I love their egg tart its authentic as if you are having it there in Macau. While eating this tart, there seem to be a renaissance going on inside my mouth.

Light, flaky, sweet custard. It's also rich, creamy, and buttery aroma combines for an awesome feast for the senses, the kind that makes you close your eyes.

It was so good that it became an instant hit to my taste buds. It's best to eat it while it's still very warm. The filling on tart is very similar to Leche Flan. It's cheaper if you buy in dozen. This will be a great choice for "pasalubong."

I don't know the quality in other branches, but this one in Binondo is very good.

They offered a tips, eat it right after you buy it to appreciate the freshness and goodness of the tarts.

I'm a big big big fan of Lord Stow's and their egg tarts! I always fight the impulse (and always fail) to buy a box of six tarts every time I get to pass by a branch. I think they only have a few in Manila, maybe five or more? Super sarap kasi talaga ng egg tarts nila. I like their version of the famous Portugese egg tarts. I've tried other versions like those in Hong Kong and Macau during some of my visits. I just like how consistent the taste and quality have always been.

One egg tart costs 40-50 pesos. People may find it expensive but I swear it's worth it. You'll know why the moment you take a bite. At each bite, you'll know it's not easy to make. How fine the crust is, and i can say they're very consistent with their cooking. I was never disappointed with any order. I can finish three egg tarts if I wanted to! 128527

Aside from them heavenly egg tarts, they also serve sandwiches, some pastries, cheesecakes, coffee, and other pika-pikas. I specifically liked the Oatmeal Crunchies! Not too sweet and really addicting. Perfect for pasalubongs or even as your snacks! I also like their chilled taho. Their Japanese cheesecake was okay. It's quite dense making a slice quite heavy to digest.

I think I have already shared several times how much I love Binondo. No, it’s not because I’m Chinese (as I “was” a frustrated Japanesewannabe loving everything Japanese!). It was because I get to discover and experience a lot of things here that I normally wouldn’t if I roam around my “territory” (as some of my friends call it). Kalesa rides, haggling for fruit prices, seeing chicken feet and head vacuum sealed, and more—I don’t think I’ll ever experience that in my territory.

During my fourth trip to Binondo last year, a CS friend of mine got so excited to see a bakeshop. I was… confused. Apparently, it is known for its egg tarts and it is actually an international bakeshop. *Ooh*

Hello, Lord Stow’s Bakery!

It was rather odd though that her excitement never pushed me to buy a box of my own. I guess I was too lazy to carry a box knowing that we were going to Intramuros (my favorite place ever… here in Manila).

Then the food gods conspired and made my other friends message me how good Lord Stow’s egg tarts are… randomly (and note that they do not even belong to the same group of friends). I simply replied, “Yeah! It’s sooooo good :)” just so I won’t feel like a cavewoman version of a foodie. But seriously?!? Was it that good?

I had several opportunities to buy some as I sometimes visit Podium and Market! Market! but I always forget because of the same reason—too lazy to carry a box of egg tarts while walking around. *Note to self: Must get used to carrying plastic while walking around the mall.*

Then finally, one lucky Saturday, I got the chance to visit Lord Stow’s Bakery… again, in Binondo. I bought two boxes of 6 but gave one to my friend who was with me that day.

When I got home, I made sure to have it chilled so that it’d be oh-so-yummy for breakfast. (I read though that egg tarts taste way better when hot.)

Morning came and my first meal was… Lord Stow’s egg tarts!!! It was good! The custard was really creamy and sweet (though not very sweet making it still pretty much a nice treat for the diabetic foodies but try to keep it to just one tart). The crust was also soft and a bit flaky. Yummy!

I will definitely buy some more… but perhaps at a branch near my “territory”. :)

There is nothing better to start your day for breakfast or end your day for dessert and they are good hot and fresh or cold leftover from the day before.

The egg custard is extraordinary and you can't have just one. It is perfectly creamy, rich and light with flaky golden brown pastry around it that is cooked to perfection.

The crust is crispy and the egg custard is creamy and rich, though a little too sweet for my liking. Best to pair with a hot drink like coffee or tea.

3/10: From all the 10 places we visited I'm sure that this is my ultimate favorite. Why only now teta?! Why??? 128525128557128525128557128525128557

• PLACE
- Although it's not new to me that there's quite a number of branches here in the Philippines, I don't even bother visiting their branch in Banawe (nearest to my location) since I'm not even a fan of egg tarts! I pretty much visualized this as the local egg pie which I'm not a fan. 128556128556128556 Lord stow is located few steps from the friendship arch in Binondo. The place is well ventilated and clean.

• FOOD
- Just to be sure, Boyfie and I bought the smallest box incase we don't like it. haha!128514 How is it? It's a LOVE AT FIRST BITE!128525 Ahhhhh! One of the greatest creations I ever tasted! It's not even close to egg pie at all! (Sorry na 128529) I can't stop myself devouring on these wonderful tarts! The crust of the tart was soft yet super flaky. While the custard has the perfect balance of creaminess and sweetness that lingers in my mouth with every bite! 128525

It's so good that we even bought another 2 boxes to enjoy at home. And just like me, they inhaled everything in just a blink of an eye! haha! Ohhhhh. There's reason for me to go at Banawe! 128525128525128525

Originally from Macau, this particular bakery/pastry shop is widely known for its portuguese egg tarts.

According to Gugol and their website, an englishman, Andrew Stow had his first store in Macau in the 1980s. And before his stores started sprouting here in the Philippines, it was something worth looking forward to when in Macau.

Well, it's a good thing branches came in our country because it won't be expensive anymore when the craving for the creamy custard egg pies kick in. 128077

I love it for its smooth, crunchy-on-the -outside, soft-and-creamy-on-the-inside character. It's something that I can indulge in, eat a whole box of in one sitting and not feel too guilty about it (or maybe I should?) 128513

Their stores vary in sizes. In this particular branch, it's quite small. They only have a small bar with high stools for when you decide to eat it right away. They also have other products but I haven't really taken notice because all I know is, when you say Lord Stow's, it's portuguese egg tarts... Delicious egg tarts. 128522

A week ago, I saw in a show on TLC that a Portuguese owns the original bakery in Macau. Therefore, these aren't Chinese egg tarts but Portuguese egg tarts. 128561 all my life i believed that these are Chinese egg tarts... I feel like my whole life is a lie now.

Loljk 128540

Nevertheless, these are still the best egg tarts evarr! 128541

This dessert reminds me of the fun times that my family and I had when we went to Macau 3 years ago. 12810512810312812010084

These Portuguese egg tarts are so yummy! I didn't get that much excited though because they have it in malls now but we were told that this the first Lord Stow's Bakery to open here in the Philippines. 128512

Bought a box of 6 egg tarts for Php245 as a pasalubong for my mom. Not bad at all! 127854

It was fun going to Binondo to try out their famous restaurants and to feel the Filipino-Chinese community vibe. Everyone's nice and helpful that you don't even have to ask for help. (I guess I was wearing that confused sorta lost facial expression. Haha!)

I wanted to explore Binondo but it was just too crowded and the weather is unbearable. I hope they can improve and clean the place so that we can just wander the streets of Ongpin and Yuchengco. 128522

A childhood favorite! 128523
Their egg tarts are simply the best! I've tried the Lord Stow in Macau and it tastes almost the same. Macau's Lord Stow pastry is just more flaky but the custard consistency is more or less the same. If you're looking for pure custardy goodness, this is your best bet!

EGG TARTS!!!
Custardy goodness nestled in flaky pastry. 9786
It's so good that my cousin could eat 12 of these in one sitting! No joke!

I've been eating their egg tarts since i was a kid and i can tell you that the quality of their egg tarts have not changed. They're still as good as ever! They were 36php back then but now, i believe, they are priced at 42php a piece.

Have you tried their egg tarts? How many can you eat in one sitting? 128516

As you all can see I already ate half of one of the egg tarts. I'm sorry. My sister was playing Tetris and I couldn't wait it's so yummy :( and when you feel how hot the box is? You wouldn't resist having a bite of these fresh egg tarts. The best egg tarts in Manila! Plus the lady at the counter was really friendly and asked me if I'm sure im only getting a box of six... I am now asking myself the same question :(
