Mini Egg Custard Tarts, Elmhurst?
This past weekend, we just happened to purchase some “mini egg custard tarts” at a combination Chinese bakery and restaurant while shopping at the Chinese grocery store in the mini-mall in Elmhurst between 45th Ave and Whitney Ave, corner of Broadway. We do not know the name of the store, but it is just next door of the large Chinese grocery store (directly south of the grocery store while in the mall parking lot; the Thai restaurant “Nusara” mentioned on Chowhound is in this mini mall also), and it sells the cooked 3 items plus rice for about $5.00 on the left side of the store and the bakery is on the right side of the store. The mini egg custard tarts sell 3 for $1.00. Our egg custard tarts had just come out of the oven not too long ago and they were fairly decent with a flaky crust. We are not too familiar with Elmhurst and have not tried all of the Chinese bakeries in Elmhurst, hence we cannot say if this store has the best mini egg custard tarts, but this store definitely carries them.
