A Lorcha – Macau

November 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

Took a day trip to Macau to see what the hype was all about. Like Vegas but the focus seems to be much more about gambling rather than the shows, restaurants, etc. Why else would you have 24-hour high-speed ferry service to Macau from Hong Kong?

That being said, there are interesting foods to try in Macau. Many shops selling the portuguese egg tarts, beef jerky and various other snacks. My rule of thumb is to go to the busiest shop – that is usually the best one. This may be an informative post on local food on chowhound.

A Lorcha, named after a type of Portuguese boat, is a small restaurant with low arched ceilings located near the A-ma Temple. It is a good place to try Portuguese food in what was once a portuguese colony. Some local dishes include feijoada, chargrilled king prawns, and clams in garlic and olive oil. Portuguese wines available by the glass or bottle.
