2018 is be­ing cel­e­brated as the Year of Gas­tron­omy in Macao, which is one of only 26 cities around the world to be recog­nised as a Creative City of Gas­tron­omy by the UNESCO Creative Cities Net­work. Macao has many mag­nif­i­cent places to tan­ta­lise the taste-buds, with one of them be­ing An­tónio, lo­cated in Taipa Vil­lage. The restau­rant, which opened its doors in 2007, is led by award-win­ning Por­tuguese chef An­tónio Coelho, who is ded­i­cated to the pro­mo­tion of au­then­tic Por­tuguese cui­sine with a modern twist. The menu boasts such de­lights as sautéed clams, Por­tuguese duck rice, Por­tuguese rab­bit, char­coal bar­be­cue jumbo tiger prawns and seafood paella ‘An­tónio’ style. And the only dilemma with dessert is whether to or­der the ba­nana au flam­bée with rum or the Por­tuguese cheese­cake. Lo­cated in the best pre­served area of Taipa, the restau­rant is warm and invit­ing. Be­fore your meal, take time to ex­plore Taipa Vil­lage, which was for­merly home to lo­cal fish­er­men and still fea­tures cob­bled streets and tra­di­tional shop­houses that are far from the glitz and glam­our of Co­tai Strip. an­to­niomacau.com
