They have a shop in Temple Street. I don't need to fly to HK or Macau fie the delicious almond biscuits.

“A one stop snack shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

There are several Koi Kee outlets in Macau's Senado Square itself, so choose one that is convenient for you. I visited the outlet closest to St Paul's Cathedral as it was bigger. There are many different local snacks to choose from, with almond biscuits being the most popular. The staff were helpful and polite. However, expect lots of tourists. The payment queues moved pretty fast and heavy bags were given bubble plastic wraps over the handles for easy carriage.

“Great Macanese speciality snacks, pretty good egg tarts as well.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Koi Kei is a routine stop for us. Their braised meats, almond biscuits and other Macanese snacks are consistently very good and have been for years. We have enjoyed countless purchases from the various branches around the city and always look forward to nibbling on their products.

One of the foods you can try at Koi Kei is the egg tart (pronounced daan ta in Cantonese). The Koi Kei egg tarts is not the best in town, this distinction is shared and firmly in the hands of Lord Stow's Bakery in Coloane and Margaret's near the Historic City Centre. However, after the King and Queen of Portuguese style egg tarts, we find the tarts served at Koi Kei to be as good as anywhere else in Macau.

As such, if you are planning to stop at Koi Kei to make some Macanese snack food purchases, you might want to try their egg tarts as well. They are pretty good.

“Market leader”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

You will be just unable to ignore crowds of chinese visitors with Pastelaria Kou Kei bags (very big and very full) around the city.
Most popular are almond cakes, but i think for trained mediterranean taste they aren't really great. What is great is variety of chopped-pressed-dried meat - you will find that on entrance of every store. Although best examples are on Rua de Felicidade, Kou Kei is just easer to find. I never went home from Macao without at least several pounds of Kou Kei meat

“Extremely touristy and commercial, but standards are high”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Hordes of tourists flock to their outlets, and for good reason. Though not necessarily selling the best egg tarts in town, Koi Kei does have a huge collection of Macau treats that make it easy for one to get all the food shopping out of the way. The cookies (almond and walnut) were divine.
