Malaysians are HUGE foodies. In fact, huge might even be an understatement!
Growing up in a multicultural country, we are spoilt for choices: Nasi lemak, roti canai or char kuey teow. Seriously, how does one even pick???
And since we’re such big foodies, we literally eat anything – and the humble street food is one of our favourites. Besides your usual Thailand, Japan, and Taiwan, here are more amazing street food that will leave your mouth-watering!

1. Portuguese egg tarts
We know egg tarts are easily available in Malaysia, but Macao is absolutely known for their egg tarts so we will NOT be skipping out on that.
Macao does egg tarts in their own unique way. These tarts have caramelised tops that resemble creme brûlée, giving them a unique flavour you can only get in Macao!
The best spot to try these tarts out has to be Lord Stow’s Bakery.
Aren’t these absolutely heavenly?
2. LemonCello Gelato
Who doesn’t love ice cream? We know we’d eat it no matter what the weather’s like!
Anyone who goes to Macao makes sure to make it to LemonCello Gelato, which has over 60 different flavours of ice cream, including beancurd, ginger, banana sesame, and even durian!
Be sure to try out their house special, the Limoncello gelato, too! We hear it’s to die for!
3. Pork chop buns
Okay guys, brace yourselves for this next one.
One of Macao’s famous street food has definitely got to be the pork chop bun, which consists of a tender, juicy piece of pork within a bun that’s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Looks good, right? Sorry, obviously not halal.

4. Steamed milk pudding
Who doesn’t love some good, comforting sweet milk pudding?
What makes this pudding so unique is the variety of flavours they come in, including their double skimmed milk pudding with red bean and their steamed milk with ginger.

These delicious flaky buns are stuffed with black pepper pork and spring onions, giving them a delectable savoury flavour that will satisfy anyone’s cravings!
7. Good quality Dim Sum
“What’s so great about this? Malaysia got no dim sum, is it?”
We know, we know! Although dim sum is readily available here, Malaysians will still inevitably try out their amazing version of dim sum.
Chong Shing, a small restaurant hidden away in a small street, serves high quality dim sum like shumai and mah lai goh (Cantonese sponge cake). This hidden gem is definitely one great place to try out amazing dim sum!
What’s more amazing about this place is that it even appeared on the Michelin Guide! Ha, now you know why we had to put this here!

Despite it’s weird nickname, Serradura (or sawdust pudding) is one of Macao’s original desserts. This simple yet delicious dessert consists of custard covered in biscuit crumbs, making it look like sawdust.
