- Milk Pudding
Milk pudding might not as popular as the Portuguese Egg Tarts or the Pork Chop burger but it is a must try.
There are three variations of milk puddings; the double layer milk pudding, the egg milk pudding and the ginger milk pudding.
The double layer milk pudding is soft and it has two layers of milk on top of the pudding. The two layers can be seen during the cooking process but usually it is hard to spot when you taste it.
The texture is soft and the taste is rich with milk. This is really gorgeous as it is not too sweet but the taste and scent of the milk is heavenly. This is definitely our top choice in terms of Macanese food.
For the Egg Milk Pudding, the texture is not as soft as the double layer milk pudding but it comes with hints of scent of the egg. It is still good as you can hardly fine such delicate pudding in other parts of the world.
The Ginger Milk Pudding is another version of milk pudding infused with ginger. This is very strong in ginger flavour and overwhelmed the original taste of the milk pudding. However, there are still many people love this.
