Healthy dining in Macau

Macau's new culinary trends point towards a healthier way of dining

Zi Yat Heen
Zi Yat Heen has been a lauded restaurant even before the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau edition was launched in 2009. The stunning Chinese restaurant, which opened in 2008, has firmly held its two Michelin stars since its establishment. And no wonder, Executive Chef Ho, with 17 years of experience at The Peninsula Hong Kong, has been at the helm of Zi Yat Heen, creating dishes that showcase the best of Cantonese cuisine with contemporary flair. Dainty, crispy crab claw with shrimp mousse is a must.

Golden Flower
This New Year's Eve, Il Teatro's Chef de Cuisine Anthony Alaimo has prepared a scrumptious gala dinner with five courses – with a vegetarian version if you prefer – for you to enjoy while looking out onto Performance Lake. Its great spectacle of water, fire and lights with accompanying music sets the perfect tone for ringing in 2015. Café Esplanada is also serving an amazing New Year’s Eve buffet, while offering a great selection of gifts, cookies and ginger bread houses for purchase.

Laurel
Laurel's landscaped interiors set this venue apart from other crowded Cantonese restaurants in town. Its extensive space aspires to a greener, more natural dining environment and does away with predictable elements that you would normally expect from a Chinese venue. Signature dishes are equally au naturel, offering healthier alternatives. Organic vegetables and free-range chicken are just some of the examples of how Laurel uses selective ingredients to create its contemporary dishes.
