Stood in one line for 45 minutes to order and pay for the custard tarts. Then you get in another line for maybe 20 minutes to retrieve your order as they literally serve the tarts as they come out of the oven. Some people were...More

One of the finest Portuguese egg cart around the city but the cashier was unfriendly. Need to change a smaller denominate note before you come, otherwises 100 RMB will only calculated as 90 Mop

The taste and texture is consistent all year round. That’s why there’s always 2 rows of queue, one to order and the other to collect the yummylicious egg tarts

This place is legendary. In the morning, it's great for breakfast. In the afternoon, the queue could have 50 people before you! The egg custard tarts are served hot, straight from the oven and delicately melt in your mouth!

I came to this place to try the "egg tart" (pastel de nata) thinking it was going to be the same of the real thing in Portugal. It's SO different! This is actually more like a scrambled egg on flaky pastry, gross! There is nothing...More

About a 10min walk from the church wall in cathedral square. The line is long but moves rather quick. Still the best egg tarts in Macau, worth braving the wait in line for. However, the pork chop bun sold there as well has dropped in...More
