FOOD: Tai Cheong Bakery Opens in Holland Village!


Hong Kong Tai Cheong egg tarts was previously only available in a food kiosk in Takashimaya only. But last year, Tai Cheong Bakery opens their first overseas dine-in concept in Holland Village!

I could feel the authentic Hong Kong-style teahouse the moment I stepped into the cafeĀ and I wanted to try everything on the menu. You will be glad to know that they do not impost service charge and the prices you see on the menu is inclusive of GST already.

Let me show you some of the dishes I tried and why I love them.

Three Coloured Silky Eggs with Rice ($9.90): A plate of steamed rice with a smooth, barely set three-egg omelette crowned with two toppings: Roasted Prok & Prawns, Roasted Pork & Beef, Roasted Pork & Crispy Pork Belly.

Three-Egg Macaroni Soup with Luncheon Meat ($8.50): The tomato soup is not as strong as I had imagined it to be. I like the light tomato taste and the strips of crispy fried luncheon meat.

Scrambled Egg Toast Stack with Chicken Chop ($9.50): The scramble eggs isn’t those buttery eggs you find outside so I thought it is a lot healthier. Look closely at the bottom and you will be able to find a pan-grilled chicken chop and creamy mushroom sauce at the bottom.

French pain perdu ($6.50): This was surprisingly my favorite among all because of the 100% pure maple syrup. I love how the fluffy white bread taste after a coat of egg wash with milk. I honestly don’t mind a second helping for this.

This cafe is perfect for a weekend family brunch! They sell famous Hong Kong tarts too – Egg Tart ($2.50) that comes with a unique butter cookie-like crust, Durian & Cheese Tart (to cater to local delights; $3.60) and Coconut Tart ($2.50). However, there is a limitation when it comes to the egg tarts. Each person can only buy 16 pieces of egg tarts for takeaway and 2 pieces for dine in. This isn’t such a bad idea after all. At least the people behind you gets to try them too!
