Macapuno or Egg tarts?

My sister knew somebody working in a posh bakeshop in Qatar who have mastered making egg tarts, similar to the famous egg tarts in Macau. I haven't been to Macau but my friends raved so much about the egg tarts. When I saw photos of egg tarts in my sister's album in Facebook, I asked her to request for a copy of the recipe and days after, she emailed me it to me. Unfortunately, the oven in my mom's house is out of order so it is impossible to execute the tart recipe.


Yesterday, I dropped by at SM before I head to work to buy bread I can eat at work (on my second break)and entered Pan de Manila store. I bought cheese pandesal and saw the Macapuno tarts, I suddenly remembered my sister and the egg tarts we've been talking about. There are actually 2 kinds of tarts being sold in Pan de Manila, the Egg and Macapuno tarts and the latter is the only one available at that time, so I grabbed it, priced at 62 pesos for 3 pieces. I ate the two after waking up from a long sleep and the one left was consumed by Acey. The taste was okay but it did not meet my expectations, nevertheless, I still wanna try their egg tarts.

You really should try the Portuguese egg tart, if you happen to know someone in Manila you could ask them to visit The Lords Stowe, they offer one of the best Portuguese egg tarts that I've tasted.

I'm also a huge fan of Pan de Manila, their Macapuno Tart is really delicious. But my experience with their Egg Tart was not satisfying, but I still suggest you to try it, people have different taste buds =)

Downunder here in Australia we get custard tarts - which are similar to the egg tarts! They're one of my favourites, so I hope you find a good one somewhere!

Have a great weekend!!
