Macau Day 4: Miramar Portugese Restaurant, Lord Stow Bakery, and Taipa Village
After jumping off Macau Tower (The rest had to wait for me, so sorry guys!),
we went to Miramar Restaurant for lunch! Miramar is a casual restaurant located at Zona Norte, Hac Sa Beach. I remember the bus had to go up the hill to reach this restaurant. But if you are staying at Westin Hotel, it is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel!
I'm not sure if it's only me, but I had really awesome bread in Macau. Every restaurant had delicious fresh, baked breads!
And so, the top dishes in Miramar for that day!
Crispy on the outside, fluffy in the inside. I can make an ad for this potato croquette already haha.
Seafood Rice / Arroz de Marisco
The portion is really huge, and there's crab, prawns, and mussels to complete the rice. I would called it porridge though because of the thicken consistency. The taste were alright.
Clams "Bulhao Pato" Style
This portugese dish is actually named after a poet called Bulhao Pato, and the clams are cooked with white wine. It makes a great starter as it opens up your appetite.
Roasted Suckling Pig with Potato Chips and Salad
I don't really eat pork so I didn't try this. But everyone else loved it. So if you are into pork, do order this if you are in Miramar!
After lunch, it was then time for the legendary egg tarts! The legendary Lord Stow Bakery egg tarts!
The original Lord Stow Bakery is located at Coloane Town Square and it opens from 7am till 10pm.
The small bakery was packed to the brim with people, symbolizing how successful it is.
MOP8 (RM3.20) for heaven in your mouth.
THIS IS INDEED LEGENDARY EGG TART!!!
I bought back 1 dozen of eggtarts to Malaysia for MOP90 (RM35.50). But if you are in Taipa, they have just recently opened a branch in Grand Canal Shoppe!
We then headed to Rua Do Cunha street where Taipa Village is located. Two very well designed buildings will be your best landmark.
Rua Do Cunha is a street where it houses many food stalls, and the famous Koi Kee bakery which you can see everywhere in Macau. It's like how you can see 7-11 all around Thailand.
So what can you do at Rua Do Cunha?
Send a really cool wooden postcards from Cunha Bazaar. This place is also home to many great designer items that feature pandas as its main mascot.
Seng Cheong Crab Porridge
The place to go if you are in Macau. I tried a little, yes the porridge is sweet and fresh, but probably that's about it? I don't recommend it as dinner.
Gelatina Mok Yi Kei
Various traditional gelato and drinks can be bought here, and we tried the durian gelato. It was only normal (maybe because we are Malaysians) so remember to try other flavors okay?
And if you have time..
Do walk around to take really nice pictures with awesome backdrops everywhere!
It was then time to say Byebye to Macau. :( Boarded the 6.30pm flight with Airasia back to Kuala Lumpur.
Had dinner inside the plane and Pak Nasser's nasi lemak never felt better after 4 days of overseas delicacies. :D
Thank you Air Asia and MYMacau for this fun filled 4 days in Macau. Macau is indeed more than the casinos and luxury hotels! :D
