Hi Tankee, this thread can include Macau? Or maybe Macau should include in the China thread?

Century eggs at yung kee is fantastic. Go yung kee for roast goose and taboo the century egg back. The takeaway pack comes with preserved ginger slices.

The standard stuff to buy from Macau:

- Cookies, biscuits from Koi Kei

In addition, the Portuguese Egg Tarts from Margaret’s Café e Nata is nice :drool:
I highlighted it as one of my two not-to-be-missed snacks in Macau.

I think there is a Koi Kei in Chinatown. Have you tried the pastries at Chinatown? Do they taste the same as what you would have gotten in Macau?

It's the same stuff, imported into Singapore (hence, I would think that it taste the same).
There are less variety and things to choose from (not surprisingly) in Singapore.

I have two recommendations:


1. The boring option would be Tim Ho Wan.

Image

2. The authentic option would be Luk Yu Tea House.
