Gartien 小田佳园 (Pineapple Cakes)

Who says that only Taiwan got pineapple cakes??
Now you may also find it in Penang!!!
Taiwan’s famous delicacy, 鳳梨酥 (“Feng Li Shu”) is reinvented and baked locally at Gartien 小田佳园, using only 100% freshly harvest pineapples. 

Gartien is a store specializes only in gourmet pineapple cake. The store uses pineapples from plantation in Nibong Tebal, Penang and cooked them for 12 hours till it is full of sweet and sour goodness. The outer golden crust of the cake is made fresh with  natural ingredients and pure butter, and then baked using traditional methods to retain the unique tastes and quality. The slightly sweet, chewy and generous pineapple filling has made a perfect complement with crispy buttery outer layer.

It is best served with an unsweetened tea or warm water.

 It tastes very different from the other traditional pineapple cakes. Because the ingredients are all natural, the filling is very fresh and you can really chew on the little chunks of pineapples. These buttery little parcels contain a sweet and sour combination surprise within. The filling may be slightly vary in taste for different production batch as it is very dependable on the pineapples itself....
 and because of this, it may creates much more surprises and fun when consuming it. XD

Comfortable sitting where you can talk and learn more about the pineapple cakes with the shop owner. You may surprises yourself as there are so much knowledge needed for producing a good and delicious pineapple cakes.

The best part of it is no preservative is added throughout the process. Because of this, these can only be kept for 1 month at most. Please take note of the short shelf life. Besides, there are also 'best taste after' date (usually after 8 or 9 days from the manufactured date) where the pineapple cakes are in their best state for you to taste. haha... Seems that there are alot to learn about the little pineapple cakes right? 

The pineapple cakes were packed elegantly in 10 pieces per box.

Gartien Pineapple Cake 500grams (10 of 50 grams each)

The price is a little expensive... BUT think of it again, 
  1. It's all natural with 100% pineapples filling.
  2. No preservative and no added flavouring essence.
  3. Very buttery goodness pastry.
  4. Nice and elegant packaging.
What can you ask for more??? It's definitely worth the price. Premium product, premium quality with affordable price.

p/s: Due to the reason that they make everything themselves from the pastry to the filling, there were limited numbers of production every week. So do make a call to the shop to avoid any disappointment if you want to purchase it in a large quantity.

My little teddy also love it  XD
