We each ate a warm Dan Tat on the street right after purchase - pretty good but not as good as I had anticipated. The pastry is not quite as fluffy and flaky as previously and the filling, while still very tasty, is not quite as good. Is it me or does anyone else feel the same way?

If your looking for an incredibly delicious desert, this is the place to go. They make the best egg tarts; not only is the food good but the location of the restaurant. It is in a very different and unique part of Macau which improves your experience especially if you are a tourist and looking for places to visit!

The trip to the original shop in Coloane village for the famous Portuguese egg tarts was indeed worthwhile. The hot tarts, with delicious butter crusts that crumble upon first bite and the egg custard has smooth consistency, is fresh and absolutely delicious. One is never enough!
