Estab De Comidas Ngao Keo Ka Lei Chon (牛記咖喱美食), Rua de Cinco de Outubro, Macau

Macau, Estab De Comidas Ngao Keo Ka Lei Chon

We came over to Macau this trip to visit the ruins of Saint Paul. It was a lot more to look at than what many pictures on the web had suggested. We had time for one meal and ended up here (G/F, 1 Rua de Cinco de Outubro, tel : +853 2895 6129).  There were posters up on the shop front mentioning that they had been listed in the Hong Kong/Macau Michelin Guide for a few consecutive years; so I'm guessing they're well known, at least to the locals.

One of the items this shop was known for were their crab fat noodles (蟹黃撈麵). Man this was good, but we definitely would not have minded if there were more of that rich creamy gooey stuff to go with the noodles. Doesn't any other shop do this in Hong Kong?

We ordered some lamb brisket with rice. Apparently, the lamb briskets are only on the menu during winter and not the rest of the year.

It wasn't bad, but this was a traditional Chinese recipe where the spices used also help remove that gamey flavour from lamb. The broth was flavourful but I'm probably never ordering this again since I couldn't taste much lamb.
