« What do you know about Portuguese Chinese Egg Tarts? | Main | The Perfect Soup Dumpling – CHOW.com Video »




Hi Andrea, I have just come back from Macau and have had my sizable share of Margaret's Cafe e Nata's tarts. Margaret was married to Lord Stow and opened her own nata shop. These tarts (and Lord Stow's) are nothing like dahn taht or even the pasteis de nata I can get here in Sydney ... they are just superior in taste and texture, creamier, richer, more tender. I've been thinking about replicating them for a while now and thanks to your post, I will. Thanks for sharing and thanks for all your hard work.

Milagritos, thank you for the first-person reporting! I love it. Do come back and let me know how you fare with using and tweaking the recipe above to match what you enjoyed at Margaret's Cafe e Nata's Tarts. The last time I was in Macau was in 1992.

Wow this is fantastic! Thanks so much for the recipe! I love poh-tart and don't get to visit Macau often but I make sure to munch on as many as possible when I do! I'll definitely try this at home.


this is amazing!

Andrea Nguyen

Glad you all like it. They are really really good freshly baked.


Too cool, Andrea. I wanna makes these pronto!

Andrea Nguyen

They are terribly easy. Just took me a while to figure out the details. Enjoy them!

He must ever be receptive and sensitive to the new ; and have sufficient courage and skill to novel facts and to deal with them .Do you understand?

Needless to say, nothing at all but perseverance can lead a dude to your way of achievement. In other words, a persevering dude hardly ever does his get the job done lacking doing well in it. This really is certainly unchangeable reality.
