  • Well good afternoon from Macau (澳門 - 澳门).

  • It is lunchtime over here so we're going to be sampling some Macanese street food.

  • Yeah, we're just basically going to wander around and try as many tasty bites as we possibly

  • can.

  • So we kind of have a list of things we want to try here in Macau (澳門 - 澳门).

  • Yes.

  • And this was not on here.

  • Wasn't on the list but we still found it interesting.

  • So what is this one?

  • So this is an egg pudding but I got the chocolate egg pudding.

  • Yeah, they also had green tea right?

  • Yeah.

  • Um, so yeah it is like an egg.

  • They sliced off the top.

  • I don't even know how you make this to be honest.

  • Do you shape the egg until it is creamy?

  • I have no idea.

  • We have no idea what this is and that is what makes it so exciting.

  • Mmmm.

  • Well it does not taste like boiled eggs so that is excellent.

  • It is really creamy.

  • Look at that.

  • Is it sweet?

  • Like how yeah.

  • Yeah, it is literally like pudding.

  • Okay.

  • Maybe it is just like pudding that has been put inside of the eggshell.

  • Maybe that is just the preparation of it.

  • Look.

  • Oh wow.

  • This is a mystery to me.

  • No idea how it is made but it is so delicious.

  • Wow.

  • And Sam doesn't like eggs so he was like no I won't have one.

  • So are you going to eat it all then?

  • You're missing out.

  • Seriously this is like chocolate pudding.

  • It is so creamy, so smooth.

  • Unbelievable.

  • And how much was it?

  • Mmm.

  • We paid what was it?

  • 13 MOP ($1.60 USD).

  • 13 MOP for the chocolate one and eleven for the cream one.

  • So it took us a while to find a place that was serving pork chops this early.

  • But we finally found one.

  • Yeah, some of them weren't going to start serving them until 2pm.

  • Until 2 pm.

  • And it is around noon right now so oh bummer but we finally found somewhere and this pork

  • chop bun (豬扒包) is one of the most popular street foods you can find in Macau (澳門

  • - 澳门).

  • Yeah.

  • It is basically.

  • Oh wow.

  • Thank you.

  • Here comes our tea too.

  • It is basically considered a Macanese specialty.

  • Uh huh.

  • And it is almost considered like a Macanese hamburger.

  • Macau's take on a hamburger.

  • So you've got your pork chop (豬扒包) in the middle.

  • Yeah.

  • And then you have a crispy bun.

  • Well it is crispy on the outside and it is supposed to be soft on the inside.

  • So I am dripping sauce all over the place.

  • Time for me to just take a bite.

  • Bites right into the bone!

  • It smells so good.

  • We ordered one to share because we were planning on sampling a lot of street food but just

  • smelling that over here I'm like mmmm.

  • I could have my own.

  • That is really good.

  • Yeah?

  • It is a nice cut of meat.

  • A little bit fatty but juicy and the thing I really like about it is the bun.

  • So this is getting a little messy.

  • There is a reason why they gave us this paper bag.

  • I'm excited to pull out the bun.

  • The oil.

  • Now we've got grease all over the table.

  • Um let me just dig right in.

  • Yeah and guys be careful there is a bone on one of the sides.

  • Yeah.

  • I almost sunk my teeth into it and I came here to eat food not to visit the dentist.

  • So haha.

  • That is so good.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • You like that?

  • Look at all of those colors.

  • And the bread is so juicy.

  • Yeah.

  • The bread to me, I mean the meat is obviously really good but it is the bread that really

  • makes this.

  • Mmmm.

  • Do you like that?

  • And to go along with the pork chop bun (豬扒包) we got a milk tea (港式奶茶).

  • I thought this was bubble tea and it looks like bubble tea at first but it doesn't have

  • the pearls at the bottom.

  • It is just a nice like milky tea.

  • It does look pretty milky.

  • It has that milky looking consistency.

  • Mmmm.

  • Nice and sweet and so refreshing because it is really warm out.

  • Feeling satisfied?

  • Yeah, it was a nice tasty little snack.

  • And it was also cheap too.

  • It only came to 27 MOP ($3.35 USD).

  • Yeah, we're still going to be eating a lot more today don't worry.

  • Well the food adventures continue.

  • And just look at that color.

  • It is so yellow and uh it just looks amazing.

  • Next up we're having Pastel de Nata (蛋撻 - 蛋挞) and this is where you start to see

  • the Portuguese influence in Macanese cuisine.

  • This is something that you find everywhere in Portugal.

  • We had these when we were in Lisbon.

  • There is a really famous shop um in Belem.

  • And yeah these are really tasty.

  • I've had these often.

  • I know.

  • So let's dig in.

  • So excited to be having them again.

  • Mmmm.

  • And the Macanese take on it is really good.

  • Mmmm.

  • Really good.

  • Look at that.

  • It is like so custard-y inside.

  • Wow.

  • And we got these from what is considered to be a famous place for them.

  • It is called Lord Stow's.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • It is not from the original shop but it is from one of the branches and ah yeah we're

  • just really lucky to bump in to it.

  • It is so flakey.

  • Haha.

  • The exterior.

  • Look at that.

  • Can you see the layers these.

  • It is like Millefeuille.

  • I know.

  • It is so cheap too.

  • Like what are these 9 MOP ($1.10 USD) or something?

  • We paid 9 each.

  • My gosh.

  • I could just eat these all day.

  • All day long.

  • My turn.

  • Your turn.

  • Oh, I can't wait to try this.

  • Mmmm.

  • You can hear the flakiness when you bite into it.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • That is so good.

  • So flaky on the outside and so creamy and it has like a pudding like texture on the

  • inside.

  • This is so good.

  • And these um because you can also get egg tarts in Hong Kong (香港).

  • Yeah.

  • These are more traditional.

  • They're more Portuguese influenced whereas the ones in Hong Kong (香港) are definitely

  • a bit different.

  • They are more like tarts.

  • Yeah, they are less flakey.

  • You don't have this kind of layer on the top.

  • They just look more yellow on the outside and they're also a little more sugary whereas

  • I would describe these ones in Macau (澳門 - 澳门) as being more creamy and the pastry

  • part of it being more flakey and buttery.

  • They are so good thought like I said I could just be popping these in my mouth all day

  • long.

  • We have St. Paul's Ruins (大三巴牌坊) off in the background and Sam ready to sample

  • more food.

  • Yeah, so something you're going to find in Macau (澳門 - 澳门) well just about everywhere.

  • Especially around the Saint Paul's Ruins (大三巴牌坊) is you get this beef jerky (豬肉乾) that

  • is for sale.

  • Yeah.

  • And you buy these big slabs and they cut it up for you like there is just a huge amount

  • here.

  • So I'm going to try it.

  • I did sample this one.

  • It is sweet.

  • Is it beef or pork?

  • That is the question.

  • It is pork.

  • Pork.

  • Pork jerky (豬肉乾).

  • Mmmm.

  • That is really nice.

  • It has got like a sweet glaze on it.

  • It kind of reminds me of um if you've ever had a cooked ham that has been cooked in like

  • molasses or maple syrup or something like that.

  • Very Canadian.

  • Maple Syrup.

  • Uh huh.

  • It kind of has that glaze type of sweetness on the outside and it is nice meat.

  • It is not unlike other jerkys that I've had before it is not as chewy.

  • Um, it basically you just bite in to it and the meat basically disintegrates in your mouth

  • so it is nice.

  • We've got a lot.

  • Look at that.

  • Man.

  • We're going to be here for a while.

  • So it is now my turn to try it and this is actually the cheapest kind we saw at the shop

  • but you can get it with different glazes.

  • There was one that had black pepper all over it.

  • So let's see.

  • Mmmm.

  • Do you like that?

  • You're right.

  • It is like a sweet ham.

  • It is like a maple ham.

  • Haha.

  • Like an alternative Thanksgiving meal.

  • It is really good and when you think we have a lot more pieces left.

  • Mmhhmmm.

  • So for 45 MOP ($5.60 USD) it is pretty good value.

  • Check out how much we still have left.

  • Hopefully we can bring these on the boat.

  • Yeah, I snuck in a couple other pieces while we were waiting in between filming so.

  • We still have a lot left.

  • Alright Mr. Coco Legend what did you find?

  • So I have no idea if this is traditional Macanese snack but we saw this sign that said they

  • made handmade coconut ice cream.

  • Traditionally made so yeah.

  • Can't turn that down can we?

  • Can't turn that down.

  • Oh la lah.

  • And the best part about this and I haven't even tried it yet.

  • Check out this spoon.

  • The spoon looks like a shovel.

  • So yeah, I can shovel it in.

  • It is like shoveling snow that is why you like it you Canuck.

  • It kind of does look like snow.

  • Hahaha.

  • Look at that.

  • Is it like a sorbet?

  • I don't know.

  • Let's try it.

  • I wonder if it is more watery or more creamy.

  • Mmmm.

  • You really taste the coconut.

  • Yeah.

  • But it is just not milky.

  • It is like a sorbet would you say?

  • Yeah, like a gelato.

  • Yeah it is a bit more like a sorbet.

  • Um, it is really good.

  • You sound so disappointed that it is not creamy.

  • You know what I'm not disappointed.

  • It actually has a really strong coconut flavor and you can tell that it is natural coconut

  • too.

  • So it is actually really good.

  • I find it more refreshing than it is thick.

  • Mmmhmmm.

  • Like a normal ice cream is kind of thick and heavy but this is just refreshing and kind

  • of light with a nice coconut taste.

  • Not too sugary either too.

  • Just a little bit of sugar added.

  • Good stuff.

  • Mmmm.
