I believe almost all visitors in Macau would like to have a bite on the ever-popular pastéis de nata (Portuguese egg tarts), and of course, myself included. By the way, Margaret is an ex-wife of the famous Lord Stow of Coloane who is the king of egg tarts in Macau. I'll talk more about Lord Stow's Bakery in the coming review!
Although the queue was kinda long the other day, it was moving pretty fast, probably because most people just bought a few egg tarts and left.
Portuguese Egg Tart MOP 8.00 (~S$1.30)
Served fresh from the oven, the egg tart was piping hot, but not too fragile. The crust was crispy and flaky, but not that buttery. The caramelised egg custard was creamy and not too sweet. It was delightful, but I love Lord Stow's version more haha...
Besides egg tarts, the café also sells a range of pastries and sandwiches, including espresso and its friends. Pika's advice: You may want to leave as soon as possible after getting what you want. The staff are in the list of the rudest people I've ever met in my life, shouting at the top of their voices to the customers, and yes, a lot of people have also mentioned about this issue over the Internet. You've been warned. Well, I suppose I won't return to Margaret's Café e Nata.
