Lord Stow’s Egg Tart @ EXpresso, The Excelsior, Hong Kong


Having missed going to Coloane, Macau for my dose of Lord Stow’s egg tart 3 years+ ago, I make sure I get to taste it this time in Hong Kong. Lord Stow’s famous Portuguese egg tarts are sold in EXpresso cafe at The Excelsior in Causeway Bay.

My eyes lighted up the moment I saw these golden egg tarts at EXpresso.

Bought 4 pieces of Lord Stow’s egg tart and 2 pieces of EXpresso egg tart. Each tart cost HK$9.00 (RM3.50). Pricey eh? But is it worth it?

Unfortunately I made the mistake and took the egg tarts back to my lodging before I tried it. By then the egg tarts were no longer warm. Ohh stupid me! ๐Ÿ˜›

Well the egg tart tasted good. I wasn’t ‘wow-ed’ by it though. I can tell you it’s definitely better than the ones from Tai Cheong Bakery as the latter is a bit salty (theirs are not Portuguese egg tart). In fact Lord Stow’s egg tart remind me of Tong Kee’s egg tart (a confectionery in Malaysia). As for EXpresso egg tart, well it’s alright but I wouldn’t miss it.

So it’s a big lesson learned here for me: Eat egg tart when it’s piping hot especially when you’re in cold weather country. Hopefully I would be able to try the egg tarts from Lord Stow’s main branch in the future.

      Oh yes very famous. The famous ones in Hong Kong/Macau are Lord Stow’s Portuguese egg tart and ‘normal’ egg tarts from Tai Cheong and Honolulu Cafe.
