Typical Portuguese – Macanese Cuisine @ Venetian Food Court, Macau

Macau and Zhuhai is very very near. Both city are just beside the border, and hence, everyday thousands of people pass by this border to the other side.

We left our hotel early at around 8.30AM, and prepare to spend 1 full day here at Macau. However, the weather destroyed my plan totally. It’s raining heavily and well, I just have to shift my plan here and there, leading to many of my initial plans of eating cannot be met.

One thing good about Macau is, since there are so many mega-casinos here, once you are out of the Gongbei border (拱北口岸) and step into Macau, there are just so many casino bus around willing to give you a free ride to their casinos. Buses available are from Wynn, Venetian, Sands, MGM, City of Dreams and many many more. The bus won’t wait until they have full capacity, instead they leave every few minutes hence the down town is actually very small.

Since it’s raining heavily, we went to Venetian first and have our brunch here.

One of the most famous dishes in Macau is the Portuguese Curry Chicken. I had a very bad experience on a super tasteless and extremely expansive version of this dish the last time here at Venetian, but at another restaurant. However, since LY did not try this before, I decided to order for her to try and see the difference between Malaysia’s curry and Portuguese.

However, this particular stall served good Portuguese Curry Chicken. It’s very fragrant and thick. Besides, they also give a whole 1/2 chicken to us. 7.0/10

The braised oxtail is also quite good, as the meat is very tender. However since the curry is too strong in flavour, making it taste too bland after eating the curry. 6.6/10

I also try their beer to cheer up the day before we starting to explore Macau.

Total it cost us HKD190 for our brunch, which is not entirely cheap, but well, what’s cheap in Venetian? We then walk around to see the skies and hear they sing, then head to City of Dreams to see the bubble bubble which is quite okay, and then head to Wynn to see the pretty lame dragon (in my opinion).

After that, only we head to Senado Square, which is in my next post.

Total Damage: HKD190 for 2 person

Location: Food court in Venetian, Macau
