Nan Pu Tuo Su Bing from Xiamen
The same check-in guy at the hotel also recommended I make my way to this place for some unique kind of tarts. It was actually quite an adventure to get here; the cabbie had to talk his way through the guards at Xiamen University since this one-and-only shop is on campus.
Or perhaps more precisely stated, it's at the Nanputuo Buddhist temple near campus. These are vegetarian as a result, and hence was nothing like those lard-ridden egg tarts from HK, despite the similar appearance. The pastry was thin, but the coconut filling that I chose kept me happy. If I understood them correctly, these are baked fresh daily.
