Their business hours seem to have changed, so when I got there past 7:30 it was still closed. Visitors take note! The egg tarts were worth the wait though. Still warm, pastry light and fluffy and custard, thick.

Despite the hype, the pastry and custard were too firm for our liking. Much better egg tarts can be had at many of the other bakeries in HK.

their famous egg tarts taste good, but we don't understand the fuss about this place. Nothing really special - we have found better tasting egg tarts in small bakeries a bit away from the main tourist hot spots.

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
