6. Macao Trading Co., Portuguese-Chinese | Malay
The dishes at TriBeCa’s Macao Trading Company on 311 Church Street feature a unique blend of flavors from the East and West, ranging from Southeast Asia and Africa to Europe (flavors that were picked up along the trading route between Macau and Portugal). Offering “a true journey of the taste buds across the continents,” the restaurant takes inspiration from the gambling parlors and opium dens of 1930’s Macao, which means it also boasts a mysterious and exotic vibe.
Its signature Eurasian cuisine includes dishes like the Five Spiced Lamb shank served with kabocha squash, bok choy, red chili oil; the Crispy Whole Fish with wok fried coriander long beans, and the Macanese Lobster Noodles.
