Yummy good value Portuguese egg tarts (only Y4.50) on special. All the cakes looked good too and I bought the special Year of the Horse panna cotta with a horse dish - nice souvenir to take home!

Famius for their Baked egg tarts, the Portuguese type, in Shanghai. Usually always a line so it's nice and hot! Hits the spot everytime.

this place sells the all time no1, best-est egg tarts in Shanghai. time yourself and wait at the counter for the moment when a new batch is made before you buy, and consume immediately. (filling is HOT)
