Macau Restaurant - Recommended
87-93 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
This place is a pretty big chain but recommended by some Chinese tour books, so we figured why not give it a shot. Glad we did since this place served some pretty damn fun food for a cheap price. Service was pretty subpar, but the food was cheap and the items we ordered were pretty fun to eat - the amazing pork sandwich was $2.50 USD. Kinda strange vibe as you walk downstairs and enter what feels like a cheezy lounge...leather sofas, lcd's on the wall etc. But out comes the food and pretty solid for the price.
The Portugese are known for their bread and after colonizing Macau, it looks like they’ve incorporated their breads in their cuisine. This bread was crispy on the outside, but so fluffy and flavorful on the inside. Add to that this nicely fried pork which was seasoned perfectly – some type of spice I couldn’t put my finger on. And the nice onions that were cooked till just sweetened, but still slightly crunchy. I could really eat 5 of these in one sitting. It’s tiny and delicious!
Oxtail Curry **
Perfectly tender oxtail with a nice curry sauce – kinda like a combo between a Japanese and Singapore stlye curry. Awesome with the white rice and I can’t say enough how tender this oxtail was.
Egg Tart *
The Portuguese are famous for their egg tarts, but this was just ok. The crust was buttery, but too firm and the egg filling was way too buttery. Still good enough to eat though!
