Portuguese Chicken Saved My Macau

Rainy, rainy. Tsk.

Despite my conflicting schedule, I still managed to squeeze a Macau visit. By squeeze, I mean 2 hours in Macau - 3 if you count the time I wasted queueing for immigration. If being harried so bad from trying to catch my return ferry to HK was miserable enough, it rained hard when I was in Macau. I love my quirky city walks, and believe me, it's no fun when you don't have an umbrella, or when you're galoshing through puddles.

However, all was washed away when I had lunch. I literally stumbled into a Macanese eatery (called Cidade on Rua de Sao Laurenco), and fortunately, someone knew how to speak English. The kind fellow recommended Portuguese Chicken and here's what it looks like.

Mmmmm...Portuguese chicken....

It may look like curry, but it's kind of far from that taste. The sauce is a buttery concoction, plus the oven-burnt chicken skin adds a yummy smoky taste to the chicken. Apart from those delectable custard pies, now I have something to look forward to my next Macau visit. Apart from seeing the city other than the ferry terminal.

One hour for immigration?? Damn. Was it the long line that kept you, or were you held up at the immigration counter with lots of questions?

I'm going to HK next month and we're planning on a Macau sidetrip, but if the immigrations is too much of a hassle...

It was the slow, ineffective line...

Still, go to Macau - it's definitely worth it =)
