ode to an egg tart

新鮮出爐! fresh egg tarts

Hot, silky custard
in a crumbly puff pastry –
an eggy delight.

Far better than
those cold, stodgy custard tarts
sold back in Britain.

    Oh wow! I can just imagine how good they taste…Well, I’ve decided I’m definitely going to HK, Beijing and hopefully Shanghai this October. So your posts are very handy! Thanks as always…

    Eric – Go eat some. And have you gone to Din Tai Fung yet?!

    Helen – No problem, as usual! I’m going to be very jealous at that time of year…! I haven’t been to mainland China before, so I’ll look forward to your Beijing/Shanghai posts :D

    No, I hardly ever go to chinese resturants like that. But I did go have dim sum and had egg tarts, they were only ok though.
