Lunching in Macau, Day 1

31 03 2014

I had decided early on that I was going to do a Portuguese meal while in Macau though I did not realize then that there was a more varied Macau-Portuguese cuisine.

The restaurant I picked for my first lunch boasted to be Portuguese but it was also famous for its “African chicken” which is a localized Portuguese dish.

I did not get that but I did get myself a very good chicken dish, full of garlic and soy-sauce based gravy with what seemed like star-anise aroma.  The cod croquette was excellent as well.

The white Portuguese wine was unfortunately very bad.  The water I was served was hot.  A friend who lived in Malaysia told me it was the same there; that if you didn’t ask for cold water it would normally be served hot like tea.  I guess it’s a Chinese thing as they traditionally don’t drink anything cold.

My chicken which the menu said would take 30 minutes to be cooked and served.  It was worth the wait.
