Restaurante Tai Lei Loi Kei at The Venetian Macao

Cafe Tai Lei Loi Kei Macau- pork chop pineapple bun HK$36-001
When I did research on places to eat in Macao the pork chop bun of Tai Lei Loi Kei kept coming up. Even though I’m not a fan of this unique pairing I decided to give it a try when I saw their outlet in the food court of The Venetian Hotel where I was staying.

While I was perusing the menu I took a quick shot of someone’s order of pork chop buns. To be honest it didn’t look appetizing to me but I was curious to find out why people queue to eat this Macanese delicacy.

Instead of the regular bun I went for the pineapple bun which was soft and had a sweet, crunchy topping.

As I expected it was nothing great. The pork chop was well flavored and seasoned. I could taste 5 spice and lemongrass among the spices used. It was tender but quite boring. There wasn’t any sauce or condiment in the sandwich.  I suspect this sandwich was created as a convenient way of eating their favorite pork chop on the go.

Honestly I don’t see myself eating this again.
