Comparing the taste of egg tart !

Speaking of confectionery in Hong Kong, I imagine more egg tart than mango.
I hadn’t eaten egg tart. Just I had eaten egg tart-like confectionery sold at LAWSON :p

I examined about shops that have high reputation as egg tart around Sheung Wan and Central, and two shops attracted me.
Though I was full just after breakfast, I could eat one each.

Hong Kong 2016 (9/18) : Lin Heung Tea House (蓮香樓) - Old Yum cha restaurant in Sheung Wan
Hong Kong Old style yum cha ! I got up early on second morning of my trip and went through the still quiet station. My destination was Sheung Wan ! For having breakfast. Speaking of breakf...

First, Tai Cheong Bakery in Central. I took this photo on my way to Lin Heung Tea House.

香港で初エッグタルト。飲茶でおなか一杯だけど1個ずつなら2か所行ける!ということでまずこちら。泰昌餅家。

Tai Cheong Bakery started their business in 1954. There are some branches, for example, in Tsim Sha Tsui, Wan Chai and this Central branch.

There was line in front of the shop when I was back from Lin Heung Tea House, but I tried following the line.
My turn soon came because everyone just bought it. There’s no eating space in the shop.

ショーケースにできたてのエッグタルト。ちょっと並んでましたが、買うだけなのですぐ私の番は来ました。

I bought just one egg tart (蛋撻, 6HKD) because this was the first time to eat egg tart.
Just after I got out of the shop and I sucked it ! Pudding at the center was wobbly !
I should have bought more.

一個だけ買い、おそるおそる初エッグタルト。真ん中のプリン部分がフルフルでおいしい!あっという間に吸い込んでしまった!

And second, Honolulu Coffee Shop of Central. Honolulu ?

店の前にお目当てのエッグタルト!

Of course, we can take them away, but I wanted to have a break for a while because I got tired. So, I entered the shop.

Honolulu..? :p

ホノ・・・ルル・・・どうみても中華食堂やないかい!(ノ`Д´)ノ.:・┻┻ 角野卓三みたいなのがいっぱいいる…。

It’s the Chinese restaurant ! There’s no atmosphere of Honolulu !

The staffs rushed me. Every staffs moved hurriedly. I ordered an egg tart and coffee.
Egg tart (極品蛋撻, 9 HKD) was served very quickly.

It had firmer texture than Tai Cheong Bakery’s.

超せっかちなおっさんに捲し立てられながら注文すると、秒速でエッグタルトが運ばれてきました(;^ω^) フルフル感はなく、こっちはしっかりとした食感です。

I waited for a while, but my coffee wasn’t served. And then one of the staff asked me, “Your coffee don’t come yet ?”, I answered “yes” and then he ran to the kitchen and brought it to me :p Why do they so hurry nevertheless there weren’t many people in the shop ? 🙁

Hot coffee (檀島珈啡 熱, 20 HKD)

Coffee, Honolulu coffee shop Central branch,Central (Hongkong 201602)

コーヒーがなかなか運ばれてこないなあと思ってたらおじさんが「コーヒーは?」「まだ」と答えるとすごい勢いで厨房へ行って持ってきてくれました。(;^ω^)

I couldn’t relax in the shop, so I drunk it up quickly and got out of the shop :p

おっさんたちがあまりにせわしなく、落ち着かないので、早々に店を後にすることにしました(^^;)

I like Tai Cheong Bakery’s one better than Honolulu coffee Shop’s in its texture.
