We found this particular establishment after finished our lunch at a restaurant nearby. When we reached this Cafe, we found quite a long queue (more than 15 people ahead of us). Since we both aimed to taste both Portuguese Egg Tarts during our brief visit...More

If you get here for tasty homemade quality egg tarts with a flaky crust and heavy filling, you get the right place. If you are looking for a fancy hipster's joint with a supreme service go somewhere else. Simple

Yummy egg tarts. Always busy with lots of tourists but worth the wait! The shop is just a short walk from hotel lisboa. Check for the signage as its off the Main Street.

It is as tasty as Lord Stow tarts. I tried Lord Stow tart at Rua do Chuna shop. For me, I like Lord Stow shell because it is much softer on outter layer. Margerat tart egg custord is much richer. Depends on individual taste bud....More

In Vienna there are two restaurants, which for about 186 years, have claimed that they invented the "Sacher torte" [a variation of the chocolate cake]-- and "chef Sacher" worked at both bakeries.... Macau has their version of this rivalry- revolving around "Portuguese style egg tarts"--...More
