The real Portuguese egg tart

There's a worldwide cultural fair at Fiera Milano (Milan's Expo) and we saw a stall selling the real Portuguese egg tart. I have eaten Portuguese egg tarts selling in Macau and Singapore, but I have never tried the real one from Portugal. So it's a must to try it!




I was disappointed when I first put it into my mouth as it was cold! I love pipping hot egg tarts fresh from the oven! But as I continue to taste and eat it, I find it really tasty even though it was cold. Yup.

As compared to the Portuguese egg tart we had in Macau, the crust of this real Portuguese egg tart is less oily but it's as crispy as the Macau one. As I chewed the egg tart, there's a tinge of 焦味 aroma spread in my mouth. Oh, I love that taste! The Macau one dun have that aroma. The egg filling is also not the same the Macau one. Macau's egg filling is more fluffy, while this is firmer. Their tastes are also slightly different. I would say each has it's own merits.

Hmm. If I were to choose, I will prefer the real Portuguese egg tart as it's less oily and I prefer the firmer texture of the egg filling with strong egg aroma. The only thing that I'm unhappy with the real Portuguese egg tart: It's cold when served.
