Hunger for Alleyways

For almost four years I lived a short distance from Macau–the ferry from Shenzhen only took about an hour, which made it a prime destination for a day or two escape from the mainland. I’m not much for gambling, so I usually wandered the streets in search of interesting foods. Every time I visited the city I stopped at a grocery store near Senado Square–though I could never remember the exact location and usually got lost–and bought a pound of coffee for a fraction of the price I would pay in Shenzhen.Macau_street

I enjoyed discovering narrow streets and alleys that cars couldn’t drive through. On one of my final trips to Macau I found this gem not far from Senado Square. It was home to a few restaurants and shops. Most importantly, I stumbled upon Dragon Mama Cuisine–a quaint noodle shop with a few unique dishes. I don’t know if it’s still there, but it was well worth stopping in for a meal or snack.

    It never occurred to me you could go to Macau so often, living in Shenzhen. Now I’m a little jealous of people who live in SZ just because they can grab such incredible food in Hong Kong AND Macau so easily.
