I’ve had the chance to try the contemporary Chinese Restaurant – Le Chinois in Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 where innovative dim sum is delicately prepared, and classic Chinese dishes come with a twist. Continue reading
The newly opened Chang Jiang White Coffee Cafe off Jalan Gopeng brings us back to the olden days. Marbled table tops, giant mirrors and old fashioned panel windows reminisce the typical kopitiam, but at the same time, the cafe is demurely fashionable with Tiffany blue chairs and pink window frames.

The annual Food Festival in Macau draws more crowd than ever, celebrating the diversity of food in Macau. It gets even better than that because international restaurateurs are invited to participate in this event, presenting authentic flavors from their home countries. Last year, it was restaurateurs from Thailand and this year, it’s restaurateurs from Kasai of Japan. Continue reading
The Ming Room at Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) serves delectable dim sum dishes that test patrons tenacity and patience especially on weekends, and I see many patrons are accepting the challenge, waiting as-a-matter-of-fact-ly for an empty table. If you would like to eat at The Ming Room during weekends, it is a must that you make a reservation or be prepared to wait. We were told even if we made a reservation, we might still need to wait.

JW Marriott Hotel’s Shanghai Restaurant (苏浙苑) is a restaurant of grandeur, reliving old splendid Shanghai with red and gold motifs in delicate opulence. Alongside Shanghainese cuisine, the restaurant also offers dim sum for lunch.

Cha Po Tion Seafood Restaurant (阿娇海鲜饭店) is located on the main “Seafood Street” in Sekinchan, which we somehow completely missed when we drove along the street because it really just looks like a wooden hut with metal roofs and a fading-away sign board that’s hardly legible. This restaurant would have been unfated had not been our running group’s suggestion. Be there early or be patient because they prepare food table by table. It may take a while to be your turn, but once it’s your turn, food are dished out fast.
At Wheel Noodle that has just newly opened on Jalan Market, eating noodles may not be the same again when noodles are served in bite-sized portions, in old-fashioned bowls with rooster images. In fact, Wheel Noodle is calling its noodles “Dong Dong Noodles”, as in the olden days, noodles are sold on bicycles with vendors making “dong dong” sounds by knocking metal spatula on the wok to attract more customers.
Bagan Seafood Restaurant (鸿运海鲜饭店) seems to be a popular one at Sekinchan along the seafood street where about 10 restaurants compete. At off peak hours of 3 – 4 pm, patrons were still flowing in yet somehow, our experience was just an average one.
