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

Went there to check out the famous egg tarts, yes they were fantastic. But, we were hungry so we tried a few more things. We had the BBQ pork pie, which was good tho a little sweet and oily and also to be different the salty egg tart and the preserved egg tart. These were encased in lotus (I believe,... 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!

We were lucky to be at Tai Cheong on a Monday afternoon with no queue! Talk about perfect timing. An egg tart costs HKD 6; as I was biting into the pastry crust, I could feel the buttery aroma (which is my favorite for pastries) and the soft egg filling that melts in the mouth. It was so good and... More

A must to try when u visit HK even if u are already very full. The egg tarts are fresh from oven! The crust is crispy and egg custard is soft and a very nice fragrance.

Best egg tarts I've ever had. Best eaten on the spot piping hot straight out of the oven. Got a few boxes back - still tastes good after heating up before eating, but nothing can beat the ones fresh out from the oven

Bought two dozens of it back to Singapore on my last day, and the mere 3 plus hour flight back home ensured the egg tarts were still fresh when we had our first try of them. The crust was as fresh and crunchy. The egg was incredibly soft and tasty, made a great food item to buy back along with... More

The egg tarts are pretty good, with a strong buttery flavor. I also got the chicken pie and the BBQ pie, which unfortunately were not as good. We also bought some food-stuff (butterfly crisps, seaweed egg rolls) for the in-laws that are packaged in nice-looking boxes…don’t really know how they taste like but they sure look nice. The good part... More

Went back to Hongkong to look for this egg tart. As good. This is the traditional type of tart, not the flaky sort or portugese style. Solid pastry crust which I prefer. Fragrant egg custard. Best eaten warm. I have not found a matching quality after these years.
