Tai Cheung Bakery Egg Tarts, Central , Hong Kong

After our wantan noodles lunch, we walked over to nearby Lindhurst Terrace to some famous egg tarts..
Tai Cheung Bakery serves egg tarts so tasty that even Chris Patten's a loyal fan when he was in Hong Kong. We got the egg tarts; freshly baked as it was still very warm when we ate it. Tai Cheung's egg tart is not the flaky pastry type though. And it's by far the best pastry crust egg tart I have ever tasted; the egg custard's creamy, velvety and rich...felt like golden silk gliding down my throat. The pastry was so buttery and almost melt in mouth with every bite. Later I read in a HK food magazine that they used almond meal rather than regular flour, hence the lovely fragrance and texture of the pastry.
Lucky me, I was staying nearby, so I get to eat this fantabulous egg tarts a few more times before I left Hong Kong :)

Tai Cheung Bakery is located at 35, Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong. HKD5 per tart, guess the price was raised recently? (think previously was only HKD3.50)
