So far the best egg tart I've tried in Hong Kong. A visit to Tai Cheong bakery after wan ton noodles at Mak Noodles is a routine, every time I'm in Hong Kong. The pastry is buttery crisp, and must mention the egg filling in the center. So soft and satisfying, yet not too sweet. Remember must eat it while... More

Best egg tart in Hong Kong? Not so sure. Maybe it's a personal preference, but I very much prefer my egg tarts with a puffed pastry crust. If someone would marry the almond steamed egg custard from The Australian Dairy Company and put it on a nice fluffy puffed pastry, I reckon that may be the best egg tart in... More

Crispy on the outside, and fluffy, sweet, and light on the inside. You'll want to eat more than one.

This may seem like an odd place to find the best egg pastry in Hong Kong, but it is very, very good. If you have time to order one or two before your boat leaves, then I highly recommend it.

My friends and I tried various egg tarts while visiting Hong Kong and we will give Tai Cheong our vote for the best egg tart in Hong Kong! The egg tart is tasty, right level of sweetness. Crust is lightly salted, crispy ... yummy yummy. A must try! At HK$7 per piece, it is still consider a affordable snack.

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.

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.
