We ate whenever we saw something interesting that we wanted to try.
A bowl of noodles in a simple coffee shop could take you back $14-20.
It was unusual, worth trying only coz it is one of Macau's specialty dish!
Beef noodles and Pork spare-parts noodles
After dinner we walked around a bit and found this old bakery.
Bought 3 types for breakfast. Total Cost : $9.50
Also bought a honey milk tea drink ($10) on the walk back to the hotel from the many drink shoplets along the street. And at a 7-eleven near the hotel, we got a Slurpy ($6.50), water ($4) and a cold beer ($5).
After our simple bread + hotel coffee breakfast, we headed over to Taipa.
I was on a quest to look for the famous Tai Lei Kok Kei coffee shop. They are reputated for their pork chop bun.
It was purely by chance that we found it. We just walked and walked and suddenly saw a shop in a distance that had a good many people. We were getting tired, so we decided to take a drink. Lo and behold...
So, we had their pork chop bun ($12) and a beef brisket noodle ($18). Ordered 1 coke($8) and 1 milk tea (lai cha - $12).
(As you can see I made the wrong choice of bread!)
They don't really know who ordered what. So, what they would do would be to bring each plate out of the kitchen and scream at the top of their voice. You will have to call for them to come to you if you hear/see your order!
(Don't wonder about the system. Wonder how come they have been no fights to date!!)
Tried another pork bun from a street vendor ($25 in a set with the bubble milk tea) and the curry fishball noodle ($12) and the Portugese Egg Tart ($5).
For dinner, hubby "declared" that he wanted to try their Roast Pigeon/Pork/Chicken with rice. So, we headed back to 3 Lamps District to try the store we saw last night that managed to draw a queue.
With the roasted pork still vivid in memory, we couldn't resist some more.
Bought $20 worth of roasted pork from a 'market-like' shop.
So, food for 3D2N cost us approx. $610
(Hubby utterly refused to eat at McD !!!)
