Macau Weekends: A Petisqueira & more

I’m getting into the swing of discovering Macau and despite my ennui when chef’s hard at work. I’ve made lists of to-dos which keep increasing, and am aiming to get to know Macau inside out. In fact, it’s such a luxury to have a weekend retreat in Macau to go discovering and spend time writing, or at least attempting to collect my thoughts to write.


I can never get enough of the tacky fake Venetian.

Zaia which was cool, but I enjoyed the House of Dancing Water way more.

Some delicious traditional Portuguese/Macanese food, just like home cooked food at A Petisqueira.


I didn’t do the ordering and am not sure what this is called, but it’s essentially rice in a seafood tomato based broth with olives and lots of seafood… like a seafood teochew muay almost.
Apparently the best chocolate mousse in Macau… they use lots of egg yolks, as opposed to whites… and you really taste the difference, each spoonful taste like an instant heart attack, in a sinfully good way.

With the weather looking up, it’s the perfect excuse for a BBQ.
Fobbie found some large tiger prawns and they were great despite being frozen prawns from the supermarket.

    It sounds so wonderful to have weekends in Macau! (I’ve always wanted to go to Macau). I’m glad you’re having a good time there and spending time with the one you love (always the most important!).

    When I was in Portugal I had a seafood stew that’s very similar to what you described: wonderfully rich tomato broth, lots of chunks of fish and squid and shellfish, and rice. It was soo good!

    yup!! you should schedule a HK trip to yumcha and go to macau too. it’s not far from Beijing anyhow!

    The stew was great, super homestyled and the other rice dish was with pork, so tasty so homey.
