Low tables, cold Coke & Fong Wong Pasteleria

Categories abroad, Food, Places
At a small alley near a crowded street, this shed with low tables was a welcome treat from walking with its ice cold coke

I was invited by the Macau Government Tourism Office-Philippines (MGTO) together with other travel writers and bloggers for a familiarization tour to this interesting place last May and it was a beautiful experience with its cuisine, glitz and old world charm.

Ice cold green tinged coca cola bottles stood at a low round table with equally low stools fit for schoolchildren. Well, except that we were bloggers, relieved finally cooling our throats and feet after a long walk around Macau.

It was just hot and humid and this cafeteria, at a maze of back alleys near the Mercado Municipal Almirante Lacerda is almost comparable to the pungko-pungko stalls along Llorente St. in Cebu except that they don’t have the usual puso, ginabot, ngo hiong and meatballs.

But I liked it there. The ruggedness, the rundown atmosphere that are patronized by the locals. When I first saw this, I didn’t quite believe it but there it was, a reality check in this gambling eden.

Jars of cheap cookies and other stuff at Fong Wong Pasteleria

A few steps from these is the Fong Wong Pasteleria, small and hugging a wall with a narrow pathway infront of it. But don’t just pass it off as another hole in the wall bakery that offers delightful cookies at a cheaper price (MOP$1/piece) than what is sold in the supermarkets or in other sections of the territory with high tourist traffic. This is Macau by the way and there are always interesting things to taste. Yes, even in this simple pasteleria.

I help businesses get qualified leads and more sales via FB Ads and Messenger Chatbots. I'm also a photographer, blogger and writer based in Cebu, the Philippines.

A true blue Cebuano, I make stunning images and meaningful stories. My work has been published in various coffee table books as well as local and international publications including National Geographic Magazine, Geo (Germany), Sunday Times Magazine (London) and has frequently done photo assignments for Mabuhay, an inflight magazine.

My personal Photography work has been exhibited around Asia and Europe including Paris in France, Germany, The Netherlands, South Korea, China and around the ASEAN regional capitals.

I am a peripatetic traveler and have been to all 81 Philippine provinces and abroad.
