Tai Cheong Bakery - Famous Hong Kong Egg Tarts Shop Opening In Singapore, Takashimaya
by

[Updated July 2016] An obvious tart fever in Singapore. First Japan’s BAKE Cheese Tart at ION Orchard which attracted a 2-3 hour queue, Hong Kong’s Honolulu at Centrepoint, and Tai Cheong Egg Tarts has opened in Singapore at Takashimaya basement food hall.

Read review of Tai Cheong Bakery Singapore Takashimaya.

The Egg Tarts in Singapore goes for $7.60 for 4 pieces, Chicken Pie $2.80 per piece and Cocktail Bun at $1.80 per piece.

As an additional note: while the tarts contain no pork or lard, they are not Halal-certified.

[Hong Kong] The popular Tai Cheong Bakery 泰昌餅家 started in at Lyndhurst Terrace, Central Hong Kong way back in 1954, and is famed for its one-of-a-kind egg tarts.

The Dessert Chef Mr Au Yeung created this unique cookie-based tarts, filled the shells with thick egg liquid, and kept them baked for 13 minutes. Fresh.

The last British governor Chris Patten was said to be a fan, and called them “the best Egg Tarts in the world”. That propelled Tai Cheong to immense media fame.

Tai Cheong Bakery then moved to another location and expanded to several other branches over the years. The Central store continues to attract queues all the time, but can be tough to find if you are a first timer.

Their egg tarts came with smooth bright yellow egg custard, seated inside crumbly fragrant buttery crust.

I recommend getting them freshly baked, and eat them warm right outside the store! (super shiok especially when the weather is cold.)

  1. Hi Daniel,

    The opening hours for the popup stall is only till 10.30am?

    • It starts from 10am – 10:30am or so, they cannot confirm, as would depend on what time the oven heats up (accordingly).

    This is the best egg tart I ever tasted! I can easily tear the egg tart into small piece with my thumb and fingers.

    I was amazed at the long queue at Takashimaya. I wouldn’t pay $1.90 for an egg tart, regardless of where it comes from. Last week, a friend gave me a box of four tarts. After eating one, I feel that it is grossly over-rated. The pastry is nothing but a butter pastry which is used for fruit tarts. Any pastry made with butter will taste the same. It is too crumbly and therefore lacks body. The egg filling is no different from other egg tarts which I can get at Chinatown for $1 to $1.20 each. They are also made according to the Hong Kong recipe. Hence, the long queues are not justifiable. It is simply herd instinct.

    • I am amazed too. The queue currently stretches all the way outside. Maybe about 30-50 pax on average each time.
