This bakery came highly recommended by a local food blogger and it did not disappoint. What I didn't know is that the Egg Tart is not unique to Hong Kong - it's from Portugal. It's worth the walk and the wait. Get 2 egg tarts...More

Delicious pastry baked to perfection with flavorful egg filing melting in the mouth. Makes a good gift for family if you are a visitor. The cha siu pastry here is also the best I’ve ever tasted.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The

street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
