Mini Egg Tarts In Carnarvon Street, Penang

Now that we have discovered this authentic shop selling mini-sized oven-freshed egg tarts, we will not miss buying them whenever we visit Penang. This shop is along Carnarvon Street Penang and it is manned by an elderly couple plus a middle-aged man as seen in the pictures below.

When we reached their shop, there were no egg tarts yet, the man told us to come half an hour later... they don't accept "booking" cos the tarts are very fast sold out there and then....

After our Kimberley Street breakfast, we swiftly walked to the shop again, the timing was just nice..  we saw one tray of these mini egg tarts on the table, fresh from the oven!
Uncle Ah Pek told us to wait for a couple of minutes....
Guess what he is doing....
he was "fanning" the mini tarts using a manual fan...
Father and son, I think.... 
crispy hot egg tarts.. 
Taking the orders... 
this man in helmet bought 50 pieces.. 
We ordered 20 only.... 
all finished within a day!
Besides their fresh egg tarts, they have these for sale too...
The sesame balls from this post were bought from here...
All fresh and good....
oh by the way, the egg tarts cost 40sen each!
Cheap, right?
