This is just everything – this melty blend of liquid nitrogen-frozen Aussie and Italian cheeses set in a crisp, crumbly, buttery tart shell, then sprinkled with sugar and torched to achieve a thin, crackly caramelised top.

Best thing I've had in Hong Kong so far.

Buttery crunchy short crust w that thick egg custard that melts in your mouth. Didn't go join the crazy queue when they had a pop up in Singapore because nothing beats the original! #Burpple #eggtart #taicheongbakery #hongkong

Beef brisket noodles in clear broth. The soup is super good! Beefy umaminess. Though my tongue got a bit dry after that.. Off to a good start to turn ourselves into balls. @timchee #burpple #hongkong #beefnoodles #sisterwahbeefnoodles

Hong Kong is a very walkable city. Put food into the equation and walking around doesn't seem that bad. When you're tired, just pop into one of their food stores! Our before dinner pit stop because walking from mongkok to yau ma tei was a bit tiring. Their version of the milk pudding is super milky. Unlike the milky egg white pudding offered at other "dairy companies". Definitely good for ppl that love milk but I prefer milky egg white pudding rather than milk milk pudding!

As you bring the coffee to your mouth, you gets whiff of overpowering sweetness and start to wonder whether it's a bad idea but as the coffee hits your mouth, it's smooth coffee just with a hint of sweetness! The milk is steamed and froth then topped w a little brown sugar. The brown sugar really goes a long way. Coffee academics did a pretty good job in SG, but I'll always love the ambience at their flagship store in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. The woody interior, the lights that are draped along the window, and that little window opening ledge. It allows you to hide away from the hustle & bustle of Hong Kong, but doesn't shut you off completely ☕️
