Traditional pastries tarts from Perla's Pastry Boutique

Apart from the lovely 5" cakes available in the main cake display upon entering the shop, the tarts are the other attraction in the shop.

Available in 3 sizes, 5" ($10.80), 7"($26.00) and 9" ($36.00), the tarts are beautifully topped with fruits with selection ranging from berries, apple with pine nuts, fig and many more.

Since we are avoiding pastries with nuts, we didn't get to try Pastry chef, Perla's favourite, the Amaretto Sbrisolona, a tart made of chocolate with almond custard.

Fig Tart (5" - $10.80)

Crostata Ai Frutti Di Bosco
Custard Tart filled and topped with fresh Blackberries and Raspberries

Both tarts are pretty similar (apart from the different toppings) with a mildly sweetened, smooth (slightly watery) custard cream. For that, the tart is relatively light and the tart base (probably due to the high water content in the custard) is soft with a cookie-like texture.

Similar to my previous review, Perla's Pastry Boutique is generous with the use of berries thus will have a bit of sourishness while the thinly sliced fig on the other tart is slightly sweeter.
