liege waffles macao

This was one of our best kept secret when Liege finally got the waffles dough formula right. When we first tried them at the Broadway Macao food street earlier last year, it was often times inconsistent. We’ve had them both cold and freshly made. Some days great and others not so good. I think it […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

red market halal butcher (6 of 7)

  I wondered for sometime where people who don’t eat pork shop for groceries given that Macau and it’s Portuguese culinary heritage is very heavy on pork. In fact, it is the backbone of Chinese cuisine from stocks to braises and confectionery, then there is the variety of Portuguese chorizos. On my weekly trips to […]

the eight macau (10 of 14)

We took our visiting guest chef friend ** Michelin Thierry Drapeau for Sunday yumcha here as he was curious what a *** Michelin Chinese restaurant in Asia was like. So, with four Michelin stars on the table, there was running commentary on every dish and its execution. Service was disappointing. We waited 20mins for our […]

Where to get the best Indian food in Macau? Look no further – Golden Peacock in Venetian is a one Michelin starred restaurant with all the regional Indian dishes cooked to perfection. Service is fantastic, I’ve gone with friends with egg, gluten, diary allergies and our server actually knew every single ingredient that went into […]
