I’m in the midst of a three week trip to Asia and so far it’s been pretty epic. I have to say that, so far, my favorite experience has definitely been visiting the region of Macau. Located on the south coast of China, Macau was a Portuguese territory until 1999 and because of that there are some pretty rad things going on here culturally. I had no plan when I took the ferry over from Hong Kong except to eat good food, but I found so much more than that. Here’s my day in photos.
It takes a lot to leave me speechless (if you’ve ever met me, you know it’s true). Macau did it.
The contrast of Asian and Portuguese architecture was surreal.
I found an amazing Portuguese restaurant – Dragon Portuguese Cuisine – and I totally fell in love with it. This is the feast I had for lunch (there is no shame in ordering and consuming enough food and wine for three people, don’t judge me). Here’s the lineup of the food:
“Bacalahau” Rolls (Bacalhau is a salted fish and these were like very light and airy fish fritters, so good y’all – SO good.)
Portuguese Style Baked Crab Meat with Mozzarella. Um – Crab? Cheese? YES!
Mussels Baked with Portuguese White Wine.
Fried Rice Portuguese Style
Also known as “the Gate to Nowhere”, the Ruins of the Church of St. Paul was a Jesuit church built in the 17th century. This is all that remains today, but it was truly awe inspiring.
One more look at streets of this unique little city. It really stole my heart. Big, big thanks to my pal Rocky who recommended it to me. GO HERE!
