From classic tarts to unique renditions, these are the best pineapple tarts to try in Singapore for the upcoming New Year.

The best pineapple tarts in Singapore

It’s a unique twist on classic Chinese New Year goodies: Shrimp Sambal Pineapple Tarts with a tinge of savoury spice. The red chilli padi (bird eye’s chilli) and dried shrimp might not seem like a conventional match, but the organic pineapple paste offers a sweet contrast to the spice. They do also have traditional pineapple tarts like the Organic Pineapple Rolls ($31).

Pineapple tarts are always a classic CNY treat – the very best come with a buttery crust, with a melt-in-the-mouth crumb. It’s no different at local brand Ding Bakery, with their traditional open-faced Nyonya Pineapple Tarts (from $16.90) and Buttery Pineapple Balls (from $20.90). For 2023’s Chinese New Year, they even have six unique flavours to look out for: Salted Egg, Matcha, Taro Blueberry, Mango Pineapple, Pandan Pineapple, and Charcoal Pineapple. Besides pineapple tarts, Ding Bakery also has a selection of CNY goodies including hae bee hiam (spicy dried shrimp rolls, $15.90) and kueh bangkit (coconut cream cookies, $16.50).

From Zee & Elle

Humble pastry shop Zee & Elle often makes showstoppers of cakes, but this time, we’re keen on their Jasmine Oolong Pineapple Tarts. Interestingly, the crumble is infused with jasmine and oolong tea – subtle floral notes that aren’t overpowered by the pineapple paste. Their Chinese New Year “Spring Blossoms” lineup includes a Mango Yuzu Tart ($32.90) and Bandung Coconut Cookie ($25.80) too.

From The Hainan Story

With pineapple tarts as golden as these, you know that they were generous with the butter. And that’s exactly how we like it, especially when paired with a tart pineapple filling. Pop one of these bite-sized Golden Prosperity Pineapple Tarts into your mouth – it’s easy to lose count of how many you’ve indulged in. Since their bakery dabbles in Hainanese Western fare, The Hainan Story is also known for their fluffy swiss rolls ($12.70 a roll), with flavours like orh nee (sweet yam paste) and teh tarik (milk tea).
