Big flavours come in small packages, as evidenced by these mouth-watering tarts crafted by homegrown brands.
Simple Indulgence Patisserie
This small patisserie prides itself in creations made from fresh, unadulterated ingredients — and its petite tarts are no exception. Each bite-sized morsel is the epitome of guilt-free indulgence: light and buttery, topped with delicious fillings, and free from artificial preservatives and colouring.
Try the best-selling Apple Crumble, which features a delicate pastry shell filled with rich, caramelised apple infused with heady notes of Madagascar vanilla. Other refreshing flavours include the Passionfruit Dark Chocolate and Matcha Strawberry. Or try the Valrhona Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel petite tart, which harmoniously blends decadent dark chocolate with luscious, salted caramel.
