A Lorcha – Macau, China

We went on a day trip to Macau at the end of last year – My aunt, my uncle, my mum, brother and his girlfriend – and we ended up for dinner at A Lorcha, which is a famous Portuguese restaurant. It is a very casual atmosphere. The arch doorways and the dark wooden beams creating the old fashioned, hidden-European-restaurant, cave-like feel to it.

Portuguese food is very much grilled meat or fish with potatoes and rice or stews. It is very home cooking type food. We ordered an array of different dishes to share in the middle of the table (Chinese style) so we would try a bit of everything.

There was some steaks and chips, some vegetables, some seafood dishes and some famous Portuguese salt cod croquettes. There was no “wow” factor but it was a tasty banquette of home-cooking-type flavours and great fuel after a day of walking around the casinos and exploring the old town.
