杜荣记美食 (Du Rong Ji Mei Shi)

You didn’t think that I climbed all 66 steps at The Ruins of St. Paul’s and then scaled further up the Fortaleza do Monte without having a feast first, did you? 😉

Well, just before the old street walkabout, my friends brought me to 杜荣记美食 (Du Rong Ji Mei Shi) for brunch.

Red Beans in Iced Coffee.
I have never had this before.
It was a literal combination of Red Bean Soup Dessert (with the dried orange peel) mixed into iced coffee.
A rather weird combo and needed some getting used to.
I ended up eating the tender beans but forgoing the coffee.

Pork Chop Burger.
One of the must-eat foods when visiting Macau is this item.
Pork chop was well seasoned and fried to perfection but in general, this type of burger (from any eateries) tend to be on the dry side as there are no extra sauce to accompany it unless you add in some chilli sauce (available on the table).

Dumplings.
My friend from Macau said that thousands of these (from Du Rong Ji) are sold yearly during the Dragon Boat Dumpling Festival.

Glutinous Rice Dumplings.
Eaten with 3 types of sauces – Chilli, Sweet and Sesame.
My friend liked it with a bit of sugar, too.

Radish Cake.
My first go at radish cake with sesame paste.
The cake was very soft and went well with the trio dipping sauces (chilli, sweet and sesame).

Fish paste dumplings.
Pure fish paste made of dace, the dumplings were not oily at oil.

Fried Egg Noodles with Cabbage.
There’s a fantastic chew (QQ-ness) to this wok hei infused dish.

Gingko Nut Porridge.
Simmered for hours, the plain congee was smooth and runny.
Goes very well with the fried noodles and some fried chicken wings.

杜荣记美食

Du Rong Ji’s set-up is very much like the old school Hong Kong styled cafe or 茶餐廳 (Char Chaan Teng) as we Asians call it. They serve all-day breakfast items and no frills set meals. Prices are very reasonable as this is where locals eat.

I went there with two friends, one from Hong Kong and the other from Macau (not Macanese). Generally, Hong Kongers are food snobs and justifiably so as they are spoilt by the many wonderful tasting dishes be it in the streets or malls in their country. My Hong Kong friend was not nearly as impressed as I was but the meal was satisfying enough.

Out of all the food we had, I especially enjoyed the simple dishes like gingko nut porridge, the fried noodles, radish cake, and who can resist chicken wings and the deep-fried dough fritters? Not me!

    Some very well known food where. I’m glad you got your fill before continuing.

  3. The lane reminds me of a few China Towns in some American cities. Seems they love the narrow streets the best.
    Thanks for the kind comments.
