Margaret's Cafe e Nata, Macau

Portuguese Egg Tart

Portuguese egg tarts are practically required eating here in Macau, so we came down to Margaret's Cafe e Nata (Gum Loi Building, 2871-0032) to grab what we were told was one of the best around. The crust on these was sinfully rich and flaky, while the custard was much more caramelized than their HK-style counterparts. I'm sure that if you eat more than a few of these, you'll be begging for a nap afterwards.

This shop is a bit hard to find though as it's tucked into a small alley. The geek inside of me wants to give GPS coordinates of 22.1888 degrees north by 113.5472 degrees east to help, but the fact of the matter is that walking into an alley is going to mess up the readings anyway. So it may be best to just walk into Hotel Sintra and ask for directions. Basically exit the hotel, turn left into a northeasterly direction, cross Avenida Infante D. Henrique, and then look for the first alley on your left - there should be a sign pointing in the direction of the cafe too.
