    Solmar: Macanese Dish, famous African chicken

    by MINOSUKE Updated Dec 2, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Macao was once a crossing point of trade between the East and the West. So also in food, we find mixture of various cultures.
    Macanese cuisine is very unique.
    The famous African Chicken is spicy grilled chicken with coconut flavor.
    Crab stewed in Curry Sauce is one of the typical Macanese dish.
    You can also enjoy grilled sardine (Sardine Salad) here.

    The atmosphere of this restaurant is a little stately, but you can be relaxed.

    Favorite Dish: African Chicken, Crab stewed in Curry Sauce, Lobster stewed in Tamato Sauce

    RDS Fried Chicken

    by vincentf Written Aug 29, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An off-the-beaten path local fried chicken shop that even sells herbal tea to sooth your mouth and throat due to all the fried foods.

    Favorite Dish: Try the half/full chicken set meal which includes drinks and potato wedges. It does get a little oily though.

    Home-made noodles

    by ntm2322 Written Apr 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: For me this place is a must, I really like it coming here to eat noodles (try the gai si lou min).

    This place features Myramar cuisine, it is very popular among locals and is always full. You can see from outside articles of newspapers and magazines sticking to the glass. These are reviews from people (some of them well-known people) who have been here.

    Well, all their noodles are homemade and the taste is awesome.

    Good sushi!

    by ntm2322 Written Apr 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: When I have a craving for sushi I always come to this place.

    Although it is a small space (the only table it is a narrow counter that accommodates 3-4 persons), however, it is clean and the sushi is well refrigerated, no worries.

    What I usually do is, I go there, take a small take-away plate, choose 12 pieces (it costs 20 patacas) and then I eat them at the office.

    Delicious!

    Solmar Restaurant: Solmar: Not all it's cracked up to be....

    by rachel_simhon Updated Oct 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While Solmar is called an institution for fresh seafood in Macau, I went there with my family and we all found the food to be quite tasteless and unappetizing. My father's grilled fish had actually been battered and deep-fried, was soaked in grease, and my sister's steak had a rubbery consistency and a very strange red color, while the soups that we ordered prior to dinner were definitely of the instant-sachet variety. For what we paid it was quite a disappointing meal, in rather dull ambiance.

    Don't miss the fresh seafood!!!

    by JoseMonteiro Written Jul 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is located in Macau's innerport. There's where fishermen deliver there fish and seafood everyday. This way you can see how fresh the goods are. Don't be impressed with the insects and other fauna, they're part of the scenery.

    Favorite Dish: So hard to choose! From fried shrimps, crab curry, a delicious fish to sweet and sour pork, the problem is the choice. And do drink Tsingtao beer.

    Loja de Sopas e Fitas (Noodles Shop) Kam Seng: Yummy noodles!

    by ntm2322 Written Apr 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: This place is also one of my favorites for eating noodles. It opens very early in the morning and it is always full of people. I usually get the noodles and eat them at office as my breakfast.

    Warning: the place is small, if it doesn’t bother you, you might have to share a table with somebody else.

    Restaurante Platão: Portuguese Cuisine in Macau - Part II

    by ahoerner Updated Jul 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice restaurant located in a small alley near the Senate Square. Portuguese cuisine in a clean decorated ambience. A fancy meal for two plus wine and desert will cost you around MOP 400 (around US$30).

    Accepts credit cards.

    Recommended indeed.

    by ahoerner Written Jul 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Portuguese cuisine (cod fish among others) and a Mateus white wine.
    Fine ambiance but service could be better.
    Restaurant is on the first floor of an elegant colonial building very near Leal Senado Square.

    Favorite Dish: Cod fish...

    Small Restaurant just off Largo Senado

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 19, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For lunch in Macau, we ate at a small Restaurant just off Largo Senado opposite the Leal Senado building. It was a local restaurant in a three-story building specializing in fried noodles. We had these noodles along with light, crispy deep fried chunks of beef and pieces of shrimp. Though it was very unusual compared to what we were used to, it was very tasty.

    No matter where you go in Macau, you should find their unique blend of Portuguese, Indian, Chinese, and Malay cooking very tasty and a welcome break from the often bland food of Hong Kong.

    Restaurante Espaco Lisboa: Leave space in your stomach for desserts!

    by MINOSUKE Updated Sep 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Espaco Lisboa is in Coloane Island. A taxi will take you from Senado to the island in about 20 minutes. This restaurant is located in a very rustic, quiet area. You can walk to Saint Francis Zavier Chapel in a few minutes.
    Here they serve standard Portuguese dish such as grilled sardine, codfish croquette, roasted chicken. They also serve uncured ham.
    What makes us so pleasant is the waiters and the waitresses working there. They are very friendly and nice. ( They said they came from the Philippines.)

    Favorite Dish: Grilled Sardine The sardines are very big and very well grilled.
    Seafood Rice The Seafood Rice they serve here is cooked with crab soup, which makes the dish very thick and special. You can of course enjoy the crab meat.
    Desserts All the desserts are very delicious. So you must be careful not to be full before desserts.

    On your way to the ruins of St. Paul, you'll pass by shops that sell local products. One of which you have to try is the egg roll. They come in assorted flavours. It's yummy and will make a good gift for your friends and family at home. All the egg rolls are freshed made, one by one.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A real off-the-beaten track Macanese restaurant that gets filled up fast during dinner hours.

    Favorite Dish: Try the stuffed chicken with flavoured rice, a serving of oxtail soup, African chicken (quite spicy), Portuguese style stir-fried clams, balcahau in mashed potatoes.

    Enjoy Cantonese Congee!

    by xuessium Written Apr 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Congee is standard Cantonese fare. Rice has been grinded down to a coarse powder (almost like sand) and then cooked in water and stock, along with any ingredients you desire. Wonderful item to have on a cold day or when your appetite is waning. Good as breakfast, snack, tea or a meal by itself.

    Almost every cafe, deli, road side stall and even restaurants will serve them. Just ask for "zok". The most famous congee to try will be pork with century egg, pork innards and seafood mixture.
