Bunn Choon Egg Tart

Charcoal sesame egg tarts - MYR1.90 nett each. Normal egg tarts - MYR1.70 nett each. I can taste the lard in the pastry of both types of egg tart.
Almond tart - MYR2.50 nett each - the fillings taste like butter cake in pastry casing with almond slices toppings - tasty for those who like the taste of butter.
Pineapple Coconut flakes tart - MYR2.50 nett each. There are more coconut than pineapple in the fillings with a strong butter pastry.

There is a hole in the box to prevent water condensation

A stall in Imbi wet market

This is the only time that I went to the wet market in Imbi so we ordered the following food from the hawker stalls there but I did not take any photos of the food because it was crowded and quite dim so I will just list them here for my record:
1. The famous hainan tea (which has coffee in it) - MYR2.20 - very special taste of tea and coffee, unlike other hainan tea I have tasted before. For those who like to drink hainan tea should try this.
2. Kaya and butter bun - MYR2 from the same stall that serves the hainan tea.
3. Mee Sua in Rice wine soup with omelette ginger - MYR8 - a bit salty with lots of omelette and ginger slices. There were bits of egg shells in the omelette.
4. Nasi Lemak (Coconut milk rice) with Curry Pork Skin - MYR5.50 - The curry has a lot of coconut milk so is very creamy.
5. Char Kway Teow - MYR5 - a bit on the sweet side due to the dark soy sauce used.
Anyone ate at this Imbi Wet Market before?

    1. It is near Berjaya Times Square. Portugese egg tart is more expensive in general I think.

  2. I used to go to Imbi market a long time ago and liked the food there. Since they may be moving soon, perhaps I should make another visit.

  3. Mun, the charcoal ones look interesting. So far I like those Portuguese egg tarts because of their fluffy pastry. xoxo

    1. You are right. I always like to eat egg tarts, more with butter pastry than those with lard pastry.

  10. I might have eaten at the wet market before when I was a kid...

    Charcoal egg tarts huh... Did they taste any different compared to the normal ones? If yes means you can taste the charcoal, then I'll stick to the normal ones..
