one delicious bun.

Café Tai Lei Loi Kei
Largo Governador Tamagnini Barbosa
Taipa, Macau

Seems like it's the same everywhere. People queue where there's good food to be eaten. It usually doesn't apply for all stalls with queues but this one I agree with. Tai Lei is famous in town for their pork chop buns. It's simple; just a deep fried pork chop tenderloin sandwiched in a toasted bun. So simple yet extremely delicious. The pork was so tender and well marinated. What's better was the toasted bun that made biting into it such a pleasure.

Tai Lei sells a variety of things including pork chop noodles but before the 3pm that they start selling the buns, long queues form outside the stall just to make sure that they don't miss out cos the pork chop buns sell out really fast. If I'm not wrong, by the time you get there by 5pm, they'd be sold out already. Mum & Dad happened to be that late the last time so they missed the 'pork chop bun' boat.

I've read about other good pork chop buns in Macau. Afterall, it's a snack that they're well-known for. Until I try those, this absolutely stands now as the most delicious pork chop bun I've eaten. Not to mention that it only costs HK$ 11 and plus, I enjoyed the hot, fresh snack standing out in the cold. Oh! And don't forget that milk tea too...
