Foursquare Tips

  • A great overall bakery, we especially like the Portuguese egg custard tart and the slices of plain roll cake.
  • (green tea egg tarts) is where it's at!
  • Pick up tongs and a tray in the back and help yourself to the baked goodies. When you have everything you need, set the tray on the counter to get in line to pay or order stuff behind the counter.
  • Bring someone who speaks Cantonese with you every time, takes 3x longer if you don't. Mandarin doesn't always cut it either.
  • $1.45 for a pork bun.
  • Bring a Cantonese speaker or get out your fighting gloves, people mean business here. One of the few places I've found Portuguese style dan tat, which have a way better texture than regular egg tarts
  • $1.25 green tea tart
  • Must get egg custard tarts
  • Great baked goods
  • Best egg custard tarts in Chinatown (pick the Portuguese style one)
  • the tray is very important. it represents your position on line. the ladies behind the counter will only acknowledge people with trays.
  • Have the egg custard( Portuguese style) yumm
  • A very light crust that's just a bit too crumbly for our tastes, but not bad. The filling has a natural pale looking color and tastes like what we are looking for: light, eggy, and not too sweet.
  • Does custom cakes! Delicious and finished on time.
  • They have black sesame soymilk here. Egg tarts could be hit or miss.
  • A+ egg custard tarts.
  • Long lines
  • Red bean bun!
  • Great ice cream cakes that are fun for a birthday celebration. Order the day before for flavors like coffee, mango, WASABI (!!), etc. Vanilla, chocolate, or red bean are available walk-in.
  • Great food cheap prices
