The reviews here are right on. I love egg tarts and wondered where to get them in Shanghai. Well, last week, we found the one described in a previous review. I bought a box of six and nearly died--they are so heavenly. Just wonderful. I just located one in the Cloud 9 mall west of Zhongshan Park and another one... More

Yummy good value Portuguese egg tarts (only Y4.50) on special. All the cakes looked good too and I bought the special Year of the Horse panna cotta with a horse dish - nice souvenir to take home!

Famius for their Baked egg tarts, the Portuguese type, in Shanghai. Usually always a line so it's nice and hot! Hits the spot everytime.

this place sells the all time no1, best-est egg tarts in Shanghai. time yourself and wait at the counter for the moment when a new batch is made before you buy, and consume immediately. (filling is HOT)

Lillians cake has an amazing egg tart. It was not so easy to find the quiosk at HuaiHuai Lu, it is inside a chinese food shop, but you can buy it directly from the window facing the sidewalk. It cost around RMB 4 each. Make sure you buy at least a box of 4:)

Ive tried egg tarts from all over Asia and i gotta admit, these topped it! It was so good, i ordered another one. The price is reasonable too.

The egg tarts are DA BEST! Nevermind that supposedly Kentucky Fried Chicken in China won the blind taste test for egg tarts. Lillian Cakes is DA BEST! (and cheaper than KFC's too). If only the cakes would survive being hand-carried back to the States, I would have.

I am not usually big on sweets. But the Portuguese egg custard tarts at Lillian's are absolutely to die for. I can't think of a better thing that I have ever tasted in my life. They are small and cheap (3.5 RMB) and sold at little storefronts right on the sidewalk. In other words, they are so easy to get... More
