Love at First Bite – Lord Stow’s Portugese Egg Tarts

May 13th, 2008

IT WAS love at first bite when I sank my teeth into the crispy pastry crust filled with a crème brûlée-like egg custard that literally melts in your mouth. The Lord Stow’s Portugese-style Egg Tart was simply divine. I had my first bite of this famous chain of egg tarts during a recent trip to Macao in May 2008. I’ve read claims about it being the “best in the world.”

Well, you never know unless you try it.

My verdict? Yes, it tops all the other versions of egg tarts I’ve ever tasted. It tastes so goooood.

Reason? The caramelized glaze on the surface of the egg tart gave it a distinctive aroma and taste – that lingered to tease your tastebuds long after the first bite. And the pastry crust was of the right thickness. You don’t need to chew through a thick chunk of pastry to get to the delicious custard filling.

A box of six of the Lord Stow’s Portugese egg tarts cost MOP/HKG 40. I finished two boxes in two days!

Getting there:

Lord Stow’s Portugese Egg Tarts
1 Rua da Tassara
Coloane Village
Coloane Island

Bus 26A will take you there. Take the bus from Av de Almeido Ribeira, Macao Island. This is a major road fronting the Senado Square so you can’t miss it. Or, grab a taxi. Beware though, it’s terribly difficult to get a cab out of Coloane Village. Call for a cab.
