新好利咖啡饼店 @ Taipa, Macau


I was brought to this place initially by another group of friends about 2 years back. I was on free and easy for the whole day before I flew back to SG, so I decided I need to get my 猪扒包(Pork Chop Buns) fix hence I hailed a cab, and headed down to the 手信街of Taipa Island.

The shop is really old and run down adjoining another shop to their right which leads to the kitchen there. Very small and crampy if you meet a large crowd that day. Weekdays are perfect and I chose to be there after 2pm.

the shop... don't ask me how to pronounce in Portuguese...
This is the inner part of the shop... there is another part with the main door.
Ice Yuen Yang (Ice Tea with Coffee)
Birds Nest Egg Tart
Seriously, nothing special... Dunno where's the birds nest also... haha
Piping hot pork chop bun... This is the part when newbies will ask,"How to eat?" Haha... I used to ask that... Just find a way to eat it lah, you'll know when you come to that situation.
Chicken chop noodles. The chicken is not bad... noodles a bit on the hard side.
Address to the place.

Rating: 4/5. Standard dropped a little… The pork chop has a very strong ‘old’ oil smell.

Taste: Was ok. Should have ordered the egg tart instead of the birds nest one.

Portion: Average.

Price: Came up about HKD$50+. Pretty affordable.

RTE: Maybe only… Will look for other places cos pork chop buns are everywhere in Macau!

Location: See last picture.


美膳坊海鲜火锅饭店 @ Taipa, Macau


My friends brought me to this place which is located in the middle of the 手信街 of Taipa Island. From the outside, it looks like just an another seafood restaurant. But this restaurant has dishes which are really tasty and good!

Located along this 'Souvenir Street' of Taipa Island... Not Macau City's Souvenir Street.
Fresh steam prawns... Lovely sweet taste
Fwah! Never tried this before... This fish is not available in SG... In China it's known as the Tofu fish... very very soft and you can actually eat the bones too... The way they have done it here is really nice and tasty.
Fried Prawn Omelette
I was surprise they have this soup here. Pig's Stomach Soup with Salted Vegetables. Very teochew and it's peppery. Really missed this!
Roasted Pigeons. Very nice and juicy. 😉
Stir Fried Assorted Mushrooms... This is an excellent dish for mushroom lovers like me!
The last time I ate this dish was when my Cantonese grandma was still around. Very typical cantonese dish of steam chicken with ginger, chinese mushroom and spring onion. What's lacking are slices of dried red dates which will make the dish more authentic! But I'm happy anyways!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Love the way they cook here. No wonder it’s a regualr place for my friends.

Portion: Slightly above average.

Price: Didn’t pay for it but affordable when you have more people eating together.

RTE: Definitely!

Location: Just tell the cab drivers 手信街 of Taipa Island. It’s a short street, just stop at the middle. 🙂
