Gathering dining place: Fat Tea Macanese Food, PJ

I first heard the Macanese cuisine from one of my gourmand friends, Tiffany.
Macanese cuisine, a unique mesh of flavours derived from Macau (Cantonese) and Portuguese influences, and this Fat Tea Macanese Food place is one of the first Asian fusion cuisine spanning the heritage from Portugal, Canton, Melaka, Africa.

This is indeed a special cuisine.

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Prawn Rissois

Prawn Rissois, RM19

Fried pastry crumbled rissoles (small croquette rolled in breadcrumbs, deep fried) with parsley, onion and prawn filling, and creamy Béchamel (French sauce - one of the so-called 5 Mother Sauces - made from butter, milk, flour). 

5 Mother Sauces (in France)
French cuisine is all about sauce. I'm not very familiar with French cuisine, so I spent sometimes reading about it. Probably one day I got to learn about it. 

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Portuguese Chicken "Po Kok Khai"

Portuguese Chicken "Po Kok Khai", RM28

Chicken baked in creamy sauce with coconut milk, tomato and potatoes, bacon and chorizo (a type of pork sausage) on the top.

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Australian Beef Brisket & Tendon Braised Stew

I'm totally in love with the bread.

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Australian Beef Brisket & Tendon Braised Stew

Australian Beef Brisket & Tendon Braised Stew, RM52

Slow stewed beef brisket (cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef) and tendon.

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Duck Rice

Duck Rice, RM28

Fragrant rice is cooked with pulled duck and finished with a layer of crusty cheese and duck bacon bits. It's a hefty dish so perhaps order to share if you're not accustomed to having too much rice at lunchtime.

Fat Tea Macanese Food, Fried Lacassa

Fried Lacassa, RM19

Maco style stir-fried vermicelli rice noodle with pickled ginger, prawn and char siew.
Hmm, not so much to my liking.

Good for sharing


I got to try the Serradura, sawdust pudding, in the next visit.
"The smooth cold custard battles for attention with fine sawdust (crushed tea biscuits), while a fluffy sponge lies beneath to offer some balance between the two."
This review triggered my taste buds.

Cheers to the never-ending food, friendships, and surprises!
