Looks absolutely wonderful! Despite the rain, it looks like you guys had a blast - and some cheap tasty eats.

PS - they make soup dumplings by using congealed broth - it's like putting a cube of broth jello in the center of the dumpling with fillings. I used to think they had some magical hands to put liquid in a dumpling and close it up quick enough!


Thank you SO MUCH, Albany Jane! That makes total sense.

We did have a great time - I finally today got up the post about our last day there! Wow, am I behind. Ah, well - no different than usual.

You are making me so homesick! Lovely photos and the dumplings look divine.

Thanks, steamy kitchen! It must have been really wonderful, growing up in HK.

I love your blog!

You did a very good job with your website sharing with us all about Macau. " Just love it"

We are a group of 3 generation will be going to HK for 4 days then continue on to Shanghai to watch the Shanghai Grand Prix. Would take one day of the 3 to visit Macau.

May I contact you if needed?

Your trip sounds fantastic! Please feel free to contact us, if there's anything we can help with.



Mom's Portuguese and her family had a small import business selling porcelain and such from Macao. She's made the egg custard tarts many times. I've also had them made with coconut - kind of like a moist macaroon in phyllo crust - and white beans. Yep...beans. The cooked beans are mashed with eggs, butter and sugar. A lot tastier than you might think.

Nakhash, thanks for the comment~ Beans in the egg custard actually sounds like a terrific idea, but I love Japanese adzuki bean desserts, so there you go. Sounds like a great family business!
