The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Grand Hyatt Macau offers three different restaurants that are sure to please discerning palates. The four show kitchens at Beijing Kitchen serve classic northern Chinese cuisine from dim sum to Peking duck in a modern-rustic dining space with an eye-catching, floor-to-ceiling display of Chinese teapots and suspended Chinese birdcages on the ceiling. Good choices are the Hanghzou-style appetizers, Shanxi hand-shredded pork noodles and pan-fried minced pork dumplings, but the star of the menu is the authentic Peking duck, made in traditional jujube and almond wood-fired ovens by a master chef from Beijing. Innovative desserts include the super silky warm tofu served with ginger syrup and mango pudding.
Macau’s Asian and Portuguese culinary heritage unites at mezza9, the dinner-only restaurant that offers several wining and dining experiences under one roof. In a space created by acclaimed Japanese interior design firm Super Potato, you’ll find Macanese cuisine, sushi and sashimi, a delicatessen, a pâtisserie and wine cellar as well as wok, steam basket and grill stations. Stand-out dishes include roasted Japanese scallops, pea risotto and arroz de pato de cabidela (duck rice), a classic Macanese dish. Save room for dessert as the Grand Marnier souflée is the perfect sweet ending.
Lobby Lounge also features Pâtisserie, an elegantly casual spot where you can enjoy a wide selection of exquisite French pastries and local specialties like macarons, canelés and the famous Macanese egg tart. There’s also a brief list of Macanese dishes like fried minchi (minced beef, fried egg and potatoes over a bed of steamed rice) or the coconut noodle soup with chicken. A delectable high tea is served every afternoon.
