Macau has reopened to the outside world, prompting a trip over from Hong Kong for the first time in nearly three years. One of the first places I wanted to visit was Taipa Village to see how old favourite restaurants and food shops had fared during the pandemic. Sadly, some are no more, while I gleefully found others had survived.

One of the more notably findings, perhaps not surprisingly, was the crowded conditions along Rua do Cunha, even on a late Tuesday morning and early afternoon. It has always been crowded here but on weekdays? I encountered mainland Chinese tourists nonstop packing the street and forming very long queues the likes I don't recall facing during pre-pandemic times on weekdays. Places like Lord Stow's (egg tarts), Fong Kei (almond cookies) and other popular take-away food shops had endless waits just to enter the shops throughout the day. I can only imagine what the scene is like on weekends right now.

It seems there is serious pent up demand by tourists eager to get back into Macau after so long and buy their favourite local snacks and other foods. As such, it may be challenging to partake in this activity along Rua do Cunha for a while. I'm happy the shops have this much business right now but tourists need to prepare themselves for long queues and massive crowded conditions for the time being.

This is a street of findings! right after you enter this street directly to the right there is a famous restaurant for their freshwater Eel it's a bit rubbery but the overall taste is fantastic it is a local specialty that you need to try. and walking down there are a lot of gift shops for tourist and their Bak Gua is with lots of varieties there's beef, pork, and chicken flavour. you can spend abt 2-3 hours here including having a meal there!

This is the famous 'food street' in Taipa Village and a place usually crowded with tourists, lined up shoulder-to-shoulder along this narrow pedestrian lane, nibbling their way through the many food stops, pastelarias, snack shops and restaurants.

Sadly, that is not the case this week as much of Macau is shut down due to the Coronavirus Outbreak. Passed by Rua do Cunha at 12.15pm recently and found the entire street closed with the exception of one Koi Kei Bakery on the north end, a couple more smaller shops nearby and the Starbucks on the southend. Just a few people passing through - such a stark contrast to normal days when Rua do Cunha is bustling with crowds

...for some peace and quiet, which is surprising given the thronging crowds on this particular thoroughfare. It serves as a decent introduction and tourist base but beyond a few decent restaurants, there's not much reason to stick around for long here, and the number of other tourists will confirm that feeling.

This is the main street in Taipa Village and gives you a big taste of local culture. The small street predominantly sells food.

Rua do Cunha is the central thoroughfare of the Taipa village. It is now totally occupied by souvenir shops. Noisy and dirty are the only descriptions.

Cafe Veng Kei is local eatery at the corner of Rua do Cunha and Ru Correida da Silva in Taipa Village. This is place for Hong Kong/Macau style breakfast and bakery items that won't break your wallet.

There are quite a few places like Cafe Veng Kei but this one is particularly well situated. These days, the building is decorated with painted food items and English signage, making it more approachable for tourists. Staff don't speak English so be ready to order in Cantonese or just point to the pictures or items on the bakery counter that you want.

Here you can order local style breakfast (egg, ham with rice/noodle or as a sandwich). They serve fish balls, chopa bao (pork chop bun) and the likes along with a local style milk tea. A fair take away item from here is a pineapple bun (po lou bao) which you can eat with a cup of tea or just order to go to nibble on while walking the streets of Taipa Village.

In the end, not outstanding food at Cafe Veng Kei but a fair place to try if you want to experience a local Chinese style eatery the way the Macanese do it here in Macau.

This is the area in which you get your Michelin-starred street food, e.g. Lord Stowe's Portuguese tarts, Gelatina Musang Mok Yi Kei for their durian icecreams (I actually liked their cucumber jelly, very refreshing in Summer) and Fong Kei Pastelaria for local pastries, mainly their famous biscuits.
