Our limited time in Macau did give us plenty of headache when it comes to food. While spoilt for choice, we also wanted to have something memorable and unique in Macau. There were two options in Taipa, Restaurante Dumbo å°é£›è±¡è‘¡åœ‹é¤ that serves mean Macanese food and Casa de Pasto Seng Cheong åŸŽæ˜Œé¥åº—, a Chinese restaurant that serves delicious crab porridge. But before that…
I love Rua do Cunha å®˜ä¹Ÿè¡—. It’s a small street in Taipa but do not underestimate it. It’s full of character and erm.. food too. I first explored this street two years ago and making a return for something that I truly missed – durian ice cream.
Gelatina Mok Yi Kei èŽ«ç¾©è¨˜ is the first shop you will see when you come down from the bus and don’t be fooled by the shop’s normal appearance.
My tour mates were still dazed from their first bus ride in Macau, so while waiting for them to ‘recover’, I hurriedly went over to the shop and bought my favourite durian ice cream.
It was still awesome and full of flavour. I could eat more but had to save some space for other food.
Besides durian ice cream, their sawdust pudding æœ¨æ§ºå¸ƒç”¸ (serradura in Portuguese) is also equally good.
We returned to Rua do Cunha after visiting Taipa Houses-Museum for dinner at Casa de Pasto Seng Cheong åŸŽæ˜Œé¥åº— because we felt like eating Chinese food. Well, Macanese food can save for next trip. 😛
Since it was still early, there was no queue at all and we could enjoy our food better.
Casa de Pasto Seng Cheong åŸŽæ˜Œé¥åº— is famous for its water crab porridge é©°åæ°´èŸ¹ç²¥ and no doubt, we liked it very much as the porridge has fully absorbed the sweetness of the crab meat.
Fried cuttlefish ball é…¥ç‚¸å¢¨éšä¸¸ is something we never tried in Malaysia, so when we popped them, it was delicious!
Salt and pepper frog æ¤’é¹½ç”°é›ž looks unique so we ordered one but it didn’t go quite well as the batter was quite thick. However, for us who have never really tasted deep fried frog, this indeed a refreshing change.
We took a 20-minute walk back to City of Dreams where The House of Dancing Water show awaits us.
