Prawn Roe Noodles from Oja Sopa De Fita Cheung Kei, Macau
I can't believe I've been to Macau so many times, and I haven't been to this street!!!
It's damn famous and damn gorgeous, and I haven't been there!
Hmmm~ but at least now I can say I have ^_^
We were there to find a famous noodle shop...
It was hot, humid, sticky, balmy, rainy...
PS. did you notice SC and his yellow backpack?
He went ahead of me to find the noodle shop, because we were starving and it was lunch time...
Thus, good luck to us...
The price to pay for dining at a famous place at lunch time :D
So, SC would queue, and I was sent to roam around to photograph the place...or whatever, basically, just get away from him and don't nag ^_^
I went and take more photos of the picturesque place...
Love the place.
...and kept eyeing this mobile ice cream "stall"
HK$20 for one tiny scoop! We overheard some people saying "I'd rather have Haagen Dazs". But guess what? No Haagen Dazs around, it's hot and you're hungry. Ice Cream uncle really knows how to make money! ^_*
I went to check on SC and his queue...
...whoa! The queue got even longer!!!
So I went back to stalking ice cream uncle some more...
I think he noticed and wasn't too happy about me stalking him.
Finally! We got our seat! Warning! Super tiny seats during peak hours, be prepared to squeeze your ass into a mini booth and smell the opposite diners' breath.
We started with the dry prawn roe noodles. It's delicious! Springy noodles with subtly flavored sauce and prawn roes. Yum!
Another must order, the pig trotter. I despise pig trotters and the gelatinous fatty bits, but sc insisted that I must try these. I could accept this, and had seconds, which probably means that it's extra delish?
We also had the golden fried fish balls, served with clam sauce. Super mega delicious!
Tasty "skin", perfectly chewy "meat" and delicious sauce. I could have tonnes of this with icy cold drinks. Yummeh!
This place is listed in most Macau travel books and sites...and we believe that it's extra crowded...thanks to...this lady on the wall!
Ah So from TVB's So Far So Good show.
Some of my friends said once an eatery gets a mention from Ah So, we should forget about visiting it, since it'd be so damn crowded or the food gets so expensive.
Hmmm, actually it wasn't so bad. If possible, try to avoid visiting this place at lunch time...after lunch time madness is over, I think you'll be able to have a table to yourself.
Unfortunately for us, after this lunch madness, we still had to continue our queueing adventure under the heat and the rain...in front of another "famous" dessert place. Sigh~
