2018 Macao Year of Gastronomy Food Hunt

 

To say that Macau is all about Casinos and hotels would be a vast understatement. Long before the blinking lights and polished floors that draws millions of visitors that is generating folds of revenue so much more than Las Vegas each year, Macao was no more than just a trading port rented to the Portugal. Today, we see Macao in being massive with reclaimed land and renown for the glam and shiny high rises, baccarat, and other signs of modern life. The Historic Centre of Macau, which is entirely in the Macau Peninsula, became a World Heritage Site in 2005 and is magnificent heritages unveiling their wonderful stories. Food as cultural heritage is closely tied and recently in the UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, what better way to experience the charm of Macao if not through their food?

The Macao Government celebrated the occasion with a promising series of activities lined up in corresponding to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) mission of using creativity as a driver for sustainable urban development. As the third Creative City of Gastronomy in China, after Chengdu and Shunde, 2018 Macao Year of Gastronomy is absolutely the perfect opportunity for anyone from all over the world to experience the charm and creativity of what Macao can offer. In the recent participation of Food Hunt organised by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO), we experience Macao food with fun, laughter, and bonds of new friendship and friendly coalition.

There might have been an interpretation of what is offered in Macao but the heritage of Chinese and Portuguese from the past and present of modern fusion and influences is always ever exiting as this global pantry continuously offering both local and international innovative of possible creativity in culinary. This Food Hunt have us racing in teams to eat at designated food stops in the shortest time and both trendy and classic gourmet had showcased the diversity of food choices in Macao. What a way to experience Macao!

Here are six within walking distance and the list comprises some fancy creativity alongside classy selections of signature Macao food adored by the locals themselves. Some I was told, have been selling for decades. Take Man Kei Eatery (文记咖啡面食) for start. Like most local diners, whetting the appetite of locals and tourists alike, they humbly offer flavours that hit all the right gastronomic notes. With a succulent cut of chicken chop nestled in a gloriously crispy bun, this shop inspires queues snacking outside and a must try that’ll make you fall in love with Macao. I make new friend with this local patron outside this shop.

Speaking of tiny shop with delicious offering, Feng Cheng Zhen Ji (凤城珍记)showed us how fish can be folded into crispy parcels before deep frying and at the same time tastes uniquely intriguing. Sui Gao is lusciously filled generously with lightly minced pork, leaving satisfying bites of crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

In recognition of the vital role street food plays on Macao’s gastronomic scene, the renown Michelin guide has added a merited category dedicated to their guide. From Shunde steam milk pudding, coconut pudding to Portuguese egg tarts with clever twist of versatility, the most popular snacks deliver a bite-sized gastronomic world tour on the streets of Macao. Taking a walk on the streets filled with Chinese and Portuguese signs and road name was a challenge but interacting with the locals as the gastronomic adventure took place was one of the loveliest experience. Smooth scoops of tofufa dessert and cooling spoonful of coconut pudding were seriously one of the best kind of dessert one can ask for. The coconut pudding was a first time for me to actually realised that I could have so much emotions on pudding.

For those who want to take a walk on the nifty side when it comes to bites sizes of tarts, head for your share of Bacalhau Tart (马介休挞)- a signature Portugal ingredient made of cod inside a tart or Sardine Tart 沙丁挞 (18 MOP) at Sab 8 café. That or the famous Portuguese tart, with bird nest on it at Yī yàn táng tiánpǐn (壹燕糖甜品) for those seeking fancier selection. Myself was not overly convinced with this one but it sure is a tourist favourite.

Restoran Hua Mui @ Johor

Restoran Hua Mui @ Johor , Are they still the best in 2018?

 

Although it may, at first glance, seem a particularly right choice to hop on the bandwagon and just go right ahead with most websites raving and claiming how Restoran Hua Mui is the must visit when in Johor Bahru (JB), I for one disagree after this visit. And the continuous crowd and line became an unexplained occurrence and scene that baffled every single one of us, more so especially after our visit.

 

 

Coffee isn’t really the most amazing though it could be one of the best in consistency within this proximity, toast seemed ordinary with nothing much to rave about, and signature noodle simply wasn’t impressive to warrant a return even with a secured seat reserved ahead. I would beg to differ however, if anyone would totally have claimed that no one should be visiting and patronising the business, and I’m not saying they are lousy in anyway. With integrity accumulated from the years of operation, the business runs with great if not an obsessive attention to detail, passion, and quality of ingredients that perfectly reflects the multi-racial and culture of the local people. Anyone – local or foreign – can come here and taste a bit of the cultures that make up Malaysia. The typical kopitiam fare that most Malaysians and Singaporeans are very familiar with- toast and half boiled eggs, maybe the only thing that’s satisfying if higher grade of butter were to accompany the kaya for the buns or toasts. Upon the fall of that perfectly cooked half boiled eggs as it’s cracked open, you know they score when it comes to freshness. Every egg lover would be enticed the moment it falls like a droplet of wabbly dollop without breaking the yolk.

Older practice and breakfast culture in kopitiam might have been improvised and probably transited to the revamped spaces, but this place speak through its offerings. Despite being over rated, it doesn’t change the fact that they offer comfort and that is more than just the execution of their business profile so anyone seeking comfort flavour of home cooking, try the Hainanese Chicken Chop. Then again, you can totally skip this if you are limited by the amount of calorie input because there’s something fancier around the corner. It is, after all the taste of nostalgia. But, travellers hankering for local food will find satisfying experience here for sure.

Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia x Hungry Bear @ Melaka

 

Some of the finest producers come together at the Pizzart campaign to once again bring patrons and customers an amazing food experience. Featuring dishes from some of the best restaurants, plus four pizza inventions specially created by Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia, the Taste of Anchor Food Professionals presents cheesy festive edition, and a whole new level of global food trends in the local scene.

 

Fonterra’s leading dairy foodservices segment, Anchor Food Professionals celebrate this festive season with lots of cheese melting and pulling, as well as lots of meats and a true satisfaction of pizza indulgence. As well as the participating kitchens, though, hungry punters can also look forward to supermarket and groceries where they can stock up on some of the finest ingredients in town.

If you’d like to taste what these fine ingredients can do to your cooking and baking, look no further. Here’s what I had when I went down south and sampled some pretty gorgeous pizzas at Hungry Bear in Melaka. This exclusive blogger preview shared the same session of the house pizza eating challenge. Some of the participants were really young and boy it was super cute watching juniors eating so seriously. Made me wonder what had them signing up to eating challenge at the first place?

Nevertheless, the contestants probably enjoy the pizza a lot like how I enjoyed it. Director of Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia, Ms Linda Tan was present at the occasion and has spoken about how the brand taps into their New Zealand- based research and going beyond their role as consultants to keep partner restaurants and clients. I don’t deny the taste of these amazing creations. My favourite is the Cheese Pretzza with options of minced chicken and despite naming it pretz, it is made with their pizza dough incorporated with Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream, and shaped into gorgeous pretz and meticulously filled with fillings in every single bite. Be ready to taste Anchor Cream Cheese, Anchor Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese; and cleverly pairing this with their house carbonara sauce as dipping sauce, this one I don’t mind having it again.

Also sampling the Masala Pizza Rolls (RM 29.80), these inventive pizzas are definitely cool in not only the taste, but thoughtfully the size and shapes of it. Fun sized pizza filed and loaded with Anchor Shredded Mozarella Cheese, Anchor Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese along Masala meat and spinach, it was not the only thing that’s impressive. I’ve had the regular pizzas and they are good for pizza lovers. Tomyum flavour in particular really stands out with the spike of sharp tang and spicy.

Crab Factory @ Johor

 

Another exciting crab experience at the Johor food trip not long ago had me questioning how so that I have never once visited their Klang Valley outlet in PJ. Crab Factory brings Johor a unique seafood menu and interactive dining experience at this beautiful enclave much alike mini Paris (or a mini European township). Located not too far from Mount Austin, the second day with the bunch of makan kaki started with huge and fresh seafood as opposed to dainty bite sizes of sashimi from the first day. If you asked me, I think all our cholesterol probably raised by 20% during that 2 days. The amount of seafood (and everything else in between) can easily feed me for a week. Generous sizes and amount aside, it was by far the best seafood I have had in the past 6 months at least, if not the juiciest. How so I haven’t been eating at the PJ outlet? They were so good!

Unsurprisingly, the focus in crab factory is the seafood and the eatery promise nothing but the finest and freshest dishes. With no plating skills required, everything is eaten right from the table. And the sweet crustaceans are absolutely something I will gladly snap on a bib and dive right in at any time. Also feel free to mess the entire table so long as you don’t eat from the wrong pile.

 

Served in a plastic bag and dripping with a house sauce made from garlic butter, and together with vegetables, these meals are presented in packages as such: Crab Lover Shiok (2-3 pax), Crab Lover Party (4-5 pax), and Crab Lover Giler (7-9 pax) priced at RM 49.90 or RM 59.90 per pax. I thought it was a fantastic deal for seafood lover. I would eat this again anytime and work on the calories later.

If fresh crabs, prawns, lobsters, crawfishes, or even mussels with every crevice coated with delicious sauce isn’t a reason to get messy then I don’t know what is. This one is indeed a lovely and ideal place to feast for every occasion and any celebration, so long as it is not a proposal. Don’t believe me? Watch this saved stories from the 2 days 1 night Johor food trip.

October Japanese Restaurant @ Johor

 

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, the symbolic raw fish salad is a must have at any dining table during the festive season. And to make sure you get the greatest satisfaction when it comes to those sashimi, October Japanese restaurant in Johor features fresh seafood ingredients in the form of colourful prosperity platters to usher the wonderful Year of Dog, along with some other auspicious specialties. It was one of the first few early “yee sang tossing” when we were at the restaurant last year but the vibe was totally present upon seeing the beautiful platter of vibrant sashimi.

 

This Prosperity Yee Sang with Assorted Sashimi in Wasabi Sauce (RM108 and RM68 for large and regular respectively) consists of varieties of deep water fish Sashimi – Norwegian Salmon, Maguro (Tuna) and Hamachi (Yellow Tail), with aplenty colours of assorted textures from the greens. For the crunch, be ready to be fall in love with pieces of fried Gyoza skin and almond flakes. Chopsticks at the ready!

 

1.October Japanese Restaurant @ Johor

 

At the same time October Japanese Cuisine has prepared some auspicious specialties crafted by the chef. This Auspicious Flaming Nabe (RM68.80) is a pot miso and Japanese sake soup with generous ingredients packed in within. With Norwegian Salmon and slices of chicken breast, Shitake mushrooms, leeks and carrots, in a pot serving on flame with a pour of “KaoLiang” Rice Wine and sake stirring in to not only bring out more flavours of this dish but to also some flaming action. While the pot simmers and boil, the other thing pleasant to look at is their Fortune Sushi& Sashimi Platter (RM 58). I’m absolutely loving how each dish are given such abundance significance to represent the festive celebration. With six assortment of sushi ball beautifully placed in gorgeous rhythmic stairways along a medley bed of thick slices of fresh sashimi.

Of course, there are plenty more creativity when they torch and flame up the Flaming Salmon Aburi Maki (RM 29.90) made with salmon, rolling in crab stick and drizzled with spicy sauce. Or when they present the October Special Bento (RM 59.90) holding a lovely assortment of meat, fish and vegetable; complete with hearty miso soup to aid digestion and improve immune function. I am a sucker for anything involving fermentation.

Then there was this Grilled Edamame (RM 9.90) with spicy Japanese Togarashi seasoning and then sautéed for extra smokiness. It really got me wondering if these extra preparations are even necessary given how people already fancy a simple quick boil of this green goodness. Skip this if you have limited space and go ahead and order the Kushiyaki Moriawase (RM44.90)- a plate of grilled skewers of assorted classic favourites. Either that or the Tempura Sweet Potato (RM 9.90). Made from mashed sweet potato and yam coated with breadcrumbs before deep frying to crispy outer layer. Pairing this is the tartar sauce by the side for some fancy combination of flavovurs.

 

10.October Japanese Restaurant @ Johor

 

Some might have already seen this on my insta stories when it took me hours to get to Johor but I was glad I joined the food trip with so many other blogger friends. Johor is one of the place I felt compelled to revisit again and again but it was never for their Japanese food. This was my first visit to the restaurant albeit having been to this part of Johor several times and I have no idea about the huge parking space at the back of the restaurant. I’ve been to most of their neighboring resto but never this one where I should have. It was cosy comfy with some nice garden view separated by glass windows- a great place for ootd too. Watch my 2 days of nuisance and a peek of what’s next on the blog.

Hands and Heart @ Bangkok, Thailand

 

Beyond their instagrammble white lay out, this coffee spot delivers for those serious about their brew. An understated coffee bar with minimal seating, it’s probably not the best place to linger but serious coffee drinkers will find this an essential destination for the passion of coffee brewing is hard core at this cafe. While coffee bean from various origins are part and parcel of this impressive coffee bar, there is one particular item on the menu that caught my heart, soul and everything or anything you can probably think off to have me returning again.

Myself could come up with reasons more than you can shake a stick at to revisit for their Kombucha Coffee. Being a huge fan of Kombucha mainly because of that unique and pleasant taste on top of the beneficial factors, the coffee Kombucha here is probably the best I have ever had so far. And to make it worst now that I am back home, I’ve not found any place in Malaysia with coffee Kombucha half as close to this one that I’ve had here in Hands and Heart Bangkok. Oh well…looks like I am visiting Bangkok again real soon.
