Due to the crowd building up in the restaurant, I took the option of takeaway instead, with just two of those famed egg tarts. And I only actually ate those two egg tarts more than 12 hours later, when I was leaving HK, lounging around in the departure hall of the airport in the wee hours of the night with... More

Tried one each, from egg tart to BBQ pie, red bean cake etc. Simple fantastic food source on the go. Eat it while it's hot even if they r located within MTR stations. A good way to experience HK food & HK culture. Do not expect great service btw as it's fast food.

Perhaps it was the hunger and tiredness from walking the endless lanes of Hong Kong but the egg tarts really hit the spot. Warm and cripsy pastry with buttery and sweet eggy center. A good place to hunt down whilst exploring Hong Kong! No sitting area but just stand around outside the shop and soak in the atmosphere.

I love egg tarts so therefore I'm reviewing their egg tarts only. I've been eating egg tarts all my life, from east to west, Hong Kong to New York. Personally I prefer a mildly sweet egg custard wrapped in layers of flaky airy thin crusts. Tai Cheong's egg tarts by comparison is average at best due to its crust, a... More

Love it! My 2nd visit after 7 years, still amaze but the 1st bite. Can't wait to go back to the hotel, remember to eat it right away outside while it is warm. Do go too late, sold out very fast.

Visited this bakery shop just last week, and still reminiscing the yummy and watery egg tarts! It is located just a short walk from the Central MTR, and we went there after dimsum at Lin Heung. The egg tart here cost $6HKD, just about $2HKD more from the neighbourhood bakeries. It tastes best when hot, must try the chicken pie... More

Only went there for the egg tarts. Well worth the trip and ate 6 of them and packed 10 more for my family. Didn't try any other stuff as my eyes were only on the egg tarts...

The first time I tried Tai Cheong Bakery's egg tart was 5 years ago, and it was the best egg tart I've eaten especially when its pipping hot! My husband and I came to HK again 5 years later, and we went all the way just to eat have the egg tarts! The texture is smooth and it's straight out... More

Tai Cheong's egg tarts are my favorite so far. Must try if you pass by one branch. The egg tarts are usually freshly made, silky, not too sweet, and with a crispy crust!
