Le Chinois, Sofitel, Macau

Available in Bahasa: Click Here

Traveling to Hong Kong, it would be a nice chance to visit the Macau too. Only 1 hour sea journey by boat is large and quite comfortable. Macau is one of China's city with attractive tourist destinations.


With a charm of the old Portuguese-style architecture is also famous for its casino entertainment scattered throughout the downtown area. Regarding food, still similar to Hong Kong that is noodles and dim sum are the poplar dishes here. Since this time I reached Macau past a lunchtime, so it was starved.


Once there, I visited one of the dim sum restaurant with a quite unique Portuguese name. Le Chinois, although Portuguese, but the concept built is Chinese with dominant colors of black and red and oriental ornaments are so attached to the interior. Not to forget, the interesting sea views with city scene can be enjoyed while having lunch.


Le Chinois itself means Chinese spoken in French. As the name implies, then the menu offered is still about Chinese cuisine. This time, I tried some dim sum and coincidentally with an interesting promo so the price is practically affordable.


Starting from Prawn Dumpling, one bamboo basket with 3 pieces ha kau. Soft skin texture with shrimp meat that are big enough and tasty. It is highly recommended for consumption when it is warm to keep the texture unchanged.


There was also a favorite menu that is Xiao Long Bao, quite familiar to us, dim sum with the presentation on bamboo baskets in accordance with its name filled with minced pork. Very tasty broth sauce in it combined with pork with a solid texture and a soft thin layer of skin.


And the last dim sum menu was a Beef Ball, meat ball served wet with a little sauce with a slightly mushy texture I think. It tastes a bit under seasoning, therefore served together with a small plate of soy sauce for flavor enhancers.


With service that can be classified as friendly compared to some restaurants in Hong Kong, the exclusive atmosphere, beautiful sea views, dim sum were quite satisfactory, and we could enjoy this delicious experience at an affordable price. Really satisfying.
