Macao egg tart is probably most iconic version of sweet treat in Macao. One of the oldest and most famous of this English-Portuguese hybrid with this soft custardy filling inside the flaky shell with burnt and caramelised top, is none other than the famous Lord Stow. With a couple of outlets everywhere else, the oldest bakery giving birth to the reputation of Macao Egg Tarts is in Coloane’s central square. And it remains a must visit for what’s being offered isn’t just the sweet pastries alone-there’s so much history to this place and the tale as old as this place is surreal. Every brick and rock and smiles on the people’s faces, churches and all the Instagram worthy spots; they tell a story of their own. The recent trip to Macao with the Macao Tourism Malaysia got me learning so much more about this popular baker.

Macau egg tarts were initially and commonly considered a Portuguese import. But in my opinion, it is very much defined by the origin of early influences from both British, as imported from Hong Kong, and tuned with cream pastry by Portuguese immigrants, and made to the likings of local Chinese. With the birth of this pastry treat, and the effort put into continuing the legacy, it is safe to say that Portuguese Egg Tart is synonymous with one of what defines Macao (or at least, the tourism of Macao).
