Maybe once a time will come, when our grandchildren will find "Tristan da Guanye Islands" or even "Chisa ta Guanye qundao" along with "Sanba city, Minnesota" on maps. But at least today it seems too progressive. There is Rua da Cunha on Taipa island, Macau. Or three hieroglyphs, carefully choosed to represent original name, written as "guan ye kay" in jutping transcription system, and sounding "kwuan yah kay". Anyway, very good place, and easy to find if you will be not mislead by Tripadvisor's neglect to naming conventions.

A street with ally for you to discover some small restaurants that you may not notice easily. if you have time to search around, you may find some surprise.

This is Rua do Cunha, an always crowded place, with lots of restaurants. It is in old Taipa village and you can do a nice stroll through the streets around this one. There is a covered square that usually has some performances on Sundays at 13h. In the other end of Rua do Cunha there is a flea market on Sundays.
This is where you find the restaurant “O Santos” a very nice Portuguese restaurant that is usually crowded but where the food is good. There is also a nice shop nicely decorated and you can go there for souvenirs or just to have a look, the Cunha Bazaar.
There are some traditional Chinese pastry shops like Koi Kei where you can see a man making the famous almond cookies and maybe taste it as some of the shops will offer small pieces for trial.
Try to enjoy it as it is always crowded with tourists.

We always enjoy spending a bit of time in the Taipa old village area when we can and its always worth a walk up Rua Do Cunha to see the food, drink and souvenir shops that line this small street.

Over the past year and half or so, additional shops have opened up on Rua Do Cunha to take advantage of the growing tourism here. These include Starbucks along with another newer coffee shop called Kafe Laku, which is a Chinese coffee shop featuring Indonesia civet coffee.

There is also a innovative art inspired local products bazaar called Cunha Bazaar that features three floors of local-made products. This is a very good stop at the end of Rua do Cunha. Even if you don't buy, the inside and outside of the shop is painted extremely well, showing off the artistic nature that can be found in Macau that is unexpected in this part of the world.

Classics like the O'Santos Portuguese restaurant and Koi Kei Bakery contine to trade busily to the streams of customers that come to Rua do Cunha, as well.

Overall, we like making trips here and to the surrounding area, its a nice change of scenery compared to what is on offer in the Senado Square area of the historic city center on the Macau Peninsula.

we went there at the night time yet we found most of the shops are closed around 9 plus. its a bit too early for them to close the shop as we found not much things to shop or dining.
