Famous Egg Tarts From Hongkong (a box of four: $7.60)

With the exception of the cheese ones from Baked located in ION Orchard, I have never been into this sort of tarts all that much. However, since there was no queue at the raved-about Tai Cheong Bakery store in Takashimaya, I decided to pick up a box of four.
My personal take on them is they are good but that gleaming filling is on the sweet side. In contrast with Baked's fluffily soft texture (which I love), this is closer to that of a jelly pudding. I did enjoy the crumbly crust for its buttery taste though. Especially since I ate the tart while it's still warm.

Egg Tarts (4 for $7.60)

After trying this in Hong Kong, nothing else comes close to this perfect, sunshine-y egg tart for me. I'm really glad that the standard here is comparable to the outlets in Hong Kong too.

There's (almost) always a tray of freshly baked batch coming out of the oven, so you have zero excuse of not gobbling this down while it's warm, with the wobbly custard just set atop the buttery crust. โค๏ธ

Perfect Egg Tarts

$7.60 for a box of 4 egg tarts or $1.90 for 1 yummilicous tai Cheong egg tart! The crust is absolutely buttery and the pastry melts in your mouth! The egg feeling is fragrant and not too sweet! Perfect combination! I had 3 at a go ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
Xoxo, wet tissue no have

Tai Cheong Egg Tarts

The crust is a bit of crisp and the egg is smooth and soft. No wonder people would queue for these!

A perfect Egg Tart ่›‹ๆŒž has a Buttery Fragrance that hits you straight out of the oven.

Crumbly & Buttery Pastry Crust with a Wobbly Soft Egg Custard in the centre with the right sweetness is what one should look for. ๐Ÿ˜‹

The Egg Tart (๐Ÿ’ตS$1.90) from Tai Cheong Bakery does serve good Egg Tarts, but is it the best around?? It's for you to decide. ๐Ÿค”

Hong Kong Iced Milk Tea and Hong Kong Style Hot Lemon Cola
The tea fragrance is stronger, with lesser emphasis on the milk as compared to the usual milk tea we have in Singapore.

The hot lemon cola is something that you would rarely find in Singapore as well!

[NEW BLOG POST] Tai Cheong Bakery Cha Chaan Teng Opens @ Holland Village!

As far as we knew the Tai Cheong Bakery that we were familiar with did not have a cha chaan teng in Hong Kong. So we were a bit sceptical at first. However, the quality of food here literally blew us away.

Featuring their three-coloured silky eggs with rice, roast meat & char siew.

I was lucky to pop the piping hot egg tarts that just popped out from the oven into my mouth.

Freshly baked egg tarts ($1.90 for 1, $7.60 for box of 4, minimum order of 4) are indeed eggcellent! The buttery fragrant crust was crumbly and the egg was wobbly, smooth and sweet but not overly. #HotFoodNeverGoesWrong

Instead of those Japanese baked cheese tarts my boy still prefers this traditional #eggtart with flaky crust and soft pudding like egg custard

Bought a box for him from Tai Cheong Bakery while I was in town yesterday and realise they have new packaging too. #cuisineparadiseeatout #burpple #taicheongbakery #foodblogger #foodiesg

Will you queue 45 mins for these #eggtarts at Tai Cheong Bakery?

Maybe yes? No? Buttery and crumbly shortcrust pastry with smooth silky custard filling. Best eaten when you consume them right outta the oven.. it's no wonder the craze still hasn't died down after a few months.

Tai Cheong Egg Tart

Top in my list of what to eat in Hong Kong because the queue and waiting time at Takashimaya is still long. The biscuit base is just right and together with the egg, its smooth and soft, and sooo good. This is way better than Honolulu, or perhaps that is just too flaky for my liking haha. Over in HK, bought this when there is a buy 2 get 1 promotion!

Egg Tart

Buttery fragrant, supple, wobbly soft egg custard encased in a pastry shell. Just the right sweetness. At $1.80 each (min purchase 4) and served piping hot, no wonder the popularity because it really is one great tart. ๐Ÿ’ซ
It is great, no wrong. No wonder the snaking queues. Even the dad who doesn't eat egg tarts took 1 whole piece by himself. Glad I decided to buy on a whim while passing by on a weekday at 3pm. Waiting was 15 mins and checked off the list. Would I queue again? Maybe 15, but not more.

Well spent afternoon with the BFF on her birthday ๐Ÿ˜˜.

We finally got some tc egg tarts only to find that the ones we tried from HK was nicer (btw we queued 45mins for this) ๐Ÿ˜

Tai Cheong Egg Tarts

What seems to be a short queue turns out to be a 40 mins wait. I was the 3rd in line outside the food hall but the queue was moving very slowly because people have to wait for the tarts to be baked fresh out from the oven. The only downside was that the tarts are packed into boxes the moment they get out of the oven hence water vapour are formed within the boxes and the paper box turned flimsy. Make sure to be careful if you are ordering more boxes to take home.

I liked the eggy smooth, wobbly and jelly texture custard with the buttery and crumbly crust but no, Iโ€™m not going to queue more than 15 mins to get this. Letโ€™s hope the queue gets better when everyone is done with trying it. Each person can have a minimum order of 1 box (4 Tarts) and a maximum of 4 Boxes (16 Tarts) ใ€‹$7.60/Box

For Famed Egg Tarts from Hong Kong

The menu at Tai Cheong Bakery, a household name in Hong Kong, is scant but focused. Previously a pop-up at Takashimaya's Food Hall, the bakery has settled for a permanent takeaway counter in Takashimaya's basement two. Look out for its signature teal signboard and long snaking queue โ€” yes, be prepared to wait in line for at least two hours to get your hands on their famous Egg Tarts ($7.60 box of four)! Nothing quite comes close to the sheer buttery, flaky crust and smooth custard filling. Apart from the egg tarts, there are four other offerings on the menu, including a Chicken Pie ($2.80), Char Siew Bolo Bun ($2.20) and a Sponge Cupcake ($1.50).
Avg price: $10 per person
