After dim sum with my friend, she suggested dropping by here for the "best dan ta" around. They're apparently famous for their egg tarts (and Yelp confirmed so!). She said that there's normally a line wrapping around but we came at a good time when it wasn't too busy. We only ended up waiting a long time because they ran out of egg tarts right before us so guess what? Egg tarts FRESH out of the oven! It's a cash only place so keep that in mind when (not if) you visit. The dan ta were so amazing when hot and later on in the day too when they settled/cooled down. The flaky crust was spot on and not too buttery. The egg part was silky smooth and just the right hint of sweetness that wasn't overpowering. Easily the best dan ta. I'm salivating in my mouth thinking about them again...
