Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
For KFC, the answer is a no-brainer. They started off selling fried chicken, but now, they also sell egg tart!
It was launched in February this year, but I’ve only just checked out KFC’s Portuguese-style egg tart.
Surprisingly, it was pretty good. I liked the crust a lot. It was crisp, light, and flaky without disintegrating too easily.
The egg custard wasn’t too sweet and had a faint caramelized fragrance. As you can see from the cross-sectioned tart, the custard wasn’t evenly smooth. But it tasted fine.
Just wondering, does anyone remember Portuguese egg tart being a major food fad about 10 years ago? I remember seeing people queuing for them everywhere, but the trend died down just as quickly as it started.
Apparently, KFC’s egg tart become really popular in their Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China outlets. That’s why Singapore’s KFC decided to bring it in too. Do you think it will re-ignite our passion for Portuguese egg tart?
