Margaret’s Café e Nata 玛嘉烈蛋挞 @ Macau

Many years ago, my dad went to Macau and upon coming home, he brought back some Portugese egg tarts that he claimed it was the best so far out of the many he had.
Though it has been through many hours across the ocean all the way back to Malaysia, the vivid egg taste was still very memorable though the pastry has became pretty soft.
“It’s definitely a must visit if you happen to visit Macau one day!” he assured 🙂

When it’s our turn to visit Macau, my dad made me bring the name card that reads:

Margaret’s Café e Nata 玛嘉烈蛋挞

When one mentioned Margaret’s Café e Nata 玛嘉烈蛋挞, it’s their Portugese Egg Tarts that you must try. Though other pastries, cakes, pizzas, sandwiches and coffee are also available, Magaret’s Portugese Egg Tarts are the main highlights. Many have compared Margaret’s version to Lord Stow’s Bakery treats of portugese egg tarts which is a very subjective topic and that’s for you to judge but we personally vote for Margaret’s Café e Nata. Yum!

This little cafe is tucked in a corner crossing an alley. But no worries, from a main crossroads with traffic lights before you reach Grand Lisboa casino (from Largo do Senado’s direction), you’ll notice the small signboard pointing to this cafe on your left. Easily spotted. And if you happen to stay at the same hotel as we do (Hotel Sintra), it’s just a few minutes walk away!

Before making a move back to Hong Kong, we had our tea-time here. Upon arriving, this place is still flooded with people. Luckily within a few minutes, we managed to grab ourselves a seat.

Portugese Egg Tarts that are worth waiting for. Crispy pastry with freshly baked egg fillings that was bursting with silky smooth texture and mesmerizing egg-gy aftertaste!



Too good to resist
