When most pineapple tarts or pillows are loaded with butter & egg wash, the closest
pineapple pastry is this vegan version from House of Tau Sar Piah. The pastry is light and flaky. Haha this is the only time you can call someone flaky and still be ok to be in love! The filling (feeling lol pardon the pun) you get is warm & fuzzy. Just sweet enough (& not over saccharine sweet) to make you pine for more. This is my favourite version of the vegan Tau Sar Piahs here.
Tau Sar Piahs are made from beans. The owners make it by hand themselves and make it vegan with no egg or butter. They are just next to the temple and lots of vegetarians are old time loyal customers. I did not eat this growing up, yeah a bit of a deprived childhood in terms of tradition. I am now finding my roots through food.
