Tai Cheung Bakery: "Yummy Egg Tarts!" Tai Cheung Bakery Tip by monaco05

Tai Cheung Bakery, Hong Kong: 4 reviews and 4 photos

This egg tart shop was made famous by the patronage of Chris Patten (the last British governor of HK) - apparently he loved the egg tarts here.

I finally made it here on the last day I was in HK and bought one to try. It cost just HK$3.80 (S$0.75)! Ok, I'll admit it - I was in such a rush to try it that I totally forgot to take a picture...

but take my word for it, it was delicious! The pastry was super flaky and the custard still warm and wobbly - it totally fell apart in the paper bag that it was in. Totally wished I had found this place earlier so that I could have had more!

Another place to add to my list of "must go the next time I'm back in HK" places...
