My walking guide insisted we come here even though I was stuffed from our previous restaurant. She explained that it was a famous, old bakery (but now a chain) in Hong Kong and the last UK appointed governor loved the egg tarts. Then when I was just going to take my egg tart for later she insisted I eat it... More

These delicious innocent looking stuff definitely got sold out fast, thus, we had to wait for the next batch. These freshly baked instantly captured our hearts from the first bite. Crispy tart with smooth center. A few flavours for selection, we chose the original and cheese. Surely the best egg tart ever.

I was expecting the best, it was good, but not the best I've taste. The custard has a jelly like consistency, instead of the creamy custardy type which I prefer.

So glad there are so many branches around in Hong Kong now that the Lydhurst branch is not queuing like crazy anymore. The egg tart has remained it's standard and it's forever so good, so good to the extend that it melts in your mouth! A definite must try in Hong Kong! One other thing not to be missed is... More

This is a famous, old-school bakery in Hong Kong, which was made more popular since the last UK appointed governor visited back in the 90s. Now, it's a chain in Hong Kong, and they have opened shops at many places, such as the Tsim Sha Tsui ferry terminal, Wan Chai, etc. A lot of people come here for the egg... More

They are so warm with a flakey crust and buttery custard filling. So small you should have three or five or ten!

Very good little tarts and pastries. You owe it to yourself to try the egg tarts here when visiting Hong Kong. Crispy and gooey, and packed with sugar. The staff isn't overly friendly and the place is tiny, making it hard to get an order in when busy. Other than the tarts, there isn't much on the menu.
