Why locals recommend it
Simply a hole in the wall that makes the best egg tarts you will possibly ever have. For $2, you get this palm-sized baked buttery flakey tart filled with a velvety sweet custard. The tart shell crumbles as you bite into it and the custard melts in your mouth. This place is a bit unpredictable with their hours, so call in advance to check. If you arrive at 8am, you may be lucky enough to get the fresh custard tarts warm out of the oven. Go on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday early (like 8am) or between 3pm and 5pm. Check in advance to be sure they’re open. It’s cash only.

The HYPE is real folks. This very famous place for Egg Tarts is the bomb, but beware the line can be very long. Go here around 6PM and shouldn't be too long.

Best baked egg custard tarts famously known for with lines out the door in the heart of Chinatown when opened as the owner operated crew take lengthy vacations sometimes. Other items are also worth trying like the coconut tarts, breads, and moon cakes.

For the egg tarts but check their hours because they're closed 50% of the year.
