There are three things we can’t do without for Chinese New Year: bak kwa (which we’ve already ranked), saintly patience for all those soul-sapping house visits, and pineapple tarts. While not everyone eats pork, almost anyone will accept a fruit-topped treat. It’s sweet, pretty and festive. It’s also extremely high in calories — and finding one worth inhaling all that sugar for is no easy task. Since not everyone is lucky enough to have a pastry wizard relative who gifts them amazing home-baked goodies, we scoured the island for 15 different pineapple tarts to buy and review. We chose only traditional-flavoured tarts for consistency. So no funky cheese or mala offerings here. However, we chose not to be super scientific about the shapes and sizes as we reviewed a mixture of open-faced and closed tarts. Because if we featured only one or the other — we'd have to exclude many must-try brands.
