Lord Stow's Egg Tarts

Light, flaky, sweet and soft custard. Rich and creamy, the kind that makes you close your eyes. Lord Stow's famous egg tarts is an indulgence I reward myself, for any and whatever reason.


Opening its first outlet in 1989 in Macau, the Lord Stow's Bakery story is an amazing one, with much of its success attributed to this egg tart. The original bakery has  become an iconic tourist attraction in Macau and its egg tarts continue to be popular.




Lord Stow's Bakery now has outlets in Hong Kong, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and the Philippines. Not bad for a little bakery that opened more than twenty years ago.

The egg tarts are best served warm, reheat if you can but if you can't wait, it's also not bad straight from the fridge.

The golden flaky pastry shell, sweet custard and buttery aroma combines for an awesome feast for the senses. Great with a cup of coffee, and then just close your eyes...

Lord Stow's is located at Unit 4, Ground Level, Madison Square, Madison Street corner Ortigas Avenue, Greenhills. Or call 727-9328 for inquiries and locations of their other branches.

  3. These look like the king of all egg tarts. I've tasted some pretty delicious egg tarts but none look quite as amazing as Lord Stow's. I'm adding that to my bucket list - find Lord Stow's Bakery, and try their famous egg tarts...
