Special thanks to Gartien for extending this product review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Despite being located at the bustling Penang Road (Jalan Penang), Gartien (小田佳园) is often overlooked by many passers-by due to its modest facade.
This location is Gartien's only retail outlet in Penang. The kitchen is located at the back of the store, but I have yet to see it in operation as my visits thus far unfortunately fall on weekends.
During this year's Chinese New Year, the Classic Pineapple Cake (经典黄梨酥, RM45.00) comes in a special box, making it highly presentable as gifts. Purchase of each box also includes a tote bag with a similar festive theme.
The box contains 8 pieces of pineapple cakes, each piece is individually sealed to maintain freshness. However, no artificial preservatives are used. Refrigeration is advised, but the cakes are best consumed at room temperature.
Gartien sources pineapples from a local farm in Juru. The pastry for pineapple cakes is made from halal-certified butter from New Zealand. Eggs and milk powder are used, but no meat is involved. This makes the pineapple cakes ideal for ovo-lacto vegetarians.
For customers' convenience, Gartien sponsors 30 minutes of parking expense at Hotel Central (中央大酒店). This outdoor parking lot is located at Lorong Bertam, which is just a short walking distance away.
Alternatively, customers can also place orders for nationwide delivery.
