Lots of tourists visiting this bakery. the decor is nice, very IG worthy. The eggtart is good. But I won't call it the best that I've had as personally I prefer very thin crust and more custard. Still a HK icon thats worth visiting

Fan of Tai Cheong since 2008. Must-eat every time I'm in Hong Kong. Must eat egg tart. Also bought a dozen home, had to hand-carry back.

This small, very busy bakery was located a block from our hotel, and we went morning after we found it. Known for their famous egg tarts, we found them addictive! Light flaky crust, with a creamy filing, not too sweet..... in fact just about perfect. The Sa Yung are a close second. These beignet like crispy gems are mouthwatering. Expect... More

for me, Lord Stow's bakery egg tarts which is located in Macau are way more delicious compare to Tai Cheong bakery in HK. You must eat it while it's still hot, so, cannot give it as a present. But with Lord stow's it can last up to 2 days (maximum) with taste still intact even if you dont put it... More

The egg tart smell so good and attracted me to walk to Tai Cheong bakery when I step out from star ferry. No doubt this so tasty especially fresh out from the oven. It's cost HKD7 each tart. For me is reasonable price as living standard is high in Hong Kong HKD 7 per tart consider cheap. Must eat! It's... More

This bakery is famous for egg tart because a former governor of Hong Kong has a photo eating one there. However the original bakery has changed ownership with more outlets opened. The quality is just average and you can find similar one in other cake shops.

Not a very large store but the egg tarts are fresh and delicious. They were even selling moon cakes in collaboration with a local retailer so the packaging ranged from classic to modern. Wonderful location if you want to hit up Man Mo Temple and other locations in Central.

Enjoyed our egg tarts from this bakery. Very flaky and crumbly she'll with a great tasting egg custard. Although the egg tarts are more than your average egg tarts but well worth the money in my opinion. I think the wife cake was excellent as well with a flaky crust and good filling. Chicken and Bacon/Cheese/mushroom pie was tasty and... More

It was a perfect egg tart combination. I tried it warm and cold. I honestly preferred it cold. It was worth the hike.

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.
