Let’s be real, tarts have always been a joy in the world of desserts. From its buttery crust to creamy filling in the middle, most cannot resist such sinful delicacies. With the influx of niche specialty bakeries popping up, tarts are getting more recognition than ever in the most unique ways.
But what if I told you that there is a local bakery in the heartlands that sells delicious home-baked tarts at affordable prices?
YM Bakery is a quaint little bakery situated in the basement of Paya Lebar Quarter that specialises in tarts, pastries, quiches, and more!
It did not come as a surprise to me that these tarts look absolutely pretty and delectable and just on aesthetics alone, those desserts look like they are calling out to me through the display glass. To which I will, of course, answer.
There is a fairly modest selection of flavours at YM Bakery given that the owners have chosen to focus on a range of classic flavours, with the occasional seasonal flavour.
If you are a fan of citrus and tangy flavours, the signature Lemon Meringue Tart (S$3) could be right up your alley, with a buttery crust and a good blend of sweet and sour that bursts in your mouth.
You can also try the Passionfruit Tart (S$3.70) that has more of a passionfruit zest kick to it.
For more earthy flavours, the Pecan Pie (S$4.70) has more of an almond nutty taste to it and it might appeal to those who enjoy more caramel flavours. Their Banoffee Tart (S$4.40), as you can guess from the name, is a combination of banana and coffee flavours whirled together in a delicious slice. Enjoying this tart with coffee is a definite must-try.
Aside from their signature tarts, YM Bakery also sells quiches for the lovers of all things savoury. Their Spinach and Mushroom Quiche (S$3) is a crowd favourite, boasting a crusty and buttery quiche base that is not at all greasy.
If you find yourself a little too busy to head down to PLQ for this bakery , you can also call in to pre-order bakes before collecting them from the store.
Do take note that it’s best to do it at least two business days before picking up your goodies so that YM Bakery has enough time to prepare your order!
So don’t forget to stop by this bakery and grab some tarts at YM Bakery the next time you find yourself travelling to the East!
