Nanpingyaxu is an tea restaurant that opens in 1968. It is the oldest tea restaurant and it is the first restaurant that has air conditioners in Macau. It is located in Rua Cinco de Outubro, which was once a prosperous street in Macau. Now it is not as prosperous as it used to be, instead, it remains a strong flavor of local life.
When I first went there, what attracted me a lot was the decoration. Wooden tables and chairs, floral tiles, ceiling fans, it was old-style and Macaunism.
Waiters and waitresses were old people, they were experienced. When we ordered the food, they didn't write it down, they just listened and repeated it to the cook. When we paid for the meal, they didn't use the calculator, just made a quick calculation and told us the price.
As for the food, Nanpingyaxu is famous for its sandwich. I prefer cheese& ham& egg sandwich, egg is thick and tender, toast is not baked, it is very delicious.
The restaurant is located in an alley, so it is a little difficult for people to find it and for cars to get in. So visitors are supposed to walk to the restaurant with friends or family. The price is affordable.
