With more than 50 — yes 50 — world-class dining and drinking options at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Galaxy Macau, you’ll never be able to experience them all. So since you have to be a bit selective, these are the best things to eat and drink:
1. Seafood buffet at Festiva. Not all hotel breakfast buffets are created equal, and the one at Galaxy Macau’s Festiva ranks with the best out there thanks to its wide variety of food stations ranging from basic eggs to local and regional specialties. The most popular station by far though is the seafood station, which draws long lines throughout breakfast service for mussels, oysters, prawns and sashimi.
2. Wine at Terrazza. Although the authentic Tuscan cuisine served here deserves its own mention, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Wine Market, which offers wine by the bottle as well as tasting machines that allows diners to sample a complimentary taste of a wine before you committing to an entire glass or bottle.
3. The antipasti room at Terrazza. This room is dedicated to perfectly storing —and serving — imported cured hams, cheeses and jars of fresh antipasti. The antipasti room inside Terrazza is an Italian food lover’s version of heaven, so make sure to peek inside before ordering a plate of its precious European-imported offerings.
4. Whisky flights. The Macallan Whisky Bar & Lounge is ground zero for whisky connoisseurs and those aspiring to be. If you want to experience what the world of fine whiskies has to offer, the bar offers five flights including The Fine Oaks Through Time, featuring five of The Macallan's single malts aged in oak barrels for between 12 and 25 years, and Around The World, which lines up whiskies from five different countries for curious guests to enjoy.
5. Kaiseki ryori at Yamazato. Thanks to the Okura Hotel that’s also part of the Galaxy Macau complex, Yamazato is one of the not-to-be-missed culinary attractions. For a true gastronomic treat, make your way to the other side of the complex and indulge in the kaiseki offerings, which brings a series of small seasonal dishes at Yamazato. We especially loved the tempura kaiseki set.
