I could pass Lillian Cakes and buy an egg-tart to eat-on-the-go. Or I sometimes buy a box full for the office when I feel generous. Either way, picking up an eggtart or two from Lillian Cakes is a joyful activity. Try them...

This place is famous for its Portuguese egg tarts but I also like the seasonal novelties. Last year it was a cute horse dish with pannacotta; this year I like the sheep dish with the mousse. It is expensive for China but worth it.

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.

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:)
