We had a visitor who has a sweet tooth, so we took him for the egg tarts at Tai Cheong.   I have to say, that, while not as good as Macau style egg tarts, these were pretty good.  I normally like Macau egg tarts better for the flaky pastry and caramelized top.  Here, they are made in the HK way with a shorter pastry and a pale egg custard. They were served piping hot and at $5 a piece, did not break the bank.  The tarts were, once they cooled, pretty sweet and crumbly.  T...

Stopped by this famous place expecting it to be super expensive. But to my surprise, it was very affordable and great! I ordered a pinapple bun and 2 egg tarts. The egg tarts were quite firm and do not fall apart as easily as others'. The pinapple bun was quite sugary, but not sweet. The taste of the sugar on top balanced well with the eggy taste of the bun. Compared to the other bakeries, their pricing was rather cheap, and probably tasted better than the others too. The ladies ...

Everytime I walk by this area, I would have to stop by to get an eggtart from tai cheong. It's probably one of the best eggtarts I've had. I especially love the crispy cookie crust and the inside is just the perfect consistency. It's the best when it's fresh out of the oven and eat it on the spot! smile

The customer in front of me bought 4 dozen egg tarts. I watched in sheer horror as the fragrant golden yellow pastries disappeared before my own eyes. Thankfully there were two shop assistants and one of them entertained my request. I managed to get my egg tart. It was delicious. smile Traditional pie crust, not Portugese-style, is my thing. It was buttery yet not too crumbly and its aromas were mouth-watering. The eggy custard was still piping hot, sweet and silky smooth, melted in your m...

When you expect a item to taste a certain way, you are more likely to embrace it. But when it doesn’t come out the way you expect it, results, are more often than not, to be disastrous. But I am going to tell you a unique story about my egg tart at Tai Cheong Bakery. After lunch, Mr. J and I hiked up the familiar Lyndhurst Terrace, where I used to frequent many years ago when I was living in Hong Kong. We were told of the egg tart bakery that was just around the corner. B...

U know I work close enough to here so I have regularly bought egg-tarts from this shop. Sometimes due to curiosity or for after dinner desserts, I have also tried ordering it from mostly the CWB or Wanchai stores. What I have found very annoying as of late for a few months is that, this CENTRAL store always serves cold egg-tarts! I have no idea why this is the case as it wasn't like this around a year ago. The CWB and Wanchai stores in comparison, have NEVE...

I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooved their tart! Especially when they were freshly made in the morning! It is my tradition to eat one almost everyday when I get to work. I would recommend anyone to try this old hong kong tradition. Cheap and affordable. The crust is crunchy, and the filling is hot and rightly tasted.

I really like the egg tarts here! Everyone has their own preference to how they like their egg tarts. For myself, I like a cookie-type crust, unlike some people who like a flaky one. This place is 'famous' because of Chris Patten (is that correct?) so they charge quite a bit for their egg tarts. In many places in HK, egg tarts range from $2-3 for each one. The price is not very worth it but I do like how their crust is made. smile I think that the egg white egg tarts ar...

I am a tourist from Malaysia. Having been told by many friends who have visited Tai Cheong bakery that their egg tart is an obligatory snack which one can't afford to miss, I decided to make a foodie trip to HK in early December. The egg tarts are so perfectly done and almost all the tarts look identical. I was so impressed with the skill of the pastry chef who can produce such brilliant masterpiece by hand. When I sunk my teeth into the piping hot egg tart, I found that the cus...

Finally my friend sent me this picture and I can write this review. Went to this so-called most famous egg tart shop in Central! Seriously, they really need to improve the quality of their egg tarts or at least maintain their high quality of egg tarts. I spent $5 (pretty expensive) for just 1 egg tart. Honestly, it looks very beautiful. Very soft on the outside, but not good on the inside! When I bought it, it was cold, just cold! Not even warm!! I was utterly disa...
