BEST BEST BEST BEST egg tart I have ever tasted. I bought one after saw a big egg tart statue on Peak Galleria and assuming this shop must be famous of its egg tarts. And yes, I love it from the very first bite.

If you like egg tarts, you should go. That egg tart was delicious. We made the trek in the rain and it was worth it. Also, 7 HKD a pop.

Tried a few famed egg tarts makers, this is still the best I've eaten. My advice to enjoy the taste, eat it while its hot and right out from the oven, it will never taste the same once you pack it to consume later

We always drop by to this bakery every time we visit HK just to have their egg tarts :) They're so yummy! Best to eat them hot and freshly baked.

Definitely a well put together egg tart. It's in the Hong Kong style with the pure yellow colour - as opposed to the Macau style with the more caramelised effect. Nice pastry for the tart - but they also use that pastry for their other pies and it doesn't really work for them - too rich and breaks up easily.

I used googlemaps to locate the shop and it wasnt easy and I kind of got lost around the uphill and turning into lanes. haha! I usually prefer the flaky crust Portuguese Egg Tarts. But I decided to have a try and went and bought these. Did not regret my decision. For the price paid, worth it! Custard filling is... More

The egg tarts from Tai Cheong bakery are delicious and not pricey. It has a very buttery taste and not too sweet. Highly recommended.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
