And for him, it wasn't just any Ah Fook, Ah Keong or Ah Hwa egg tarts mind you. This Governor had to have the Tai Cheong Bakery egg tarts.
Just look at this photo. The egg tarts must be d*mn good for the governor to become such good friends with the owner. One bite & friends forever. So brader brader.
The shop also sells other types of pastries but it doesn't seem like anybody's touching them.
When we got there, there was already a small line of people. Obviously we were not the only tourists there. There were a few Koreans who also managed to find their way to this little egg tart heaven.
In fact, the place was quite easy to find. It's located at 35, Lyndhurst Terrace, Central.
Look at all those boxes. The owner must be making millions. If I'd known that earlier, I'd have considered taking up baking lessons a long time ago. Then you'd also see me buddy buddy with Chris Patten.
And naturally, one's head would grow to this size if we're buddy-buddy-ing along with a Governor.
The difference with the egg tarts here is that the pastry uses almond meal instead of regular flour.
HKD3.50 (RM1.50) for a piece of heavenly bliss.
This is the mother of all egg tarts. "I gave birth to all you tarts out there! Pay your respects!"
