Egg Custard King Cafe in Chinatown

POST #    1997

After seeing David's photo of the Egg Custard King Cafe in his flickr photostream, I decided that I must go. Over the weekend, I finally went. While the name might make you think they only have egg custard, that would be incorrect as they also have actual food. OF course, I didn't get any of this. Just an overload of egg custard.

Egg Custard King Cafe has several flavors of egg custard and I went with four different ones, none of which were the traditional flavor you might find at dim sum. Pictured are the almond, strawberry, honey dew, and mango flavored egg custards. They also had plain, banana and some sort of white egg custard (possibly egg white?).

Are they tasty? You bet. Just don't eat four in a 5 minute span. Why would I do that? Well, I had to taste one right after another but without finishing the whole thing. It's a good thing I didn't get each flavor they had. I think my favorite of the bunch was the honey dew egg custard followed by the almond, strawberry, and mango.

And for 75¢ each, I might have to go back and try the other flavors. Certainly not all at once though.

My girlfriend and I LOVE egg custards. I didn't know they had such a variety of flavors out there, though. We'll have to try this place next time we're in NYC. Great pics.

This looks perfect for Easter. Or any other day.

Dude, you have got to try the egg white custard! I'm all about the original, but I have yet to try the flavored ones.

The white custard is indeed made of egg whites. I like the box, too.
