Macau food is a unique blend of Portuguese, Chinese and Asian influences, reflecting the history and culture of the region. Some of the most popular Macau dishes are:
Pastel de nata: These are Portuguese egg tarts with a flaky crust and a creamy custard filling, topped with a caramelized layer. They are best enjoyed fresh and warm from the oven.
Pork chop buns: These are simple but satisfying snacks consisting of a crispy fried pork chop sandwiched between two toasted buns. They are juicy, tender and flavorful.
Almond cookies: These are crumbly cookies made with ground almonds, sugar and lard. They have a nutty and buttery taste and melt in your mouth. They are often sold in souvenir shops and bakeries.
Shrimp roe noodles: These are thin egg noodles tossed with shrimp roe, soy sauce, lard and scallions. They have a springy texture and a savory flavor, enhanced by the pops of shrimp roe.

Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. A Portuguese territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of cultural influences.
While it’s famous for casino revenues crushing those of Las Vegas, Macau’s history as a former port during the spice trade resulted in an awesome cuisine entirely its own.
Macanese cuisine is suspected to have evolved as different styles of cooking became infused into traditional Portuguese cooking using local ingredients and spices from Africa, India and the coast of Malacca. And then, Chinese cooking techniques became integrated into these dishes as well.
