Conveniently located in Macau’s Largo do Senado, Wong Chi Kei serves up similar dishes to the smaller noodle shops you might find on the side streets, but at higher prices and in a cleaner environment. It attracts a lot of tourists because it’s in all the guidebooks, but it’s also popular with locals because it’s good. Be prepared to share a table with strangers, because that’s what happens at places like this. If you don’t know what to order, just eat out of somebody else’s bowl at your table. It’s not an acceptable custom or anything, I just think it’d be funny when a bunch of Macanese people start giving you confused looks and yelling at you to stop eating their food.
Wonton Noodle Soup
I guess this is one of the few places left in Macau that uses actual bamboo sticks to make their noodles. I ordered the wonton noodle soup because it said right on their place-mat, “You have to try our wonton noodle soup.” If a place-mat explicitly tells me what to order, I’m going to order it. It could’ve said “You have to try our old socks” and ten minutes after sitting down I’d probably be eating a dirty sock. This is about as basic and authentic as wonton noodle soup gets, so if you like wonton noodle soup you’ll probably like this. Nothing fancy, just clean flavors and well-cooked wontons. With noodles. In soup. It’s wonton noodle soup.
