“Absolutely fantastic milk pudding”
Review of Leitaria I Son

Leitaria I Son
Ranked #9 of 35 Dessert in Macau
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 15, 2013

It was really easy to find it because it is on the main thoroughfare and the main road leading to Senado Square. It is along the same side and road as the Grand Lisboa and the Lisboa hotels.

The milk pudding was absolutely the best I've ever had. Try the ones with red bean paste on top and it will absolutely blow your mind away. It is a tad expensive but well worth it. It is very smooth and not too sweet. The pork buns were okay.

The staff speak enough English for tourists, so it is absolutely tourist-friendly.

Wonderful Macau Snacks and very conveniently located between the Senado Square and Grand Lisboa Hotel. Can be a lineup but very old-school mom and pop shop...worth your time to visit...

After reading the reviews, we were intent to have milk pudding while in Macau. The reviews mentioned that this store was right in Sendado Square, but it's actually on the street right before entering Senado Square. The sign on the outside of the store is in Chinese and does not say Leitara I Son in English, which makes it a bit hard to find. Just remember the store has a green sign with a cow in front. We ordered only one milk pudding, as we noticed others around us doing the same. We just wanted the experience. The pudding was pretty good, and worth a try while in Macau. There's no English menu unfortunately. However, they have milk pudding in the front window so you could easily point to it.

We stopped by the Leitaria I Son dessert shop recently for a quick treat. This is more or less the same as the Lee Shun Milk Company shops in Hong Kong, serving up quick pudding and milk-based snacks as well as a few basic breakfast options.

We tried the milk pudding (MOP23) finding it just as good as what we are have in the Lee Shun Milk Company branches in HK. Serving size and temperature was just right and the taste - perfect, being slight sweet, creamy and very tasty (rating 4 of 5). We also tried the Macau style pork bun (MOP20) that was just ok. The pork was a bit puny in size but tasted nice, the bread bun was crispy, crunchy and just very good, helping to make up for the small pork serving (rating 3 of 5). They have an English menu, you just need to ask.

Leitaria I Son is quite small and crowded with few places to sit so best to make a quick stop and get on with your sightseeing efforts. It is at a very good location on Avenida Almeida Ribeiro, right past the General Post Office when walking away from Senado Square. Perfect option for those arriving early for a day of visiting the area World Heritage attractions. Generally speaking, this is a fun local place to try for those interested in something light (and sweet) to eat. We'll stop by again for sure.

The steam milk is so smooth and tender, you just simply feel like having one more bowl. This is a must-have in macau. They have other different dessert like milkshake and steam egg yolk with ginger.
