taking a food chance in macau

In places on April 19, 2011 at 3:11 pm

our hotel booking in macau didn’t come with breakfast so we took that as a very welcome opportunity to discover something good. we pretty much walked into the first hole-in-the-wall place that had somebody smiling at the doorway and we were well-rewarded.

first of all, they had an english translation of their menu. rare enough. determined to do it the chinese way, i had congee. shredded duck the first time and century egg the next

camille opted for the specialty of the house which is noodles with wonton and fish roe

this dish was a good experience, something quite new for us. the fish roe gave a good sea saltiness that was a definite perk-upper to start the day.

the name of the place was wong kun, but our lesson for these breakfasts was not so much whether to try wong kun or not but to encourage travelers to macau to take a chance on the non-tourist eating places. it would be hard to imagine getting a bad meal, and the chances for nice surprises are quite good.
