Traditional Cantonese Breakfast

Traditional Hong Kong Cantonese breakfast usually consist of congee plus stir fried noodle or steamed rice rolls. As for congee, usually sliced salty lean pork and millennium eggs are added.

Another breakfast duo is plain congee plus deep fried dough sticks.

I have recently had a short trip to Macau and found this at the breakfast buffet table of Hotel Sintra. We were given quite a number of accessories to add to the lean pork congee. So I have tailored my own congee with deep fried dough sticks, green onion, millennium egg and salty egg and some others. Unfortunately no stir fried noodle or steam rice rolls available. However they did provide some Cantonese dim sum instead. Not to mention salads, cereals and many other foods of international taste.

Though Hotel Sintra is ranked as 3-star, I do appreciate their buffet breakfast as it is far better than some other 4-star hotels in Macau.
