Trip to Macau Day 2 Part 2

Macau Tower Convention and Entertainment centre

 

As mentioned in my previous post, here we are, at Macau Tower & Convention Centre. Since most of our food hunt were more focused on light street snacks, light lunch and etc. We decided to tryout to have a sky high lunch buffet in the tower.

There were 2 session on the afternoon for the 360 restaurant. Lunch buffet which starts from 12pm to 3pm and tea time (serves light snacks and pastries, cakes and etc) which starts from 3pm to 6pm. Session after 6pm onwards were fine dining. It cost us 218MOP (RM100) per person. Which was the most expensive lunch we ever had in the entire trip. We were guided to the lift where it travel from ground floor to 60th floor in less than 2minutes which was pretty fast.

NOTE: There were few other activities in the tower like bungee jump, skywalk and etc. But of course, never try it after buffet :P


Dishes ranging from fried rice, noodles, fertucini, spaghetti, fish fillets with red sauce, sushi, bbq pork, local foods like curry fishballs, soup noodles and some desserts like cakes, pasteries.

Overall, the environment was quite nice where you can view 360 degree of panoramic view of Macau from the Tower restaurant while dining inside the restaurant. The table area will be rotating 360 degree starting from 12pm and ends on 3pm. So, you know when the session ends when it stops rotating.

NOTE: If you’re planning to have a romantic lunch, tea time, or even dinner, this could be one of the spot you’re looking forwards to.

After finishing our lunch, next stop, Largo Do Pagode Da Barra to visit Ah Ma temple (where the Ma-cau’s name derived from), and Casa Du Mandarim. Ah-Ma temple was located in on Macau Bay, this is the oldest temple structure in Macau.


Ah Ma temple, Macau
Macau's Mandarin's House

From Ah Ma temple, we walk back and heading to one of Macau’s famous historical building, Casa Du Mandarim (Mandarin’s house). It was one of the biggest house built around year 1869. However, due to its’ location were slightly hidden. It took us quite some time to find. Entrance were free, but please take note, they will close and prohibit entrance after 5:30pm. The Mandarin house occupied 4000m² which consists of 60 rooms. For those who admires traditional architectures, this is one of the place you can’t missed out.

Cheong Kei with their shrimp roe noodle

As the night falls, we ended up in Cheong Kei Noodles shop, as most of us were still full, we only order 1 plate of their signature “Har Ji Mee”(shrimp roe egg noodle). It didn’t come with any side dishes. The noodle tasted crunchy at every bite with their aromatic shrimp roe. There were few other dishes like their wanton, prawn dumplings and etc. The shop is located in Rua do Felicidade, it took us quite some time walking from Mandarin’s house.

After the wonderful dinner, it’s the end of the night head back hotel to rest for the next day trip (final day).

      Thanks for visiting 🙂 Regarding on food price, Portuguese tart cost around MOP 7-8 (around RM3). In low to medium range restaurant cost around MOP20(RM8) – MOP35(RM13) per person.
      However if you choose to dine in casino, hotel, price would goes up to RM60++ per person.

      Hi TeHoo,

      I experience in Emperor Hotel was nice comfortable, easy access to most tourist attraction and very convenient access to stores, transport and etc.
      Most of the hotel in Macau up to standard. You may refer to Agoda.com for booking 🙂
