Not exaggerating when we say every Singaporean should know about Tai Cheong’s egg tarts by now. These palm-sized Hong Kong desserts brought hordes of Singaporeans down to Takashimaya, queuing for approximately 30 minutes before they can get their hands on one. After a year of pleasing our egg tart desires, Tai Cheong decidedly opens a Cha Chaan Teng (Hong-Kong style teahouse) right smack in the middle of Holland V. Sounds like a great place to splurge your cha ching instead of airplane tickets to Hong Kong. And they don’t even charge for service here.
Here’s what they have to offer.
French Toast ($6.50)
Fluffy white toast pan-fried, bringing out a crispy egg aroma and slathered with 100 percent pure maple syrup or homemade duche de leche.
Three-Egg Macaroni Soup with Luncheon Meat ($8.50)
Comfort food with a tangy finish. Elbow macaroni swimming in a tomato soup with 3 sunny-side up eggs and crisp strips of luncheon meat.
Scrambled Egg Toast Stack with Chicken Chop ($9.50)
Pan-fried chicken chop drenched in creamy mushroom sauce underneath a thick toast and fluffy scrambled eggs.
Three Coloured Silky Eggs with Rice ($9.90)
A silky three-egg omelette atop steamed rice comes with a choice of two toppings. From Roasted Pork to prawns, all with sprigs of kailan.
