This was supposed to be fantastic portuguese style food as recommended by a ex-local/macanese. It was just notch above average. Maybe I should have known better because it was located right where all the touristy stuff was (Dai Sam Ba/Da San Ba)
We had the portuguese cod and sausage fried rice, portuguese style chicken curry, beef tongue, and lamp chops. Of those 4 dishes, the lamp chops were actually the shining dish. They were pretty juicy and tender and not the least bit gamey to me, which is usually the case with lamb.
Conclusion: Worth a try but don’t expect amazing. Just try the lamp chops here.
p.s. Next time, can someone recommend me a delicious place for pork chop buns? I had a really disappointing experience with a local cafe….. (Sik Sun/Shi Shen)
