Fat Tea Macanese Food

27 Wishlisted
Macanese cuisine is derived from Portuguese sailors and settlers who brought European ingredients as well as other favorites that were accessible at major trading ports like The Cape (South Africa), Goa (India) and Melaka (Malaysia) to Macau. Along with local Cantonese influences, the unique blend of flavors that you can't find anywhere else in this part of the world resulted in one of the first fusion cuisines in the world. Fat Tea - Macau's ‘Cha Gordo’ is a celebration of Macanese cuisine and culture. Cha Gordo is Portuguese for "fat tea" and was a regular gourmand affair for Macanese families to celebrate special occasions. The phrase is a way to describe a rich spread and to the Macanese, "fat" equates to rich which translates to happiness.

Nothing better than well marinated minced pork, crunchy pork lard and runny egg. Service is good and they constantly checked on us as it was our first time there!


Tender and juicy meat, i almost wanted to finish it all my myself...
Was looking for a venue for mum’s birthday celebration, and saw @fatteafood serving Macanese food: rice, noodles and bread- something that can make everyone happy especially the elderly, something close to Chinese cuisine but not Chinese.

😋Fragrant rice with pulled duck, bacon & cheese 🥓🧀🍚 #fatteafood #macanesefood #dindins #aboutlastnight #humpday

Putting Macanese food on the grid is Fat Tea that strives to emulate soulful Macanese recipes in their homey Damansara Perdana eatery. Earmarked by Portuguese and Cantonese influences, Macanese cooking leans toward heavy comforts so save this for a laidback lunch. Expect dishes unheard of, like the Minchi (RM22). Touted to be Macau's national dish, the specialty is a very comforting jumble of pork mince, onions, fried potatoes and fried egg on rice. Another rice dish on the rise is the Duck Rice (RM26) — it's nothing like the local version. Baked in a Macau-imported porcelain dish, the herb-fragrant rice shares its spotlight with lots of delicious pulled duck and on top, chorizo, duck bacon and crusty cheese come together for a scrumptious mouthful. End your Macanese meal with the popular Serradurra (RM8). Also known as sawdust pudding, it layers crumbled Marie biscuits with whipped cream and soft, fluffy sponge cake.

Before Fat Tea, Macanese food was almost non-existent in KL (please, don't even bring up that certain pork chop bun chain). The cuisine is a unique mesh of flavours derived from Portuguese and Cantonese influences, which Fat Tea attempts to recreate. Had the Duck Rice (RM26) upon recommendation and it's unlike anything I've ever tasted. Fragrant rice is cooked with pulled duck in a porcelain dish (also imported from Macau) and finished with a layer of crusty cheese and duck bacon bits. The side of green beans were a bit too oily for my liking, but I enjoyed the rice nonetheless. It's a hefty dish so perhaps order to share if you're not accustomed to having too much rice at lunchtime. Also try the Serradura (RM8, sawdust pudding)! The smooth cold custard battles for attention with fine sawdust (crushed tea biscuits), while a fluffy sponge lies beneath to offer some balance between the two.
