Kamboat Bakery And Cafe

Before the pandemic, I would’ve recommended going inside Hong Kong bakery Kam Boat in Chinatown for the full Chinese bakery experience: grab a tray, a pair of tongs, and pick out some baked goods from their wide assortment. These days, I still recommend dropping by, but expect that an employee will handle your treats of choice. The egg tarts here are also some of the best in the city - the crust is a little more crumbly than flaky, and the egg custard center is impossibly smooth. I like to buy these egg tarts by the dozen, save two for myself, and bring the rest to potlucks to share with all my friends.
