TACHO and Portuguese Curry Chicken

Tacho, a Macanese evolution of the Portugese dish Cozido, is a popular stew made with Chinese meats including cured sausages and duck, cabbage and puffed pork skins. Portugese Curry Chicken, first originated in the Portugese colony of Goa, India, wasn’t perfected until it reached Macau. Mild and slightly sweet thanks to the coconut milk, this Portuguese Chicken curry with potatoes is brightly flavored with turmeric, tomatoes, olives, and lemon juice.

Pasteis de bacalhau

A popular appetizer, Pasteis de bacalhaua are codfish croquettes made from shredded fish, onion, garlic and parsley and served with green salad, olive and lemon.

Crab Congee

Flavorful crab soaked in a smooth and fragrant rice porridge.


Meaning “crown” in Portugese, Capella is a baked meatloaf dish made with cheese, black olives and breadcrumbs. The jewel on top: juicy bacon.
