I tried the pinnacle cake and the egg tarte. In my opinion, it was nothing special and not worth the money. Especially the pinnacle cake was below average.

Cost a dollar than other places in Mongkok. Pastry is not the flaky kind. The egg custard is a little too sweet.

The egg tarts here are to die for, and are a must-try! Apparently there are two types - the buttery one and one made with pork oil (lard, perhaps?). I prefer the buttery one. The chicken pie, though touted as good by some, were average by our standards. Reason being the crust was too thick and made it hard to... More

I had read that they have the best egg tarts in HK, so when we were in the area, my wife and I went to try it out. As I was walking down the street, I took a bite and had to stop walking, so I could concentrate and savor the moment. It was that good. The crust has a... More

As a self-professed egg tart aficionado, I make it a point to sample an egg tart whenever I see them sold in a bakery. Tai Cheong has some of the best I've tasted in a long time. The flaky crust and the soft, sweet eggy custard make them a clear winner. Because turnover is high, fresh batches of egg tarts... More

The egg tarts are the best I have eaten so far. The taste is heavenly, regardless or which branch I bought it from. The shop was along Wellington St and the road wasn't easy to walk due to the slope. It's near LKF so navigation is easy.

I have read so much about the egg tarts from this bakery that I just had to try one. We stumbled on their shop at the Peak Galleria without knowing that it was Tai Cheong. I just wanted some pastry and bread to take home to the hotel. I ordered a box and wow! I so loved it! The day... More

So egg tarts are available at almost every bakery in HK with various quality levels, Tai Cheong is by far the best we had. Smooth, velvety custard, crisp but falling apart casing, still warm.....all perfectly executed. However, I am not really a fan of them, they are a little too eggie for my liking. Its kind of like eating scambled... More

This is the most delicious hongkong style egg tart i've ever had. I bought it in Central early in the morning. The egg tarts were really tasty, the pastry was light and the custard was absolutely delicious. Will be back again for sure! I love it!!
