Singapore Noodles from Macau

Singapore Noodles

Here's a plate of Singapore Noodles from a random Cantonese noodle/congee shop in Senado Square called Meng Un (Unit Number 7A, 2832-2538). This thing was pretty darned greasy, but they loaded up on the curry powder, and the shrimp were super firm. I'm still so impressed with how fresh the seafood is in Macau.

Next door was a dessert shop called Leitaria I Son (2857-3638) selling some kind of "double-skin steamed milk" dessert. I'm not sure if I understood what the deal was with this double-skin stuff, as I couldn't see any skin on it at all. But this smooth milk-based pudding of sorts was comforting and refreshing for 16 Patacas (US$2).

Lucky you!
I love Double Skin Steamed Milk but have only had them at Macau Express. Try Steamed Milk (without the skin) next time and you'll probably notice the (slight) difference.

I never, NEVER, ever liked Singapore noodles. First tried this infernal stuff in Washington DC's Chinatown back in the late-80s. Also had them in HK, London & San Francisco, and they are just all simply awful!

Singapore noodles don't quite exist in Singapore!

Great Post!
Macau is such a wonderful place. Like they say in Portuguese, “não há outra mais leal” (there is no other more loyal).
