ANTHONY SOUSA TAM
MACANESE CHEF AND OWNER OF ROOT RESTAURANT
The pork bun and egg tart are very well known foods in Macau, however there are plenty of local dishes that aren't on the tourist map. I love spicy beef noodles from Taipa Tip Kei Sopa Fritas (Av. de Kwong Tung 130, Edf. Nam San Block 6 r/c), and in winter I like to have a warm almond dessert at Tin Heung Yun (5 R. Tres do Bairro da Areia Preta) in the backstreets of Barra. We often get dim sum with the kids at Lua Azul (macautower.com.mo). On my days off, we go regularly to Vencedora (R. do Campo, 264R. Edf. Pak Nin Son) a Portuguese restaurant I have been going to since I was a toddler.
