Macau cuisine is internationally renowned. Want something else besides those recommendations for restaurants on travel books? Come along with Sun Travel’s food specialists, the true connoisseur of Macau local food, and taste the featured dishes at Freguesia de São Lázaro.
Estabelecimento Comidas San Hong Fat
Estabelecimento Comidas San Hong Fat is easily to be missed as just another tea restaurant without the food specialist’s reminder. The Pineapple Bun with Pork Chop, Cheese and Egg is a must-try. The bun,unlike the usual butter roll that other restaurants use, is crispy outside and soft inside. It is sweet but not overpowering. The pork chop is complemented with rich cheese and scrambled eggs, which also enrich the texture.
The combination originated from the restaurant’s regular costumers.As it became more popular, the owner added the item to the menu to make it more accessible.
Another recommended dish is the Baked Pork Chop Rice.The restaurant has transformed the typical dish into a delicacy. The homemade tomato sauce has the right balance of acidity and sweetness and a consistency of half-melted cheese, which tastes substantial and fresh. The tomatoes are spread across the rice and complement the deep fried pork chop well. The dish is simply addictive.
For dessert, the food specialist recommends the Thick French Toast. Even with a thickness of 8 to 10 cm, it is evenly coated with an egg sauce. The toast is golden and crispy, and filled with peanut butter.It is further enhanced with butter and unlimited maple syrup on top.
Loja de Sopa-Fitas Chung Iun
For a lighter meal, follow the food specialist with the limousine to the nearby Lojade Sopa-Fitas Chung Iun for its famous wontons. They may look simple but great skills and fresh ingredients are required to make good ones.
The wontons has thin skins and rich in the stuffing. Fresh shrimps are used and the stuffing tastes flavourful and springy. They are of good size and the soup carries the fragrance of flounder fish. The spring onions on top further enhance the flavours. The best way to taste the dish is to scoop some soup and a wonton with a spoon and eat them together.
地道葡式甜品又怎少得木糠布丁？這種源自葡萄牙的甜點，葡文名稱為“ Serradura ”，正是木糠布丁專門店沙度娜的店名由來。沙度娜木糠布丁所用的奶油十分綿軟，奶味濃郁，即使經過低溫冷凍，質感依然幼滑。至於表面由餅乾打成的“ 木糠”，顆粒幼細而平均，基本呈粉末狀，經逐層冷凍後，搭配凍忌廉一起吃，甜而不膩，質感豐厚。
The shop is named after the famous Macau dessert Serradura – or sawdust pudding – made with whipped cream and crumbled Marie biscuits. The cream is rich and soft even though it was kept at a low temperature. The biscuits crumbles,like sawdust, are of even size and finely crushed. The cream and the crumbles are layered in a cup, resulting in a rich texture. The pudding is sweet but not too heavy.
There are plenty of flavours for customers to choose, such as original,chocolate, crushed nuts, mango and green tea. The tricolour one is a must-try.Its top layer is the original flavour, the middle one is mango and the bottom one is blueberry. The three-in-one experience is irresistible with a rich texture.
