Serendipity Restaurant Finds : New York City's Macao Trading Co

Macao Trading Co. on Urbanspoon Serendipity Restaurant Finds sometimes appear when I start finding websites. If you like me, you can’t help it. These find are something like a technological “Kevin Bacon’s 6 degrees of Separation”. I find a link, I see it, it looks too interesting, I click on it and it leads me to an article, a review or information. This usually leads me to finding out more about a restaurant that I might visit in the future. At the least, if I am not able to visit and partake at the establishment, I possibly can find a restaurant close by in Kansas City that approximates it in terms of the cuisine, a recipe or something that I would like to explore. There were many at this link


One captures my interests because reportedly it married chinese and portugese influences from thethis province . Macau lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, bordering Guangdong province in the north and facing the South China Sea in the east and south.

Many of the dishes were not fusion. One that is mentioned is a true Macanese called Bacalao fried rice

I love the idea of Fusion recipes, foods and restaurants. I love Ming Tsai’s East- West collection and what he offers at his (near Boston) restaurant Blue Ginger, which I experienced in 2008.

One of their signature dishes is a a Macao type friend rice dish. I think I found a similar one. This website has a nice list of links to interesting rice dishes.
