When Anthony Bourdain visited Macau on his show No Reservations Season 7 Episode 10 (originally aired July 18, 2011), he and his crew picked many restaurants. Here are all the addresses and the dishes showcased on Anthony Bourdain – Macau, all in a convenient list.
DISH – Cantonese Cuisine
WHAT IS IT?
Cantonese cuisine is from the province of Guangdong in China, which (kinda, sorta) includes Macau. Har gow are steamed fresh water shrimp dumplings. Other Cantonese dishes include roasted chicken (can be dressed in pomelo and honey-lime sauce), Cantonese-style roasted pork belly, fish ball soup, and Cantonese-style steamed crab claw (crab law steamed with ginger, white wine and egg white). Trying out Cantonese cuisine would be an interesting addition to your backpacking Macau itinerary.
The 8 is one of the several restaurants in Hotel Lisboa. It serves Cantonese-style dishes that Anthony Bourdain referred to as “high-end” dumplings. Their har gow, for example, is shaped like a goldfish, which is a symbol of good luck in Chinese culture (the same with the number 8).
DISH – Camarão com Quiabo
WHAT IS IT?
Camarão com quiabo is a Macanese dish of fresh prawns and okra in curry sauce. Macanese cuisine blends Chinese and Portuguese culinary traditions, where spices and techniques are Portuguese and the ingredients are from Asia.
Apomac primarily serves Macanese dishes unique to Macau.
DISH – Portuguese Cuisine
WHAT IS IT?
Macau was a Portuguese territory during the colonial days of Portugal. As such, Portuguese cuisine seeped through Macau and is still evident up to now. There remains several restaurants that serve Portuguese food in Macau, with dishes like grilled chorizo, Portuguese clams (fresh clams steamed with garlic, cilantro, white wine and malagueta pepper), grilled fresh sardines, and roasted suckling pig marinated in wine and spices.
