Continuing from our first MACAU post……
Our journey adjourned to more sight seeings at Rua da Felicidade (“Happiness Street”) and soon enough, our tummies need to be fed again. Gosh we really get hungry fast at Macau
We quickly made a late lunch stop at the Oja Sopa De Fita Cheung Kei (祥記麵家). A restaurant hidden away on the historial street of Macau, this family business from the 70′s still runs the same way; using bamboo sticks to make their noodles. Cheung Kei is very well-known for their wanton noodles with delicious soup base as well as dried prawns and bonito. Wantons (dumplings) and stir prawn roe noodles? They are local favourites!
Signature Prawn Roe Noodles ‘Har Zi Lo Meen’ – MOP 23 (RM9.20)
Love the springy hand-made noodle but we still find this dish a bit dry as they only uses the shrimp roes to toss with the noodles. However, each bite is still bursting with flavours of the prawn roes
Poached Fish Skin
I personally dislike having fish skin all the time. Well, thanks to its fishy taste. However, Cheung Kei’s version of fish kin totally changed my skeptical taste buds as it’s really crunchy. Cooked together with ginger, shallots and soy sauce, this dish is totally ‘fishy smell free’!
Another favourite of the house (recommended by the lady boss) is the Deep Fried Golden Mace Balls – MOP31 (RM12.40)
The mace balls are evenly coated with rice crackers and deep-fried till golden.
Best served with the dip mixture of oyster and chinese wine. Some may find this dip too overwhelming but we absolutely loved it.
