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.

The egg tarts tasted fabulous even to a non-fan like myself. Smooth and silky. Worth the climb up Lyndhurst Terrace. Get them fresh out and warm. Can imagine they'll twice many times as good in winter!

Lovely freshly made egg tarts that were straight from the oven. The multilayer pastry was very crispy. The egg custard was light and sweet. Perfect balance between the tart and the egg.

This egg tart is seriously superb. I went to Macau before, and didn't get the chance to buy any egg tarts there. So in HK I searched online where I can buy the best egg tart, and Tai Cheong Bakery popped out. This bakery is not very far from SoHo area, and I got there by riding the Mid-Levels Travelator...

In the middle of the day we saw a long line, obviously all locals. TV Food Travellers say if you see a long line check it out. We did that in Tokyo and had the best noodles ever. My husband stood in line while i went to the front and it was "egg tarts". The line moved fast and we... More

Honestly, I expected more from Tai Cheong's egg tarts because of the hype. However, I find it just so-so and oily. In my opinion, Maria's egg tarts are better. :)
