Macau - Egg tarts from Lord Stow's, Coloane Village
This creamy, delicious Macanese take on the Portuguese pastéis de nata is a must-have when one visits Macau. And the name oft-mentioned in Macau when one talks about Portuguese egg tarts must be Lord Stow's Bakery in the tiny village of Coloane.
Served hot from the ovens, the flaky, buttery pastry combined well with the creamy-rich custard. Lord Stow's version is not overly-sweet like some renditions one gets elsewhere. Copycats about all over Macau and neighbouring Hong Kong, but Lord Stow's stood out with the smooth, delicate texture of its custard.

The pasteis de Belem in Macau taste even better than those I tried in Belem, Portugal. Next time when you're in Macau, try Margaret's at Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. It's in a back alley but worth the find. Just walk from Lisboa casino towards Leal Senado, about 200 meters.

Hate to break it to y'all, but the best egg tarts I've had ever were at the Club Lusitano, a couple of weeks back. Man, those were killer. They were smaller, which meant the ratio of flaky dough to custard was higher, providing them with just the right oomph to eat them in one bite...
