[Macao] Where to Eat at the Sheraton Grand Macao


Heading over to Macau with your little ones? Looking for value for money dining options while you’re there? Whether you’re staying at the Sheraton Grand Macao (has access to Thomas and the Little Big Club!) or just dropping by for a meal, there’s plenty to eat. Recently, I went over for less than 24 hours and managed to squeeze in three meals, trying both new launches and classic favourites.

Dinner

On Friday night, a group of us headed to Feast, the hotel’s main buffet restaurant. The purpose of our visit was to check out the recently launched Singapore-style Crab Bash (MOP 488)! It was served seafood boil-style which meant tasty, sauced seafood came in buckets and was poured over the table so guests could don gloves and eat with their hands. There were three sauce options available: black pepper, salted egg, and butter with curry leaves. A bit of a shame the classic chili sauce wasn’t available and neither were fried mantou buns. But the fresh brioche with teriyaki butter was an unexpected and untraditional but undeniably tasty alternative.

For seafood lovers, the buckets are refillable but guests also have free rein of the main buffet. Loads of other Singaporean delicacies are available including rojak, bak kut teh, and kueh. There are also the standard Japanese, stir-fry, and a carvery stations. Don’t miss the flavourful Indian curries, especially the spicy fish one, or the tofu pudding.


Breakfast

While I usually skip breakfast (but never coffee), I can never resist the lure of a hotel breakfast buffet. I was back at Feast (MOP 248) at 6:55am … and I wasn’t alone! Quite a few couples and families were also there ready to eat once the restaurant opened at 7am. After ordering two Americanos (‘Oh just for me, I drink a lot of coffee … ’) I went to scope out the food. While I’m no buffet snob, I do slightly prefer Asian over Western ones because of the sheer variety of savoury foods available. This one had everything from two roast hams to Korean army stew.

Given how much I loved the Indian station the night before, I assembled a plate of dosa and chutneys first but this time it was the nasi lemak station that stole my heart. Having lived in Singapore for four years, I think I know my way around a good one, and this was was very delicious! The chicken rendang and sambal sotong may have been slightly less spicy than usual but both sauces were full of flavour, as was the rice. And when I broke open the runny yolk on the deep fried eggs and it mixed in with the other sauces … heaven on a plate.


Lunch

We ended our Sheraton food tour with yum cha at Yum Cha. This casual eatery offers a wide selection of affordable dishes. We tried a number of items, and I especially enjoyed the crispy black cod fried with garlic and chili (MOP 138), the sweet and sour pork with assorted fruits and balsamic vinegar (MOP 98), and the Iberico char siu (MOP 128).

The food might not blow your mind but it’s of good quality and service is fast and friendly.


Verdict

Sometimes it’s nice to get out of your hometown and indulge in a casual buffet (or two) / restaurant where no one knows your name and you can eat to your heart’s content. The Sheraton Grand Macao has plenty of options for adults and children looking to relax and indulge before heading back to real life.
