Cheap Burmese-style noodles in Macau worth the trek

On the non-lunch hours of a Monday afternoon, this Burmese-style noodles shop in Macau was full, with three other people waiting for their takeaway orders outside. We started talking to one lady, and she mentioned how busy this place always is, recommending the fish soup noodles. We really came here for the coconut chicken curry noodles though. So we tried both. Fish soup ho fun noodles You can see the soup base is very thick; it’s very rich in fish flavour, which is also why that lady suggested ordering it with ho fun noodles rather than egg noodles, as the former can better soak up the fish taste in the soup. I’m a huge fan of fish, so that was a good call and this was my favourite one! Coconut chicken curry egg noodles This is what we came for and it definitely lived up to our high expectations (having travelled MOP80 on a cab for it…). The soup is as flavourful as it looks, though the chicken meat was not excellent. I wouldn’t have expected it to be …

Affordably fine Italian food at Sheraton Macao’s Bene

I know no one thinks of Italian food when they visit Macau. I came here (by chance) about a year ago and absolutely loved it! To the point that I decided to come again for my birthday this year. See also: Lazy foodie’s one-day guide to Macau From starter, soups, pasta to mains, the food was executed deliciously! They gave us a free special birthday dessert, so we didn’t get a chance to try their dessert menu. But there’ll be a next time for sure. See my *must order* recommendations below! Cream curd filled mozzarella with tomatoes and basil oil (HKD/MOP 148) Just one of those refreshing starters I was in the mood for and it definitely met my expectations! Tuscany seafood soup with garlic bread (HKD/MOP 128) *must order* Considering it’s soup, this was probably one of the pricier items we had. But the flavours were so authentic and substantial; they really put a lot of seafood in there. There were prawns, mussels, octopus, salmon and more, and they tasted great! Butternut pumpkin soup, seared scallops, parma ham (HKD/MOP …

Lazy foodie’s one-day guide to Macau

Everyone always seems to be busy these days, but no Hong Kong-er can be too busy for a one day or one night trip to Macau. But if you’re too lazy to think of what to do, follow this sightsee-less one-day guide and eat all day! 1. Stay at Conrad If you’re staying overnight, keep yourself close to the must-eats, but away from the crazy crowd in Venetian (seriously, one of their entrances on a Tuesday afternoon was rush hour at Admiralty). Conrad is just across the road from Venetian (in Sands Cotai Central) and is my favourite hotel so far. It’s classy, clean and staff are very helpful, but just a tad pricier. Laksa from Golden Pavilion 2. Have an amazing bowl of Burmese noodles for lunch Walk next door to City of Dreams and devour a delicious bowl of Laksa or Myanmar-style coconut curry chicken noodles at the Golden Pavilion, bang in the middle of its casino. If you’re not truly that lazy, the truly cheap and local option would be at 成群小食店. See Cheap …
