    Try one of the dan tats—a sweet egg custard pastry that's crunchy on the outside and supple within—and you'll see why this bakery is a requisite stop on everyone's dining bucket list.

    Opens at 7:30am. Supposed to be one of the best egg tarts in the city.

    I tried the egg tart here. It was freshly baked. Egg texture is nice, the crust is also good. I prefer the other type of crust that is flaky instead. But overall a very good egg tart. No place to sit. You just buy and go.

    Egg tarts at HKD9 are a steal and the sugar puff is also their traditional favourite. Eagerly awaiting to try their custard mooncake and standard lotus paste mooncake.

    You might not think this bakery is particular special while walking by, except for its dark and updated décor.  But the real treat are the egg tarts.  The crust is among the best I've ever had on an egg tart, and the tart itself is just the right sweetness and has a wonderful texture.  The bakery sells other items as well, but I didn't try them then – given the egg tarts though, I would have if I had the room!

    You have to savour these egg tarts at the shop and it melts in your mouth! One can also buy them back for tea but the freshness is lost. There are other biscuits sold here too. We bought the Malay cake. Tasted ok too!

    I had been ate eggs tart in Macao and I wanna try to eat again in Hong Kong. The most people said it's different taste. I was going to Tai Cheoung bakery shop at Central (Hong Kong) that you will be seen many people in front of shop. An eggs tart is nine dollar Hong Kong. After I've already eaten, I know It's different. You will get salt taste around border and smooth in center.

    Egg tarts are almost iconic in HK. Tai Cheong is one of the popular name here. There are two types of egg tarts: buttery or flaky/crispy. I find the flaky one more 'fragnant'. Other pastry, buns, cakes and drinks also available.

    The place to be to taste the egg tarte. Not that special, but as we were in Hong Kong, we needed to taste the local specialities. The price per egg tart is 9 hkd, so that is no objection.

    A small old egg tart bakery in the middle of Central District. It is yummy and the crust is flaky. Service is very fast which is good.

    I never fail to grab my egg tarts fix from tai Cheong every time I'm in Hong Kong! It's always freshly made and hard to resist eating it on the spot when the custard is warm. It uses a traditional butter crust pastry that is crumbly and flaky. Be sure to buy half a dozen at least 😁

    Their business hours seem to have changed, so when I got there past 7:30 it was still closed. Visitors take note! The egg tarts were worth the wait though. Still warm, pastry light and fluffy and custard, thick.

    The custard and the buttery pastry is a perfect combination especially if you couple it with a cup of coffee. Eat it when it is still warm👍

    I have to say that it is very lucky, I bought the egg tart just out of the oven, it's really hot and smell great! Once I bit the egg tart, the side is crispy but the egg is creamy and taste delicious! It's a MUST when I visit Hong Kong!

    My first egg tart was in Macau. We read that this place, Tai Cheong Bakery had the best egg tarts in the universe, just kidding. But this was on a lot of peoples list for best egg tart. I bought one egg tart, was already stuffed from eating so much earlier in the day. The tart was warm, soft and delicious. The line just to order one was well worth it. Egg tarts a good snack, eat them while you see the city

    Since the last Britsh Governor, Chris Patten, was photographed getting his egg tarts from here, this little bakery has become one of the most famous outlets for this HK delicacy, although they've been around for much longer than that! The location is very Central, and therefore right in the heart of tourist land which makes it very convenient for the visiting traveller. The egg tarts are best warm, and cost $9 each. The pastry is crumbly and shortbready as compared to the puff pastry type casing found in other tarts. I enjoyed my egg tart!!

    Went to the Dragon centre branch . They have 2 different style of egg tarts - flaky crust and hardier crust. I prefer the latter. At HKD6.5 each. Overseas, they are 2-3x more i heard

    Despite the hype, the pastry and custard were too firm for our liking. Much better egg tarts can be had at many of the other bakeries in HK.

    their famous egg tarts taste good, but we don't understand the fuss about this place. Nothing really special - we have found better tasting egg tarts in small bakeries a bit away from the main tourist hot spots.

    Took mum to both Honolulu cafe and Tai Cheong for their respective egg tarts. Mum prefers the cookie dough egg tart crust texture here more than the one over at Honolulu. Each to their owns i guess.

    If you like the Portuguese Tarts from Macau - try these. its fillings are simply full, yet not overly sweet. the cup, tart - crispy yet not flaky. OMG!

    Buttery crust and soft egg served hot. It costs only 7 hkd each. The same one in Singapore costs triple the price!
