6 Must Eat Food in Macau

1. Lord Stow’s Bakery ( 安德鲁葡挞 )

The name Lord Stow’s has become synonymous with the best Portuguese egg tarts in Macau. Buttery flaky pastry shell and rich custard filling, Macau’s version differs from most egg tarts sold elsewhere. Miss it and you will regret.

We recommend eating steaming hot egg tarts straight from the ovens of Lord Stow’s Bakery, because they taste twice as nice when piping hot. A must eat food in Macau!

  1. Hi Tommy,

    Thanks for your postings esp the one on dining in Macau. The tarts at Margaret Cafe were delicious, couldn’t find similar standard at other Macau cake shops. My husband and I enjoyed the black pepper roast duck and vegetables for dinner at Chan Kong Kei, a balanced meal outside of home.

    Your guide is very informative for people like us on a free n easy tour. Thanks, one again.

  2. Thanks to your blog, me and my family went to Macau last year and we really enjoyed the restaurants and food at your suggestion especially the roast black pepper duck at Chan Kong Kei !! : )

    Hi Tommy,

    Great stuff. Are the Portugese/Western food worth trying? If yes, any recommendation? Thanks.

  7. Valuable info. Lucky me I discovered your website by chance, and I am shocked why
    this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  8. You have just built an attached garage with a foundation in the Sims 3, but a few
    finishing touches are needed. With the garage door
    closed, place the ladder below the motor and find the
    limit switches. Rolling shutters of ROMA have a patented
    sound body and are therefore pleasantly quiet.

  9. Hi.. great post.. by e way quick update for your blog.. 大利来记咖啡室 is no longer available

  10. Hi Tommy,
