Home of the last HK last British Governors favourite egg tarts. A favourite of Chris Patten , whose pictures adorns the walls , this place receives free publicity from none other than the Governors himself. Its not the best of all eggtarts in HK , but is one of the better ones.
Smooth sweet custard fills the centre of the pastry shell . This egg tarts are baked fresh daily and non-stop supply of egg tarts awaits hungry peeps each day. At HKD5 each , its competitively priced among others.
The difference in Tai Cheong Bakery and other egg tarts lies in the pastry , which uses almond meal instead of regular flour. Also it isnt the flaky types which is typical in HK style tarts , which resembles an English pies base , which probably explains you why its Chris Pattens favourite. But I love the filling though. But if you like sweet custard filling , you would like it , coz I dont really have a sweet tooth !
Not the best around yet , but still better than most.
