I went to Pavilion with the hot chick yesterday for a little bit of walk and shop. It is rather crazy that we had three new malls (or extension of the current) opened during the past quarter, I guess shopping is really the national past time here in the valley of mud.
We saw a crowd of over a dozen people surrounded the John King Egg Tart stall just as we came up to the food court from the escalator. Curiosity got the better of us and we joined the group to investigate the commotion. Apparently samples of the egg tarts and other traditional Chinese pastries were being handed out at the counter. We took a small sample and decided we need to buy some of these stuff.
yummm.. egg tarts
John King Egg Tart is said to be originally from Hong Kong, and this is their first branch in Malaysia. They offer 3 types of egg tarts, the original, egg white only egg tart (healthier I suppose), and a rather interesting durian flavored egg tart. There are also lou phor peng (老婆饼), chicken pie，and siu pao (烧包).
The crust of the tarts was really fluffy and goes very well with the very soft texture of the fillings that are not overly sweet nor oily. It felt very light and yet very delicious, the durian egg tart really does taste of strong durian smell and flavor, not to be missed by durian lovers. I tried samples of the chicken pie and siu pao, and they were pretty good too despite having chicken instead of the pork in their siu pao.
this stuff is really awesome
The egg tart goes for RM 1.60 to RM 2.00 a piece, siu pao is RM 1.50, and the chicken pie are RM 2.60. These stuff makes for good snacks, try it! There are also many other interesting dining choices in this nicely decorated food court (including J.Co Donut), check out masak-masak’s post on this place.
