Gartien Pineapple Cake @ Lorong Macalister, Penang.

With Chinese New Year is just around the corner, have you thought of what to be sent as gifts during this auspicious time? It is a common practice to send gifts to business partners, relatives, family and friends but sending the usual stuff is just too boring for you? Worry not, do put Gartien's Pineapple Cakes into your considerations. Gartien is a locally/ Penang based company, making quality and savory Pineapple cakes using local ingredients. Gartien has its own pineapple plantation in Nibong Tebal and all their pineapple cakes filling is made using their 100% freshly harvested pineapples. As the production of the hand-made pineapple cakes is rather limited, it is highly recommended to make your reservation before your collection. Gartien is located at Lorong Macalister, a road beside Hong Leong Bank Burmah Road. They do have some Limited Edition Pineapple Cakes offering from time to time, check out their Facebook Page for some updated information.

One box of Pineapple Cake (a box of 10 pieces) is priced at Rm 38 nett. I'd say the price is definitely reasonable considering the portion of one pineapple cake and its freshness. I like the fact that the cake is being fluffy and aromatic. Compliments should be given to them for perfecting the recipe for such a delightful result of having a balanced sourness and sweetness. I am never a fan of pineapple cakes as I always find them too sweet and heavy to my liking but the sourness hidden within Gartien's pineapple is just exactly what I want. Unlike some pineapple tarts/cakes, the tangy pineapple filling was at their just right texture, as I would not even bother to try if its in the form of those ordinary pineapple jam. The pineapple cakes are best served with a cup of Chinese Tea to further enhance its flavor and to balance up everything. It makes a good  choice for high-tea and coffee break too. What impressed me further was the packaging of the pineapple tarts, Gartien has made it more classy and presentable, making it a perfect gift idea for you and your family for this season. For any purchases of 10 boxes around Chinese New Year, customers will be given a complementary box of pineapple cakes. Interested parties are encouraged to make their reservation upon collection. For inquiries and reservations, kindly contact Gartien, more information can be found at the bottom of this post.
