Hong Kong style egg tart

A bakery staple in the city, the tart is popular for its smooth and silky texture and sweetness. The best time to eat this sweet treat is when it’s right out of the oven, this is when the flavour is at its optimum! The tart comes with two types of crust: the shortbread crust or the flaky puff crust, you can choose your pick!

Despite not originating from Hong Kong, bubble tea is a local favourite. You can select the level of sweetness you need and opt to leave the milk out if you choose to.
