One thing though that I never really got around to doing when in Hong Kong is to have breakfast at a cha chaan teng. This is because of two things: Paul and I rarely get to wake up really early to make it to breakfast or if ever we're up and ready for breakfast, we would always go for congee instead -- one thing that the both of us grew up having during our respective trips to Hong Kong when we were kids.
For dessert, of course we had Tai Cheong Signature Egg Tarts! Hooray! Aside from the Original (S$1.90) flavored one, we had the Coconut Tart (S$2.50) and the localized Durian & Cheese Tart (S$3.60). I'm a durian fan so I might sound biased but the Durian & Cheese was my favorite among the three. It's unique and the sweet durian flavor went very well with the slightly salty kick from the cheese filling. This flavor is unique only to the Holland Village outlet so it's one thing you shouldn't miss when you're here. Be sure to grab a box on your way out to enjoy at home! Do note though that there's a limit of 16 pieces per customer as they can only bake a limited amount of tarts per day.
I really had a great time visiting Tai Cheong Bakery's Cha Chaan Teng for the first time and I'll surely be back for more! I just love that the dishes were priced so reasonably and guess what, it's free of service charge too.
Check out Tai Cheong Bakery at 31 Lorong Liput, Singapore 277742. Unfortunately, reservations are not allowed so be sure to head there early as seating will be on a first-come-first serve basis.
