Lord Stow’s at EXpresso 咖啡吧 – Delicious Portuguese Style Dan Tat (Chinese Egg Custard Tarts)
Lord Stow’s is a bakery in Macau that is famous for their dan tat (egg custard tarts). At the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay, the coffee shop called EXpresso has Lord Stow dan tat. A friend of mine showed me this place last time I was in Hong Kong. The store itself is just a small upscale coffee shop with typical coffee shop fare, the real appeal is the Lord Stow dan tat. They are the Portguese version meaning that the tops are somewhat burnt and so they have a sort of carmelization on top. Egg custard tarts are probably one of the more famous and popular Chinese pastries. They have a buttery flaky crust and a very egg-y yellow custard that is sweet. The Lord Stow version is very good especially when they are hot. The crust is delicious and flaky and the custard is not too sweet and has a great flavor. 9/10
I definitely recommend trying these out if you are in Hong Kong.
