Can't really go wrong with their egg tarts. Fresh, tasty and easily available. You can even pay with the Octopus card.

I love egg tarts and on my recent trip to Guanzhou and Hong Kong must have tried half a dozen stalls. Tried Tai Cheong egg tarts fresh from the oven. It probably ranked third or fourth. Honolulu Cafe in Wanchai, a roadside stall in Wanchai market and one off Shangxiajiu in Guangzhou were better in my books. But to be... More

Tai Cheong Bakery is a long-standing and famous Hong Kong bakery with several branches around the city. However, it is this branch at Lydhurst Terrace, near its original shop, which opened in 1954, that is most famed with locals and foreign visitors. So What is all the fuss? Well, basically, Hong Kong's last Governor, Chris Patton, frequented Tai Cheong Bakery... More

Bought egg tarts, chicken pie, char siew pie from the outlet at The Peak Galleria. The crust is way too thick. Filling was ~30% of the whole pie. Found a better tasting egg tart near Mong Kok at a cheaper price.

My walking guide insisted we come here even though I was stuffed from our previous restaurant. She explained that it was a famous, old bakery (but now a chain) in Hong Kong and the last UK appointed governor loved the egg tarts. Then when I was just going to take my egg tart for later she insisted I eat it... More

These delicious innocent looking stuff definitely got sold out fast, thus, we had to wait for the next batch. These freshly baked instantly captured our hearts from the first bite. Crispy tart with smooth center. A few flavours for selection, we chose the original and cheese. Surely the best egg tart ever.

I was expecting the best, it was good, but not the best I've taste. The custard has a jelly like consistency, instead of the creamy custardy type which I prefer.

So glad there are so many branches around in Hong Kong now that the Lydhurst branch is not queuing like crazy anymore. The egg tart has remained it's standard and it's forever so good, so good to the extend that it melts in your mouth! A definite must try in Hong Kong! One other thing not to be missed is... More
