Everyone looks inside to see what the long line is for. On a typical Saturday at 4:00, the line is a 40 minute wait. You'll see people on the sidewalk outside eatting some of the goods. Is it worth it, yes. THE item is a...More

I came here around 3:30 pm and lined up for half an hour to try the egg tarts. The texture and taste of the egg custard is excellent. The custard has a strong eggy flavor without being too sweet, and it has a smooth, creamy...More
