Sample the cuisine of Macau (website only)


| May 15, 2020

In 2017 Macau became a new member city of Unesco Creative Cities Network in the field of Gastronomy.  Macau's multicultural mix is reflected in its exotic dishes and wealth of options, including 18 Michelin-starred restaurants. Along with Portuguese, Chinese and all kinds of international cuisines is the local Macanese food, which combines influences from both China and Portugal as well as South America, Africa and India. Popular dishes include Galinha à Portuguesa (chicken baked with potatoes, onions, egg and saffron and spiced with turmeric), Linguado Macau (fried sole served with green salad), and the celebrated pastel de nata (Portuguese egg custard tarts), available all over Macau but most famously from Lord Stow's Bakery
