tai cheong bakery 泰昌饼家 is a popular pastry chain in hong kong selling the popular egg tarts since 1954, which the former hong kong governor, chris patten, famously proclaimed “the best in the world”…lol!^^

currently it comes under the tao heung group, one of the mid-price restaurant groups i frequent in hong kong.

following was what i recorded on my blog for a hong kong trip in 2013

  • we came down from the escalator at Lyndhurst Terrace & found the famous Tai Cheung egg tart shop, apparently a Chris Patten favourite. 🙂 we each took a HK$3.50 egg tart each. it was good. egg tart not something I particularly fancied or craved for but I enjoyed it all the same. 🙂

i tried it again at the outlet next to the trickeye mesuem at victoria peak just before a very pleasant peak circle walk in our jan 2016 trip & recorded

  • 1 level down there was tai cheong 泰昌饼家, a brand of tao heung group. this the one where the stall at lyndhurst terrace the last british governor chris patten claimed had the best egg tarts in hong kong. trust the guy to know what is a good egg tart? we tried the egg tart. i have done this more than once at tai cheong 泰昌饼家 including the one at lyndhurst terrace but it was still so-so for me, a little too sweet & nothing c/w the burnt portuguese egg tart.

So basically i am not a fan la…

& c/w portuguese egg tarts, like natas (portuguese egg tarts) at pasteis de belem in lisbon, i think the latter is better la…

anyway today there was no natas to compare.  i put one egg tart to the tabletop oven & baked for 3mins. it was very good actually, the pastry was crispy & flaky & tasted good, and the custard was not too sweet. a bit better than i expected as i was not expecting to like it a lot for a start. so i think pretty ok. just that i wouldn’t take too many, like 1 or max 2.

& c/w my friends pineapple tarts & almond cookies, my friend’s a lot more satisfying for me la…i have been eating them everyday!
