Among the world’s most coveted food capitals today, Macau (officially a Special Administrative Region of China) tops many a list. The 12-square-mile city is home to 19 Michelin-starred restaurants, nine Bib Gourmand and the world’s first fusion cuisine, and was recognized in 2017 as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy for its singular culinary scene, but its street food culture may be its most popular feature with in-the-know travelers. Here are five top street dishes to prowl for in Macau.

 

Macau Egg Tart

This flaky pastry with a creamy custard filling was directly inspired by Macau’s nearly 500-year history as a Portuguese colony, drawing from Portugal’s famous pastel de nata. In Macau, the filling is creamier than in Portugal, and both are surface-fired for a crème brûlée finish.

 

Pork Chop Bun

Take a fried five-spice-marinated, bone-in pork chop and slap it on a toasted and buttered Portuguese “piggy” bun, and there you have the pork chop bun, beloved throughout Macau. It’s a simple snack often compared to the original American hamburger for its handheld convenience ideal for munching on the go.

 

Curry Fish Ball

Skewer stands are abundant on Macanese streets, offering varieties of meat, tofu and fish balls impaled on sticks and fried at your convenience. Select your favorites to build a custom skewer, then enjoy them in the curry sauce as beloved as the balls themselves. For the most local experience, choose at least one curry fish ball.

 

Mango Mochi

In Macau, these sticky rice cakes are stuffed with densely packed fresh fruit (not ice cream), and there’s quite a variety to choose from, but mango is a common favorite.

 

Almond Cookie

You’ll find these cookies, made from mung bean flour and almond, on every corner in Macau. Thicker and more substantial than traditional cookies, its biscuit-like qualities make it perfect for tea time.
