Pie & Tart Specialists - Favorite World Cup 2010 Snack

Pie & Tart
I love snacking while watching...anything.
Korean dramas...
Hollywood series...
Local late news...
and of course, FIFA World Cup 2010!

I wish I could stick to healthy snacks such as fruits, nuts, and the like...but you know me.
It is more likely for me to go for chips, ice cream and chocolate than anything healthy :D

Recently, I tried munching these goodness and I think I could never go back!
If you live in or have been to Hong Kong, have you tried
Pie & Tart Specialists?

The chicken pie? Yummy creamy filling, although the pie crust is a tad too sweet for my taste. I love Maxim's chicken pie better, but this isn't bad. A great savoury start for the first half of the game.
(As if I could wait for the second half before I devour the other item...)

My favorite from Pie & Tart Specialists?

Their Chocolate milk tart! Super duper mega delicious!
Sweet, smooth, chocolatey and creamy!
I didn't care which team won that night...this chocolate tart was the winner for me heheheh

PS. Hong Kong Broadcasting Authority, you are one of the main reasons that we, non iCable subscribers watched FIFA world cup this pitiful way:
Vuvuzela FIFA World Cup Streaming
(Since we don't subscribe to iCable and sometimes there are hiccups online streaming the matches via popular channels, sometimes, we had to watch via iPhone. Dammit!)

Look at SC blowing his vuvuzela in front of that pitiful screen...pathetic, aren't we? T_T

Mmm! I have never tried the Pie & Tart Specialist... is the chocolate tart really that good? I'm expecting something like Nutella inside.. :)

Healthy snacks are far less satisfying. These look fantastic!

Delicious-looking pie. I like the ones from Prima Deli. They use sweet pastry too. One of the reasons why I don't watch soccer matches because I don't want to join in my hubby's snacking habits till late into the nite or even early morn.

I have only tried the yogurt tart and is quite nice. I have the chance to pass through their shop in Olympic quite often and is tempting to grab one of theis desserts. I must try the others you show in the post.

Let´s continue enjoying the World Cup and tonite can be watched in the big screen, finally :D

The crust looks more like a sweet bun to me! I happen to like lightly sweetened crust, this sounds so good!

What a yummy snack! I watched Korean and Taiwanese dramas on my computer screen too. :D

Healthy snacks are not as wickedly delicious! :)

Adui so pitiful, you guys should have taken your holidays here in KL. the hawker stalls and coffee shops screen the matches on HD telly or on projector! the crowd is crazy and they even yell and shout at 2.30am!!!

Nice post.

You mentioned snacking on "fruit and nuts" - did you see the guidelines released by the Hong Kong Government about healthy watching of the World Cup? I agree that watching the games here has been really difficult - streaming often ruins the game because of the poor quality and going to a bar at 2.30am isn't always an inspiring option.

I've tried Pie & Tart Specialists a few times and really don't like them. The pastry is just too sweet, especially on the 'savory' pies.
