Margaret’s Cafe e Nata 玛嘉烈蛋挞

Macau/HK 2013 – Margaret’s Café e Nata 玛嘉烈蛋挞

It was the fifteenth day of CNY and we have landed safely at Macau International Airport. We spent quite some time looking for our shuttle bus to our hotel (Note: City of Dreams, if you read this, you really need to improve your shuttle service at the airport!), and finally after all the hassle, we started the very first thing in my itinerary, Margaret’s Café e Nata.

If you want to try the legendary Macanese egg tarts but don’t want to go all the way to Lord Stow’s in Coloane, this busy cafe (supposedly founded by Stow’s ex-wife) does an equally sweet and melty version. At least we can’t tell the difference. It also has good-value sandwiches. Lonely Planet

And exactly as how I pictured it, it was full of people enjoying the legendary Macanese tarts. It didn’t help the fact that it was on a Sunday and it also happened to be lunch time the moment we reached there.

The service was quick and efficient as always, and we got our tarts in less than 10 minutes. Due to limited seating, we almost had to jostle for seats before we could enjoy our tarts.

Nothing can go wrong for an establishment that has received a lot of positive reviews in the past and present. If you have limited time and cannot afford to go all the way to Coloane for the original Macanese tarts (Note: The original Macanese tarts is Lord’s Stow, with branch in Venetian), this is worth a try.
