Macau’s A Lorcha

Macau was once a Portuguese colony and it is still being felt until now with the cobblestone streets, architectural structures, street signs and also restaurants.

When traveling, food will always be one of the most important aspects. One’s culture will be reflected in the food that the country offers.

Last November 2010, we had the chance to travel to Macau and had a recommendation to visit this certain restaurant. It is said to be one of the best authentic Portuguese restaurants in Macau and so we gave it a try.

Located at: 289A Rua do Almirante Sergio


Portugal’s “cola”

Surprisingly, majority of A Lorcha’s staff were FILIPINOS which is quite an advantage because they gave us a free dish and they did the selection of food for us. They were all very excited and happy to see their “kababayans”.

Forgive me but I forgot all the names of the dishes we ate. Ooops.

This is what they gave for free! I think it’s a chorizo dish.

Overall, we had a excellent experience in A Lorcha. Good food, pleasant ambiance and nice staff, a bit pricey but worth every penny. It’s a must-visit when in Macau.

A Lorcha is also located to the Maritime Museum and the A-Ma Temple.
