Macau Wong Chi Kei Noodle and Congee Restaurant8 June, 2010
Macau boasts a wide variety of good food e.g. egg tarts, pastry snacks. Cantonese noodles is another one of Macau’s specialty. Conveniently located at Senado Square (議事亭前地), the Wong Chi Kei Noodle and Congee Restaurant (黄枝記) is one of the must-go place for Cantonese bamboo noodles. So successful and popular is Wong Chi Kei that there are also franchises in nearby Hong Kong e.g. in the HK airport.
The Cantonese noodle is smooth and cooked well with the flavorful soup base. This high standard is repeated even in its Hong Kong airport franchise. All this goodness just for 21 MOP. The serving is quite small though.
Besides its famous bamboo noodles, Wong Chi Kei also offers a variety of other food e.g. deep fried wontons (22 MOP) – not worth it though; mostly flour and Macau Pork Chop Bun (15 MOP) – lots of bone but quite authentic tasting, its comparable to the famous Taipa Pork Chop Bun (which I will cover in another post).

@ Linjie and DC. Both the porkchop buns and the Wonton Noodles quite delicious. In fact, we went back to eat the wonton noodles again at their franchise in HK airport during our HK Disneyland trip!! Wonder when will they come to Singapore to open a branch here?!! =)
