M and I went to Macau for a day trip on a Saturday. And it is busy. BUSY. Being virgin macaurians we decided to venture off looking at the main tourist sites and indulge ourselves in the food haven…….yes, even eating HK is not enough for us!
First we stopped off at a Portuguese restaurant and had……meat with vegetables, awesome! Potato croquettes, which reminds me of Spanish food I tell M and she rolls her eyes (Portugal is next door to Spain guys!). I like to state the obvious I bounce back, -pouts- To drink we had fig tea (nothing special and too sweet for my liking) and a passionfruit juice (again nothing special), then the man tries to place buns on our table and we tell him that we never ordered that, then he tells us to try it. We are like no thanks! First time we’ve felt like real real real tourist, you know the kind who get conned. Yeh that’s us this time!
Next up we head to Laikei and try a sandwich ice cream each! YUMMY!! Melon, vanilla and coconut flavour in the middle of two thin wafer biscuits! Perfect for summer! And so refreshing too!
We walk down to the main attraction of Macau, ruins of St Pauls, and along the way we see almond biscuits being made…….oooohh the smell is awesome! Imagine fresh almond biscuits and egg rolls are being freshly made, the smell! mhmmmm
After doing the snap snap, pose pose thing we head off to eat more. This time it’s tofufa (i heart this dessert hence the blog name!), which is not as nice as the ones I’ve taste in HK. Then walked about 5 minutes down the same road towards the famous ice cream shop! Coconut flavour only this time! Tour book tells me they usually have a range of flavours! Oh well, we both love coconut! Soft, creamy and lovely delicate coconut taste to it! Worth trying when you are in Macau next.
Then M tries this coconut pudding thing, I dont know the name in English. But they have this in HK too! You know the dessert that you can eat on a stick and it can also have red beans on it, sticky usually made in a bowl…..someone please tell me what this is called in English please! But yes, the Macau one is less sticky, more soft like jelly. Different.
Then our last meal of the day is eating fish skin dumplings! YUM! Especially since we were both feeling queasy from the sweet desserts! By 7pm, I’m on the boat back to HK. Another destination full of food! I am surprised I lost weight in HK.
