Pictures of my first meal in Macau on 4/27/18 at 2 Michelin star restaurant ‘The Tasting Room’. This restaurant is working hard towards the third start and it will not be a surprise that they will get it soon. The menu was flawless.
The Tasting Room is located on the 3rd floor of the City of Dreams complex in Macau. A round restaurant with a lot of spaces among each table provides privacy and sense of luxury to the guests.

‘Chorba’ style soup with shellfish and baby squid 🦑. The vegetable knife cuts on this North African style soup were perfect. The warm consomé is poured table side tonrelease all the aromas of spice and seafood.
Cabbage dumpling with langoustine, foie gras and truffle. Veloute was made from langoustine and foie gras as well. A very decadent dish that even-though was made with rich ingredients it was very light on the palate.
Beef 🥩 by Master Butcher Olivier Metzger. This highly allocated beef is aged for two weeks, just enough to highlight the flavors. Vichyssoise leeks and potato purée accompany alongside.
On the side is probably one of the best pommes soufflées 🥔 I have ever had. These double fried thin layers of potatoes had the most perfect texture 🙌
The first dessert of the night showcases tropical fruits of mango, passion fruit and coconut, all this treasure is hidden inside the lemon meringue tart. A very refreshing desserts 🍋 🥥
