You might not think this bakery is particular special while walking by, except for its dark and updated décor.  But the real treat are the egg tarts.  The crust is among the best I've ever had on an egg tart, and the tart itself is...More

You have to savour these egg tarts at the shop and it melts in your mouth! One can also buy them back for tea but the freshness is lost. There are other biscuits sold here too. We bought the Malay cake. Tasted ok too!

Egg tarts are almost iconic in HK. Tai Cheong is one of the popular name here. There are two types of egg tarts: buttery or flaky/crispy. I find the flaky one more 'fragnant'. Other pastry, buns, cakes and drinks also available.

The place to be to taste the egg tarte. Not that special, but as we were in Hong Kong, we needed to taste the local specialities. The price per egg tart is 9 hkd, so that is no objection.

A small old egg tart bakery in the middle of Central District. It is yummy and the crust is flaky. Service is very fast which is good.

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.

The custard and the buttery pastry is a perfect combination especially if you couple it with a cup of coffee. Eat it when it is still warm👍

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
