Eat Hong Kong Lord Stow’s Egg Tart at EXpresso
Do you know where I can get Lord Stow’s tarts?
There’s only 1 place in all of Hong Kong…
EXpresso’s Lord Stow’s Egg Tart tl;dr
- Portuguese Inspired Egg Custard Tarts
- In Hong Kong, Sold Only at EXpresso at the Excelsior
- I Will ALWAYS Go Here When in HKG
Egg tarts are one of those things I grew up eating and always looked forward to. Imagine a small baked cup of layered pastry sheets filled with a creamy egg custard mixture. Egg tarts will always have a place in my heart!
When I heard there was a branch of the glorious eggy treat, I knew I had to find it. I knew that there must be plenty of locations since it’s from Macau, right next to Hong Kong. What I didn’t know would amaze you!
Where in Hong Kong?
Lord Stow Egg tarts are sold in a place hidden in a Hong Kong hotel. There’s only this one location. This lonely little coffee branch that’s hiding by itself waiting for a friend. Be that friend and celebrate egg tart friendships!
Look for the Excelsior Hotel and make a beeline straight to the back of the lobby where the EXpresso cafe is. Within is all the Lord Stow egg custard goodness you wanted, and will ever want!
The Excelsior Lobby Entrance
When you’re finally at the window, bypass all the other baked goods. Remember, you’re here for only Lord Stow’s! Actually, the other things may be good. Who knows? Try at your own peril, but in the meantime order as many of the Portuguese egg tarts that you think you can eat in a 1 day, then multiply it by 2!
Before even leaving the branch with your baked goods, stop and enjoy one of those flaky, buttery, custardy goodness! Wash and repeat all the way back to wherever you came from be it your hotel or house (pfft who am I kidding, you’d have to be filthy rich to have a house in Hong Kong).
Look at all those Tarts

If you haven’t guessed by now, I LOVE TARTS! I mean, like I really do love these things.
Funny thing when I was in Osaka… There was a Lord Stow’s Bakery there as well. You’re probably asking what’s so special about a Lord Stow’s all the way in Osaka. Well, I’ll tell you what’s so special about Lord Stow’s in Osaka! They have multiple flavors, crazy flavors, wonderfully tasting never seen outside of Japan flavors:
