Pineapple Tarts Singapore Review (Original and Cheese flavours)


When someone mentions about Chinese New Year, all I can think of are the festive goodies, especially pineapple tarts! ;) Pineapple tarts are my favourite festive snack and when contacted me if I would like to give their pineapple tarts a try, I immediately replied Yes! Truth be told, I was a little skeptical as to whether their pineapple tarts were good as I've tasted a couple of pineapple tarts that tasted more like pineapple biscuits (little pineapple filling + hard thick pastry). However, thankfully, their pineapple tarts didn't taste like pineapple biscuits at all and in fact, they were delicious!! :)

Background of

It all started with a golden recipe back in 1979. They started off with a humble bakery in Penang selling their homemade pineapple tarts which soon became a top favourite among the folks. Business soared and by the year of 2000, Pineapple Tarts Singapore have had a total of 47 outlets selling pastries all around Malaysia!

After realising there was great demand from their Singaporean customers, they then decided to start an e-commerce and presto, was born! :)

1) Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts

Delivered and packed in an airtight container for freshness :)

Melt in your mouth, buttery, perfect balance of sweetness? Say no more! mouth- watering pineapple tarts are baked to perfection with the most premium of ingredients and the freshest of pineapples for the filling.

The crust brings a melt-in-your-mouth sensation and a strong buttery taste which crumbles brilliantly with each bite. The pineapple filling is not too sweet nor sour, and the crust has a good buttery texture. Combined with the perfect balance of sweet and sour of the pineapple filling, these pineapple tarts will definitely make you ask for more!

Rating: 4/5

2) Cheese Pineapple Tarts

Are you a cheese lover? If yes, this will be perfect for you! Honestly, I'm not a fan of cheese and was really hesistant to take a bite of their cheese pineapple tarts. However, I was surprised to find that it tasted really good and even better than their original pineapple tarts! Permesan cheese is fused together with the buttery crust, hence bringing about a perfect combination of different flavours. Every bite guarantees 100% statisfaction. Once you have one piece of this savoury treat, you can't stop having another, and another, and another.... (well, at least that's what happened to me. Haha!)

Rating: 4.5/5

OMGGG. I chanced upon this blog post which I didn't publish previously (no idea why!) and the photos were taken LAST YEAR before I had Natalie! Nathan was only about a year old and Shayne was 7 years old. I believe it was taken during the National day period in 2015. We had lunch at Brewerkz (one of my favourite restaurants!) that day and decided to do some strolling/sight-seeing after that. Here are some of the photos of that day in 2015! :D

1 year old Nathan :)

Wearing red because it was a few days before National Day! ;)

My favourite buffalo wings!!! YUMMM.
Baby-wearing 1 year old Nathan :)
Happy Happy Shayne!
Happy SG50 sweets! #watermelonflavour

"Mama can we leave now? I want to play outside," says Shayne :D
Lil Brother on the loose!!! When Nathan realised that he was in the middle of a BIG empty space, he started to become really excited and kept running everywhere. Haha.

Running and running
Checking out the messages and tiny locks of love...
Striking a pose! (look at his 'botak' head!!! hahaha my cute lil Nathan :))

We walked further down and when we walked past this little fountain area, both of them immediately entered in and walked around the area. They had a blast playing with the little fountains for about 20 minutes, especially Nathan, and he cried so hard when we carried him away to dry up. Haha.

Initially, Nathan was stunned by the wet floor and kept staring down while walking around...
But after a minute or two, both of them started to become more adventurous!

Playing and chasing each other ;)

Nathan's hair and bottom were soaking wet, but he was extremely happy! :D

A soaking wet baby and a protective brother <3 

So that marks the end of this 2015 post which I didn't publish, until now in Dec 2016! It must have slipped off my mind somehow... These 2 are now big brothers to Natalie and it's still kinda surreal how fast time flies and how fast my babies are growing up. *inserts super emo-teary emoticon* I'm so glad that I've got this blog to remind me of the happy memories of my family, especially with my littles ones. <3

Carlton Hotel Staycation Part 2 + Naughty Nuri's Ribs Restaurant!

Ribs at Naughty Nuri's. It's their signature dish ;)
Here are the remaining photos of our staycation at Carlton Hotel (Day 2)! We hung out at the nearby malls that day and had such a delicious lunch at Naughty Nuri's Ribs restaurant (more on that soon!) It was lovely to take a break from our hectic work schedule and now, I can't wait for Christmas to spend more time with my family and friends. :)

Admiring the view every day and every night :) It was one of his fav activity during the staycation.

Wearing Shayne's pj which he had outgrown. I remember Shayne would wear this same pj whenever we stayed at hotels..

Good morning, Nathan :)

Happy Shayne and his scooter!

Finally, LUNCH!!! "Anthony Bourdain, author of Kitchen Confidential and host of his famous TV series, shared several Naughty Nuri’s martinis with Brian and wrote in the guest book that the Naughty Nuri’s martini’s were the best he had outside of New York. Many celebrities, including fashion designer, Donna Karen, and major film stars like Julia Roberts have visited Naughty Nuri’s and loved the ribs, drinks and the great atmosphere. Author, Elizabeth Gilbert who wrote, ‘Eat, Pray, Love was a regular at Naughty Nuri’s for many years while living and working in Ubud." (you can read more about the restaurant here.)

BBQ cheesy fries (quantity was quite small considering that it cost $8, but the flavour and amount of melted bbq cheese makes up for that. It was SO GOOD.)
Mocktail for me! ;)

The half-rack ribs ($18.80 for half, $35.80 for full rack) were covered in a delicious mouth-watering sweet-savoury sauce. Some parts were perfectly charred and the meat was perfectly tender. YUMMMM....


 Naughty Nuri's is located at 15 Stamford Road, #01-84, Capitol Singapore (near City Hall MRT).
Opening Hours: 11am – 11pm (Mon – Thurs), 11am – 12am (Fri – Sat). (in case you're wondering, this is not an ad... the food is really worth travelling for! ;))
some random photos taken over the next few hours..

my 9 months baby girl <3
my 28 months toddler son. love my 3 kiddos so much! <3

playing with his Papa. // Nathan would climb onto his Papa's legs and then leap off backwards onto the bed. Haha boys..
This was really a funny moment. Papa kept pretending to be looking outside enthusiastically with Nathan, but Nathan couldn't be bothered by him. Haha! Love the fact that both of them were wearing matching t-shirts. :)
So that's the end of our Carlton Hotel staycation post! I'll upload our recent Bali holiday photos soon. We booked a 3 bedroom villa for ourselves with an outdoor pool, and stayed at Bali for 5 days and 4 nights. We spent most of our time in the villa and it was so relaxing... Ok more photos of that in a few days time. Ciao!
