The foods of Macau

Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. A Portuguese territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of cultural influences.
While it’s famous for casino revenues crushing those of Las Vegas, Macau’s history as a former port during the spice trade resulted in an awesome cuisine entirely its own.
Macanese cuisine is suspected to have evolved as different styles of cooking became infused into traditional Portuguese cooking using local ingredients and spices from Africa, India and the coast of Malacca. And then, Chinese cooking techniques became integrated into these dishes as well.
