Along a nondescript alley in Taipa Village, Tai Lei Loi Kei dishes out a favorite Macanese comfort food—pork chop buns. The popular local snack consists of a large marinated bone-in pork chop sandwiched between crispy yet chewy baguette-like Portuguese buns.
Tai Lei Loi Kei’s pork chop buns have satisfied Macanese bellies since opening over 50 years ago. In the 1960’s, the restaurant supplied the formerly impoverished Taipa with 200 pork chop buns every day to help the Macau Municipal Council of the Islands tide the population over.
I love how creative their menu is - combining Hong Kong staple food with western flavours. They’re also very generous with their portions!!! It is definitely my go-to place for lunch and brunch in Hong Kong. Their dinner menu is also very interesting!
