Pastelaria Fong Kei: Michelin Guide Macau Street Food Bakery
This year, the Michelin Guide Macau and Hong Kong 2016 included street food for the first time. There are twelve Street Food restaurants are listed in the Michelin Guide for the first time. One of them is Pastelaria Fong Kei.
The century old pastry shop is located in the touristy area of Rua do Cunha. Established in 1906, Pastelaria Fong Kei is still going very strong with their popular almond cookies and wife biscuits.
In the popular street of Rua do Cunha, you can find long queues outside of the small shop of number 14. Unlike the other commercialised bakeries, there is no tasting products so you just have to buy them.
It is said that they use pork lards in their biscuits and that’s why u get the slight fragrant in their biscuits.
We bought their almond cookies and we loved it. Compare to Pastelaria Chui Heong (another old timer), Fong Kei’s almond cookies is slightly sweeter but they are still top of the rest.
You must try their almond cookies as well as other homemade cookies from this bakery. They must be really good or else they won’t be inducted in the Michelin Guide Macau Food Street List. When we visited the shop, they were not listed in the Michelin Guide yet so we are not sure whether they increase their food prices. We hope you like our story and enjoy the almond cookies!

If you plan to visit Macau, we will recommend AirAsia as the first choice as it flies direct from Kuala Lumpur to Macau.
We have been flying with AirAsia for years and we flew with them to other destinations too. Hence, in recent years we flew from Kuala Lumpur to Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Macau. We also flew with AirAsiaX from Kuala Lumpur to Australia and Japan.
