Egg tart is called “daahn taat”蛋挞 in Cantonese and can be found in the Dim sum restaurant or Cha Chaan Tengs restaurant or tea restaurant in Hong Kong. Originally egg tart is coming from Portugal then spread to Macau and Hong Kong and other Asian countries.
Queen Sophie is specialized in egg tarts, located in Mong Kok. You will get attracted with the big collection of egg tarts here.
The bakery is small but it has over 30 kinds of egg tarts and different pastries. The egg tarts are so cute and colorful, all sort of flavor and each with a unique and creative presentation.
All their baked tarts displayed neatly by the glass window. Customers usually ordered and take away as there are no seats available. There is only a standing table if you want to eat in.
Queen Sophie has their own signature of 386 crispy layers in their egg tarts. Not sure it is really 386 layers but it was printed in their take away packaging box.
I tasted their passion fruits chocolate tart and marshmallows tart. Both tasted awesome even though I have it after a few hours I purchased from the shop. The passion fruit with chocolate was a nice choice as the passion fruit tasted a bit sour which went so well with the sweet chocolate. While the marshmallows tart was soft and a bit chewy on the first bite and melted in the mouth.
Sophie Queen bakes not just ordinary egg tarts but egg tarts with different variations. It is pretty fun to stand at the window glass to admire the beautiful creation and choose what you like. The staff will line them in a nice box to take away.
My only regret was not getting of these beautiful egg tarts and try out one by one. Anyone who is visiting Mongkok and love sweet desserts should check it out. The price is reasonable, around
