There’s so much good food in Macau that I had to write almost every meal I ate… Sigh… But it’s good to share with friends who are clueless about where to eat lah. Was my last night in Macau, so took the chance to walk around the hotel area and at the same, look for real Portuguese food to fulfill one of my agendas in my food list. I remembered my friend brought me to one which is really small but very home-feel. Food was good but it wasn’t that affordable.
So I ventured around on my own, came across a few Portuguese restaurants, but didn’t enter. Almost succumbed to 鼎泰丰 when I was approaching Rio Hotel, but I decided to ask the girls at the money exchange opposite Rio Hotel instead. They told me there’s one pretty good one just behind where they are. So I walked to the back, which was under a lot of renovation, and very surprise to find that amidst all that major renovation, the restaurants are still operational. Found the restaurant, went in and was warmly welcomed by the lady manageress.
Taste: Portuguese food in Macau has a little Asian flare in them. The ox tail is a little salty though… but is ok when go with rice or bread. Will check out the other items next time I’m there.
Portion: Above average.
Price: HKD$209 for all.
Location: See last pic. Get to opposite Rio Hotel and you will see it.
Ok some of you might be wondering why I’m writing about such a famous and grand place in my affordable foodblog. Well for the same reason, affordability lor. Reason is I do not want any of my readers here miss out a very nice hi-tea set they are serving at a very affordable price for 2. So if you’re walking around checking out the nice decorate City Of Dreams, you may wann take a break at this very nice and chill out Patisserie at MGM Grand.
Taste: Awesome… MGM Grand leh.
Portion: Above average.
Price: If I can remember clearly it’s HKD$169 per set and comes with 2 coffees. In fact you can share this with more people. But with me around, maximum 2! ;P
Location: MGM Grand. Walk into the lobby from the car porch, turn left and walk through all the exhibits of the lovely artistic Chihuly vases, you’ll see it on your right.
Was in Macau last Dec for a visit and my HK friend highly recommended this place for roast meats. Which sets me thinking… Roast meats… HKger recommend… It must be blardy good right that even a HKger rave about that place?!?! So soon after we checked into our hotel, we headed to the place which is just opposite Macau Square Mall and just opposite the famous Margaret’s Cafe for Portuguese Egg Tarts which I will be writing later after this entry. So we took a cab and all you have to do is tell the cab driver “陈光记” (Pronounced as Chan Kwong Gay), everyone knows where it is because this place is super famous with the locals with loads of history behind it and at the same time, Macau is such a small country.
Rating: 4.5/5. Would be a 5 if not for the price. It’s quite pricey actually but if it’s good, then it’s worth a try!
Taste: Very nice and you gotta try it to know.
Portion: Below average. (That’s why I said pricey)
Price: Meal with drinks came up to about HKD$100.
RTE: Yes, on my next trip!
Location: Opposite Macau Square, on Rua Do Dr. Pedro Jose Lobo Road.
