What I Ate in a Day in Macau (Dec 2018)

On this short trip, I basically went from shop to shop tasting all the egg tarts, pork chop buns and durian ice cream, which were everywhere.

Margaret’s Cafe

Macau Portuguese egg tarts are different from real natas and I actually prefer them this way. I tried them from Margaret’s and Lord Stow’s, which are two of the most famous shops (although there are other local shops that are just as good).

Pork Chop Bun

Macau pork chop buns are one of the most popular street foods there — a lot of shops have it! Here are two shops that I went to: Tai Lei Loi Kei (above) and Sei Kee Cafe (below).


I also got a milk tea to go.

Durian ice cream

For some reason I got two of everything – just wanted to try each thing from at least two different shops to see if they’re really different! And they were all slightly different.

mango mochi

This mango mochi was one of the best I ever had — the mango was SO fresh and the piece was huge – the mochi skin was thin!


Of course you can’t go to Macau without going to the casinos. They were nicer than Vegas in my opinion (don’t kill me).

The buffet at the Wynn was AMAZING. Everything tasted just as good (if not better) than they looked! I was surprised because buffets are usually not great. Even the way to the Wynn hotel was cool — you go on a gondola overlooking a body of water that transport you to the entrance.


I loved how artsy and futuristic some of the casino hotels were.
