During my last visit in Hong Kong, there was always a line outside the bakery whenever I passed by. I finally had the chance to try it on my last day. The line actually moved pretty quickly. And the egg tart is definitely well worth...More

Emphatically the best of hundreds of egg custard tarts I've been privileged to devour. Pastry seems massively better than what I'm used to. This stands out way above all the culinary experiences I've had in HK. I'll be on a mission to Tai Cheong's one...More

This place is known for their egg tarts. The egg tarts are a lot bigger here than in the US. Not too sweet, but still delicious.

Tai Cheong is certainly the most well known bakery in Hong Kong. Its egg tart is unrivalled and unbeatable. Do make a visit to the original store as this is the only place for handmade pastries. It can be very crowded with tourists so come...More

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
