tarts with six flavours. For $45 choose from mixed fruit, lemon, maple pecan, dark chocolate, lychee and black sesame. Customers who frequented the shopfront however, often requested mini tarts. That led to the birth of smaller 8cm tarts priced at $8 each or $42 for a pack of six.

A fantastic option if you are in charge of dessert for a dinner party. Stylish and elegant, the larger tarts can be split into two flavours - lemon and dark chocolate for example.

Dale, marketer and designer attends to front-end business while Vincent an avid baker, ensures the back-end kitchen runs to clockwork precision. They obviously know what they are doing as Wunderfolks saw business grow from online orders, shopfront takeaways and corporate events. Their tarts are perfect for festive celebrations too.

Since all tart shells are made with tender loving care which takes time and effort, quantities are limited. Made with awesome ingredients, they are so crumbly and buttery.

Wunderfolks also launch special weekends where they bake four flavours in one tart. Not only does it look scrumptious with four different quarters, they are also a quirky, unique dessert to boast at a corporate event or any event really!

I cut into my first tart “Hey Sesame” – silky, creamy & luscious black sesame ganache very much an Asian flavor. The sesame flavor was not overpowering as it sometimes can be, in dominating the entire dish.

In fact the creamy ganache texture played a dominant role this time round with vanilla tones. Really delicious as a cool dessert that would cut any heavy meal that came before.

As I bit into the next tart “Lemony Meringue” – homemade tangy and zesty lemon curd with lightly toasted fluffy meringue, I noticed the crunchy shell texture against the soft curd that oozed out the side.

Elegant in taste and presentation I would liken it to a tart served in a fine dining restaurant. Wunderfolks crew have got it right in terms of timing, as specially crafted tarts have become the “in-thing”

Most of these tarts can be served chilled. In fact highly recommended that they are stored for a maximum of 3 days. I tried the “Fruitilicious Mixed Fruit” at breakfast.

This traditional tart has been around for a long time but is still a welcome change especially when seeking something light. According to Wunderfolks the “Lychee” tart is a hot favourite. Fruity flavours are often sought out after a big meal.

For me nothing beats the “Maple Pecan”, maple almond frangipane base is topped with roasted pecans. This is a tart that can be served warm with a scoop of ice-cream. Highly indulgent but what the heck!

Last but not least the highly acclaimed “Valrhona Dark Chocolate” with 70 percent Guanaja chocolate ganache is cased in a handmade dark cocoa shortcrust pastry.

I love any dessert with dark chocolate as the bittersweet end to a meal leaves me complete and wanting for nothing. Wunderfolks you’ve done wonders!
