    Their egg tarts are known to be one of the best in HK. Besides the creamy and velvety smooth custard, what truly make Tai Cheong’s egg tart special and different from others is the cookie-crust base. Read more

    Best Egg Tarts in HK, attested by Chris Patten and yours truly. Eggy, jiggly, and mildly sweet, Tai Cheong reigns supreme over the island's 'dan ta' offerings! Beignets ('sa yung') also tasty treat.

    Best egg tart I've ever had, left me wanting seconds! And... I'm not even an egg tart fan! Although other tips say $5 per egg tart, it is now $6 per egg tart. Gotta love inflation.

    Best Egg Tarts in Hong Kong - The egg tarts literally melt in your mouth. The crispy crust & creamy egg custard tasted better than those sold in Macau! Recommended by Chris Patten, last Governor!

    While I prefer egg tarts made with puff pastry, these are probably the best pie crust egg tarts I've had to date. Eat it while it's still hot!

    The Egg tarts are good and I grew up eating them but now the tourist hype is making it a bit cray cray with lines outside. The Korean tourists LOVES them!!

    Both the custard and pastry had excellent texture. The only drawback is the overall sweetness over my version of perfection...

    This is an awesome egg tart especially when it's still hot and fresh out of the oven! Because of the high turnover this happens throughout the day!

    Egg tarts - the filling is great! So thick and eggy. The pastry is of the short variety instead of puff. Found the coconut tart a bit dry.
  • Sabrina M.
    The egg tarts are so damn good. Melty warm custard on flaky buttery crust good.

    Wish I'd known to eat my egg tarts warm. Sounds like warm egg tarts are awesome and the ones I had three hours later are just decent.

    A must-try true local delicacy with an absolutely divine flakey crust. Have one hot right out of the oven!

    It seems like many people overlooked their Sugar Puff! It's so good! Their Egg Tart is a bit overrated, I like Honolulu Central's much more.

    There are ton of Korean tourists that come here in the afternoon, which is when a line starts to build up. Egg tarts are average. Go to a bakery in Kowloon for an equal, if not better, tasting one.

    Their egg tart is classic - getting one and eating it immediately outside the store has become a scene of the street

    Former Governor Chris Patten's favorite. Egg tarts are good. Not flakey. Some people may not like them. I like flakey.

    Best egg tarts in HK is only selling for HKD$5! For the best experience, eat them right after you buy them, it's yummilicious!
