Estabelecimento de Comidas Choi Tung Kei is a restaurant located in the middle of Venceslau de Morais avenue, the northern part of Macau. This is a typical cha chaan teng spot, where locals flock for simple meals of great portions and affordable prices. Featuring almost everything a Cantonese café offers–pineapple bun with butter, cheese, and ham, french toast with condensed milk, peanut butter, and butter, coffee, tea–it also serves full meals with highlighted dishes being stir-fried noodles with seafood or beef, beef, and pork minchi (with plain rice, vegetables, and a fried egg).
The restaurant is usually filled with locals looking for a quick meal at lunchtime and late afternoon, but also early dinner. There are numerous offices and warehouses nearby, which make this a popular joint amongst those looking for takeaway or delivery service as well. It’s advisable to call ahead and order delivery as lunch hours are the busiest and takeaway can take longer than usual.
