Each tart comes with a delightfully buttery crust that’s paired with a tangy and sweet pineapple jam.

Starting off with their signature, the bak kwa is nicely cut into thick slices, giving each slice a substantial bite. There is a good layer of fats within the slices, giving you the perfect amount of sinfulness while keeping it juicy. Flavourwise, it has a good balance of sweetness and blends well with the flavour of the pork.

Another one of their best-sellers, the spicy version is perfect for those who love their heat. As compared to the signature, the spicy version does have more char, giving it a plus point. What makes this bak kwa stand out is that you first enjoy the sweetness of the marinade, followed by a delightful kick of spice that lingers and makes you crave for more with each bite!
