Decent but not up to hype

Right in the ferry terminal, this was a nice snack to pick up for the 10min ferry ride across the harbor. It seems to be made pretty fresh, the outside is crispy and inside is warm and gooey. It was quite good but I wasn't blown away given that this was suppose to be the best egg tart in town.... read more

The egg tarts has a crispy outer crust, just like the pastry type. The crust make you feels like you are eating a freshly baked biscuit with some salt on it, which makes it taste just nice. Also, the egg custard taste good. It is soft and melts right in your mouth. 1 bite isnt enough, i bet you gonna... More

It was slated to be one of the best egg tarts in Hong Kong. However, we found that the crust was too thick though the egg custard was really soft and creamy. We tried two pies - BBQ and chicken. The BBQ pork filling taste better than the chicken. The fillings were too little compared to the crust. I would... More

My brother-in-law recommended this bakery to us. We tried the custard tarts and they were superb. I can have 3 of those without a problem, it's that good.

Excuse the pun please, they are just that good. Not too sweet the egg protein goodness shines through so strongly one can nearly, but obviously not quite, believe an egg tart makes for an healthy breakfast. A long with the delicious seafood based meal I had at nearby Monogamous, under the mid level escalator, a reason I`m yearning to return... More

Our fabulous guide, Shermone with Chris Rowthorn tours recommended Tai Cheong Bakery for their famous egg tarts. It was quite fantastic, and, definitely nothing like anything we had tried before. The soft egg-filling was wrapped in a solid pastry crust. The tart wasn't too sweet, and, it wasn't oily, it was just perfect. We were so glad our incredible guide... More

We were there at about 2.30pm, there was a group of tourist in front of the entrance, and I managed to bought the egg tarts without waiting. It cost HKD 6/tart. The crust is crispy, tart is not so sweet and not oily. Delicious!

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.
