Macao was a Portuguese colony in China for centuries, which explains the confluence of European and Asian cuisines one finds there. It also explains the unique offerings at Macao Trading Co., the second venture from the team behind Employees Only. The menu has been given the multi-cultural treatment: the African chicken is spiced with piri piri while the curried mussels are served with homemade chorizo. This approach was the contribution of David Waltuck, former chef-owner of Chanterelle and inveterate Chinatown-market maven. Dishes like Macanese chili prawns and hoisin-spiced hakka noodles are meant to complement exotic cocktails like the Drunken Dragon’s Milk, green-tea vodka blended with coconut purée, pandan syrup, Chinese-five-spice bitters, and Thai basil.
