... my fellow favourite condiments from 100C Steamboat. Sambal belacan, 100C special sauce, fried garlic and shallot.


... ALGJ took Hainanese chicken's condiment and honey mustard & mayonnaise.


... I ordered the vegetarian set.


... 1 of the reasons I come here for dinner, the original flavoured bubble tea.


... boiling my stuff, vegetarian set indeed looks very unappetizing.

ALGJ has been craving for steamboat for a while now. She keeps bugging me for this. Finally, we came here for dinner today. This 100C Steamboat outlet was initially opened in NZX. My favourite, as usual, the millions of choice on the condiments. This time around, ALGJ spotted something better, the honey mustard & mayonnaise.

I went for the vegetable set, hoping to keep my strict diet in check. Unfortunately, the taste was rather bland. I was crying for more meat as I progress. ALGJ threw me 1/2 of her set, which made me very full.

I had a very very nice bubble tea last time when this outlet was in NZX. I keep thinking of it. Hence I must order this today. Unfortunately, it was quite runny and bland. I guess things change, to worst.

... iced lime, Thai style.


... one of Thai's usual delicacy, glutinous rice with mango, soak in coconut milk.


... I was craving for fried prawn crackers ever since AC told me we are gonna have dinner here.


... let's try the original Thai style fried rice, see if it's up to par with our local version.


... AC ordered the Pattaya fried rice.

This time around, AC brought me to The Summit for some Thai food. I was having rather high expectation on the Thai-style fried rice cause the last good Thai-style fried rice I ever had was around 8-9 years ago, back in Ming Tien food court in Taman Megah. Unfortunately, this fried rice was mediocre. So I had to had it with the jalapeno, lots of it. Somehow, the soya sauce failed me as well. AC’s Pattaya fried rice was reddish in colour. Much like ketchup fried rice. His egg skin (:P) was quite nice though.

I had the glutinous rice mango as dessert, so wash down the not-so-nice Thai-style fried rice. My lime juice was exceptionally sourish. I had to cringe every time I suck it through my straw. By the time I had the prawn crackers, I was feeling quite full. The chilli sauce was so-so only. I was expecting much better ones.

... steamed nuts, not as sweet and juicy as Tai Thong's nuts.


... sweet and sour fish fillet rice.


... Kung Pao Chicken Rice.


... the bill. Seems like the steamed nuts were free of charge.

First time patronising this restaurant. Our set cost us only RM9/pax. Apparently, the steamed peanuts were complimentary. The taste were mediocre, but for such cheap price, you have a plate of rice with 2 types of vegetables and 1 meat as main course. Then you have a choice of hot or cold Chinese tea, bottomless. It’s really no complain if you are looking for a budget meal.

The sweet & sour sauce on fish fillet was acceptable, but the fish fillet was rather foul. I guess the fish was not as fresh as it could be. As for the Kung Pow chicken, it was nothing Kung Pow at all. Avoid the Kung Pow chicken set at all cost.

In the end, you’ll end up with a rather farty lunch.

... char cheong noodle.


... fish slice noodle soup.


... dumplings.

First time having lunch here. Last time I came here was having breakfast and I tried the various flavours of the dumplings there. Today, I had something more filling. I ordered the char cheong noodle, which looks delicious, yet it wasn’t. The fish slice noodle was not bad though. Dumplings were nothing to shout about.

A place I’ll reserve when I ran out of stuff to eat and in desperate moment.

... Smoked Chicken Foccacia still wrapped.


... it looks damn delicious cause I was dead hungry already.

The last meal of the trip was on AirAsia. I ordered the Smoked Chicken Foccacia for the return trip. The air stewardess was very naughty. She told us that my name wasn’t on the list, meaning that we didn’t place any order for the Smoked Chicken Foccacia. When I was about to give up, she asked for my IC for verification. It was then I realised that she pulled a fast 1 on me. Luckily I have my sandwich, as I was really hungry that time, not knowing if there’s anything else to eat. Probably she afraid that I might swallow her up if she deprive me of my food.

Being so hungry, the sandwich tasted exceptionally good. After eating the whole thing, it felt like I haven’t had anything. I missed my Subway sandwiches.

... satay stall by the road side.


... chicken satay bathed with chilli sauce.

Rating: 6.5/10

While we were strolling along the area, we saw a satay stall by the roadside. HL and I decided to give it a try. For MOP5 each, the satay sure tasted quite good. But it also translated to around RM2.50 each stick, which is almost triple those that I have from Kajang. The satay was well marinated and the sweetness from the seasoning were seeped into the meat. Though the seasoning used was rather different from those from Malaysia. HL decided to have a 2nd round of it later on.

... finally, I got my hand on a Portuguese tart.


... tastes a lot better than those selling here. At least it's sweeter on the egg custard and the skin was crispy and layered like croissant.

Today is the last day of the trip. We didn’t know what to have for lunch in Macau, hence we decided to go for souvenirs first. While we were at St Paul Street, there were many bakeries along the street. We went to try almost every types of almond cookies in those shops. I decided to hold back on consuming too much as I still needed to try the original Portuguese Tart in Macau, as those in Malaysia were really bad.

Unknown which shop to try, I simply decided to pick 1 from the most crowded one. It’s the Koi Kee tart. The taste was really good. Unlike what I had in Malaysia, the egg custard was actually sweet. Sweet enough that it’s just nice. The crust was flaking and crispy. Like a thousand layer croissant. I wished I could pack these home if only they remained fresh.

My conclusion was, one would never die of hunger being in Macau.
