MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Not familiar with the food of Macau? Not to worry—Fat Rice turns the uninitiated into believers nightly. In fact, the restaurant’s thriving success led to an expansion that includes a cocktail lounge and bakery next door. Bar seating around the open kitchen gives a bird’s-eye view of the mélange of ingredients used in each dish, though servers are happy to walk any guest through the intoxicating mashup of Portuguese-meets-Asian cuisine. Sharing is recommended for the namesake arroz gordo, a paella-esque blend of meat, shellfish and pickles. Pillowy bread pairs well with crisp chili prawns stuffed with a flavorful blend of fermented black beans and garlic; while chrysanthemum gelée served with jackfruit and peanuts is a sweet and salty thrill.
