Egg Custard Tarts?
Does anyone know where i can buy those Egg custard tarts they serve at Dim sum at various places? I am looking for a place near the tysons corner area. I have been able to find them at Mark's duck house, but they run out early during lunch time. Anyone know of a bakery that has these in stock regulary?
I LOVE Chinese Egg Custard Tarts--especially when they are fresh out of the oven. You can usually get them while they last at Maria's Bakery (Eden Center- Falls Church & Rockville). Maria's is a Chinese bakery in the Vietnamese Eden Shopping Center. Maria's also has a variety of yummy Chinese/Hong Kong style buns, snacks, boba tea, and cakes.

Oh wow, love Chinatown NYC--they have an amazing variety and quality of egg tarts. In fact, there is a cafe especially dedicated to these yummy treats. I've made a few NYC trips, just to go there. I unfortunately haven't seen the Portuguese style recently at our local Maria's.

I love this amazing photo of the tarts fresh out of the oven. The Girl Who Ate Everything is a great food blog with photos.
