“HK egg tarts - YUM”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This is one of my favourite tarts in Hong Kong. Try it yourself and you will love it. I bought several of them at the Star Ferry's waiting area in Tsim Sha Tsui (where the ferry was heading to Central). The egg tarts were fresh and yummy. It's not easy to find this type of egg tarts in Hong Kong and it's a lot better than other major bakery shops such as St. Honore or Maxim's.

“absolutely delicious”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Came here many years ago and the egg tarts are still as great as ever. The pastry is light and doesn't feel too heavy or dense like some others. Nice balance with the creamy egg custard and we loved it!

“Best Eggtarts Ever”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We knew we had to get egg tarts from here before we came to Hong Kong based on our research so when we came across it we were very excited to try the egg tarts. We were not disappointed. The egg tarts were so good - something about them just makes you want to keep eating them. We keep thinking about them and are thinking we have to make a trip back to Hong Kong just for these egg tarts! (I tried one of the rice cakes too - not as good so stick with the egg tarts!).

“Best Classic Cantonese Egg Tarts”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

The classic Cantonese egg tarts mostly come in "biscuit" base, but you can also find puff pastry bases in many bakeries all over HK. They differ from Portuguese egg tarts (not as sweet )and its crust is not meant to be as crunchy . If you have a sweet tooth, Portuguese ET is definitely your type of egg tart.

Tai Cheong makes the best cantonese egg tarts I have ever tasted. If its good enough for the last British governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten, its definitely good enough for me.

Tai Cheong has many outlets, but the one in Central tastes the best. Its so good because, its custard tastes very "eggy" and pastry is not dry and of the right thickness.
