MA KAI KANG Cafe (馬慶康咖啡室)
This local spot has a blend of classic Cantonese favourites such as char siu scrambled egg on rice and macaroni in tomato soup, but it’s their creative dishes that caught our eye. Our favourite is the Ovaltine french toast with cheese filling- an upgraded take on the classic french toast, coating it with a crunchy layer of Ovaltine flakes on top and filling it with melted cheese in the middle. Wash it down with a rich glass of milk tea or their colourful seasonal summer drinks.

NAM PING Café (南屏雅敘)
For a quick snack or breakfast, there’s nothing better than a warm sandwich and a glass of silky milk tea to get you fueled up. In Macau’s Nam Ping, they take things up a notch with a sandwich that is brimming with char-siu or roasted pork and ham, nestled in a golden layer of omelette. If you need a sweet treat, they also served a nostalgic Chinese style sugar-coated donut.
