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!

I had heard a lot about the famous Egg Tarts of Hong Kong and wanted to try them. On my third trip to HK, I managed to finally dig into these delicacies. I was lucky to get the piping hot tarts which tasted simply awesome! I believe that Tai Cheong Bakery is the pioneer of cookie-crust egg tarts and I... More

This is apparently the place to go to for egg tarts. We dropped by for a quick bite and loved the fresh from the oven egg tarts. The custard was really smooth and silky although I would have preferred a stronger 'egg taste'. But still worth trying.

They serve the tarts hot and fresh. the pastry is sweet and flaky and the centre is silky smooth, my only regret is that i did not discover this place sooner as I would have gone back every day!

This place was located close to our hotel and was great for getting breakfast food at. Egg tarts plus other stuff made an excellent breakfast for us. Highly recommended.
