I got really excited when I saw this humble canteen at the Daxingshan Temple, next to the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and near the Westin. (I lived in Macau for a year and ate at least one meal a day at one of two Buddhist vegetarian restaurants in...

I was so excited to ride the monorail around the Goose Pagoda park, but the day I went, the power was out in the area. My heart was broken. It looks like a fun ride, all around the park and new shopping center and the pagoda itself. I bet the...

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this is a really good Korean restaurant. Inside, the friendly staff have nice picture menus with a huge selection of Korean favorites. The kimchi is fresh, and we figured we couldn't go wrong with...
