Macanese Cuisine



Macanese Cuisine in Macau

It is quite a feat to create a delicious meal that combines elements of Portuguese, Chinese, Indian, and Malay cuisine, with some African spices thrown in for good measure. Yet these elements are fundamental to Macanese cooking, a unique style of fusion cuisine showing the influence of many nations. Macau’s status as the major regional trading hub for several years, combined with Portuguese control for 300 years, meant it gained exposure to the foreign ideas and goods passing through its ports. The result of this exposure can be seen in traditional Macanese restaurants. Try African and Goan’s chicken, a Portuguese/African fusion dish, and then wash it down with vino verde, an excellent green wine from Portugal. When you can’t possibly eat anymore, stop into one of the ubiquitous Italian coffee shops for a quick pick-me-up. If you’re looking to try combinations of food you won’t find anywhere else in the world, Macau is the place to go.

Reviews of Macanese Cuisine

A surprising and intriguing experience. Try the pork chop bun, Galinha à Portuguesa, and ginger milk.
