What to expect: acetic, hard crust bread with a chewy texture, speckled with linseeds and sunflower seeds. Mostly enjoyable, but the tartness was obtrusive and perhaps taken a little too far: the best sourdough should be infused with only the subtlest notes of tanginess. I recommend taking a slice or two before your mains are served, to whet your appetite.

If there’s a gold standard for egg tarts, this is it. For pastry savants, Tai Cheong needs no introduction. Crowds everyday are blessed by the sweet, silken egg custard, nestled in a melt-in-your-mouth pastry base which crumbles at first touch. The softness is surreal, and yet the tart remains impeccably baked: the crust glows beautifully golden brown and tastes gloriously buttery. Bonus: tarts are baked routinely throughout the day and sold warm (if you’re lucky, fresh out of the oven and piping hot). I’m in love.

Crispy on the outside, airy on the inside. Concealed at the core of the bread are a slice of melted cheese and smeared butter. Take it with a piping hot drink (tea or Milo) for some warm, fuzzy feels.

💭 Must try!

Perfection took the form of a crispy, flaky and airy pastry crust, encompassing a sweet, silken custard centre. I could rhapsodise about this for days.
