My friend Food Travel Live and cook extraordinaire says this is daily common food and they mill their own flour (wheat, chickpeas etc) at home to make this dish on a daily basis to accompany meals. She did it so quickly over the pan, I was busy taking notes and marvelling at her dexterity. This […]

I like Korean food, but my husband has less appreciation for it, especially Kimchi that is an acquired taste. He say the smell radiates out of my pores after consuming the pickled vegetables. There are Korean communities all over the world and they bring with them all these delicious sauces and foods. Macau has a […]

sw steakhouse wynn palace

Another option for great value, great quality cuts and a very reasonable wine list too. We went for dinner on their first night and I was back for a tasting of their seafood, and can’t wait to return to try the other sides of Mac n Cheese and the corn mash that I have heard […]

Rabbit Inflatable with Fireworks

This year, One Central has gorgeous lanterns designed by different artists to celebrate Lantern Festival. You won’t miss the cute colourful centre piece,  an 11 metre tall inflatable rabbit right on the water. You might remember Artist Carlos design at the Macao Pavillion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010. The piece is inspired by his childhood memories of […]

roger thomas wing lei palace

I am biased as I have to say that the decor at Wing Lei Palace is my favourite in Wynn Palace as it’s theme is green and gold, my favourite colour green so tastefully done, and peppered with tassels and art deco motifs. I was told however, there wasn’t any art deco inspiration behind the […]

Japas is a beautifully fitted restaurant with classy rustic interiors helmed by Macau chef Anthony Sousa Tam whose culinary experience spans from the kitchens of Noma to Michel Bras’ Laguiole. His long CV also includes being part of the team of chefs that executed Kate Moss’ wedding and a special culinary course on molecular gastronomy […]

sardines portugal

This shop opened a couple of months ago discreetly in the old part of town with walls stacked from floor to ceiling of beautiful sardine cans. I don’t know about others, but I have a bad habit of buying stuff for their beautiful packaging and have a number of sardines boxes and cans after consuming the […]

The latest spot in town for some specialty coffee, savory crepes, club sandwiches and a dessert menu. Bright airy with plenty of natural light streaming in from the skylit glass ceiling. Service is still spotty, every new opening’s teething problems, but the food is simple, fresh and good. A café type spot that has been […]

porco creto (5 of 5) copy

Checked out this cute little restaurant just across from the A-Ma temple at Barra the other day with FC who always knows the coolest, newest spots! Featuring them in an upcoming piece for Travel + Leisure South East Asia’s edition on Macau. Previously, this spot was a cha chaan teng and got a little makeover […]

PJ Eight (3 of 13) copy

I was invited to dinner at The Eight for a menu paired with Perrier Jouet champagnes Belle époque rosé 2006 and the premiere vintage 2007 – both my favourites of the night. Food and wines are very personal and I am not for sweet wines and champagne so these were perfect, citrus notes, slight bitterness, […]
