Eating Out: Casa De Tapas Macau
This tapas place has been a real welcome addition to the Macau Taipa Village, adding some spice and variety to non-casino hotel restaurants. Across from this shophouse is anchor tenant Antonio’s- whose former restaurant was just round the corner.
The menu is simple, some dishes better than others and comes at a price tag that includes a lovely ambience and an outdoor terrace overlooking Taipa Village – a charming set that reminds you of being in an old European city, but endearing Asian details like clothes out drying on the rooftop and delicious smells of braised beef noodles from the local diners (cha chaan tengs) below.
It’s slim pickings to find a great spot for a night out at an establishment that isn’t housed in a glitzy casino hotel, so Casa de Tapas definitely fills our desperate needs, even if it means gentrifying our little Taipa Village.
We’ve been coming here since their soft opening for sundowners (happy hour), dinner and post dinner drinks and recommend ordering the prawns and mixed croquettes as well as lamb skewers. There’s also a citrusy calamari salad worth a second order. Service is friendly and prompt, refreshing for a standalone restaurant in Macau.
