@e_for_eat) who’s settling in with her job in Macau for a morning mini food crawl.
a 6-course, 4-hour epic meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant we headed out for even more food. Nothing to do with the quality and quantity of the dinner (quite the contrary, it was fabulous), but somehow we just felt like having some starchy treats to conclude our evening (and yes we do have a crazy appetite). A short hop on the cab we arrived at this popular late-night diner called Fei Jai Man (肥仔文) in the old town district of Taipa, right on time as we managed to fetch their last table. The place was crowded and buzzing with people, even more so later at night with scores of people waiting outside and their cars just parked on the street. There’s nothing more satisfying than a hearty bowl of crab congee, and our new found favorite of sautéed corns with fried garlic and chilies. Only after that we called it a night – 6 meals later in 15 hours since our arrival.
dimsum lunch at the Four Seasons we headed down for more food in the afternoon in Taipa at the famous (and touristy) Rua do Cunha. Last time we had great meals at Café Pui Kei and Café Tai Lei Loi Kei, both of which came recommended by our friend J of Chicken Scrawlings, but this time we decided to try something fancier, at an artisan café/shop called Quarter Square just a block away from the main street. The shop was not just an Espresso Bar but a studio, workshop with retail space with a carefully curated collection of household and design goods. I was drawn in more by the merchandise but they also had an interesting selection of coffee and drinks. I tried their seasonal Eggnog Latte and it was great, and it was nice spending time just sitting outside, enjoying a bit of the winter sunshine, while stopping and watching as the crowds of visitors speeding through the ever-busy alleys.
And just we were done with our coffee, it's time for dinner...
