Tart Blanc: Pretty and Delicious-looking Tarts


Tart Blanc...

“Unless you are a professional, you will find the tart to be a high-maintenance, unforgiving whistle-blower of a pastry. “ - Sloane Crosley

Tarts are not easy to make, especially really good ones. I have yet to come across any mind-blowing tarts that I could remember of. The tarts that I have tried so far always ends up in one of the spectrum; they are either very aesthetically-appealing but lacks in taste or very delicious but lacks in appearance. It is thus rare and hard to find tarts in Singapore that fulfil both of these requirements. The closest that I could think of would probably be Tart Blanc.

Owned by two passionate sisters, Tart Blanc is a tart specialty café that offers a line of artisanal desserts and pastries, including luscious tarts, handmade cookies, the ever-popular macarons and gourmet sandwiches. As an accompaniment to their tarts, they also provide a range of premium espresso-based drinks and carefully curated tea selections for the guests to enjoy.

Also, as their name suggests, the tart shell is like a blank canvas to the baker only to be inspired by creativity in many forms, flavours and textures. This endless creativity explains why new tarts will always be introduced seasonally at Tart Blanc. You can also expect to see new tarts during festive occasions. For instance, their Bunny-inspired tart last Christmas was very well-received by the public.

Located within Millenia Walk, Tart Blanc is a small and cosy café that allows after-lunch indulgence, an afternoon tea break, or a sweet ending to your day, especially for those office people who wants to take a break from their hectic schedule. My impression of tarts have since changed for the better after visiting Tart Blanc.

I tried their Blueberry Lavender Chocolate Tart and Chicky Mango Tart the other day! Their coffee was really good as well.

Blueberry Lavender Chocolate Tart // $7.50

Lavender chocolate ganache, homemade blueberry jam, lavender honey soaked joconde, and blueberry mousse.
Probably one of the best tart I've ever tried so far. The blueberry, lavender and chocolate combination is sick because they complement one another so perfectly! The texture to each layer is complex and intriguing. I don't know the exact word or phrase to describe the taste except for the phenomenal pleasure to my tastebuds. I especially liked the chocolate filling inside the tart, an element of surprise which I would never forget. The chocolate was also not too overempowering - I could still taste the flavours of the blueberry and lavender. The crust at the bottom was also very crispy and flavoursome. The best thing to go with this tart would definitely be a hot pot of tea. A must-order if you love blueberry, lavender and chocolate! 

Chicky Mango Tart // $7.50

Lychee mochi, mango mousse with a white chocolate coconut creameux filling and mango glaze.
Mango-lovers would go crazy for this and it is so cute! I thought it was going to be so sweet just by looking at it but I was wrong. The mango flavour was really strong and flavourful but it was not sweet at all. The top layer was really smooth and it literally melts in my mouth. Again, there's nothing to complain about the crust. Perfect for afternoon tea!

Tart Blanc is also able to cater to any small or large corporate and social events. From casual party and intimate weddings to cocktail parties, Tart Blanc’s wide range of exquisite handmade petite tarts and baked goods will surely add a memorable touch to the dining experience.

For personal or corporate gifting, Tart Blanc also offers a decadent range of gourmet indulgences, beautifully packaged and customized for business, events and consumers. Packaged in design as elegant as the goodies nestled inside, a gift from Tart Blanc is an instantly recognizable statement of premier quality and good taste.
