Taipa

NZ House & Garden - - NOTED -

If hang­ing out in replica Euro­pean cities in the casi­nos of the Cotai Strip gets a bit much, head to nearby Taipa Vil­lage for a re­al­ity check. The war­ren of nar­row lanes are lined with pas­tel-coloured colo­nial build­ings, Chi­nese shop fronts, an­cient tem­ples and, in typ­i­cal Ma­canese fash­ion, some se­ri­ously good bak­eries and fu­sion restau­rants. On Rua do Cunha (aka Food Al­ley) you’ll find the leg­endary Lord Stow’s Bak­ery, fa­mous for its Por­tuguese egg tarts. All roads lead to revered Por­tuguese restau­rant Antonio where you can en­joy a “P&T” (white port and tonic) be­fore tuck­ing into tra­di­tional fare to the tune of the in-house fado mu­si­cian.
