A short walk from the MRT station. Bakery was nice and service was very prompt. The quality of the egg tarts from Lydhurst Terrace branch is still the best so far.

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
