We were lucky enough to get a fresh batch of the egg tarts and they were hot to the touch. The pastry portion was buttery and flaky, but the egg was silky and blissfully enchanting. Instant bliss notes permeated my being after having this. The chicken pastry was equally as amazing, and may I even say that it was daring... More

Went to the Mongkok East outlet to get the egg tarts at night and there was a promotion of buy 2 get 1 free. I packed a total of 9 pcs and only paid for 36HKD. So worth it! Egg tart is yummy too if you really like egg tarts with those biscuit kind of crust.

This is the second time in a few years trying this store. The first place I had great memories of an egg tart that was incredible. Then recently returned and wasn't as thrilled. It was just average, the crust was cookie-like, but it seemed a bit bland. At $8HK it's expensive - I would go for a freshly baked one... More

Famous for their egg tart. Did not like the tart pastry but the thick eggy custard was ok. For HKD7.50 for one egg tart is too expensive.

Highly raved egg tarts - Their egg tarts are eggy and buttery crust. We prefer Honolulu though. Is just a street away!

Had to try one as they are considered a traditional snack. Had the egg tart with blueberry still warm from the oven. Absolutely beautiful. Didn't spoil the moment by looking for the calorie content! Just enjoy.

This is still my favorite egg tart place. Best in the mornings as they are coming warm out of the oven. The custard is not too sweet and the shell is a buttery cookie crust. It's sooo good!

Tai Cheong Bakery really isn't known for much else apart from its egg tarts. While delicious, I personally preferred the egg tarts from Honolulu Coffee Shop (just one street away and also located in Wan Chai). Tai Cheong's egg tarts were lighter but i preferred Honolulu's egg tarts which had a heavier and more full-bodied taste. They're located within 2... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
