Manchu Han Imperial Feast
Feast like a King — literally — with this sumptuous royal affair at Fook Lam Moon’s Macau outpost. Harking back to Qing Emperor Kangxi’s 66th birthday when the first Manchu Han Imperial Feast was held, this banquet menu at Fook Lam Moon mimics the epic blowout with dishes influenced by over 5,000 years of Chinese history, spanning culinary traditions of different ethnic groups especially of the Manchu and Han. The menu is consulted by Lam Chan Kuok, the first chef in Macau to be accoladed the “Medal of Merit,” and is executed by Chef Simon Tho of Galaxy Macau and Fook Lam Moon’s chef de cuisine, Auyeung Chung Kei. The menu is available during lunch and dinner.

A Taste of Neo-Edomae Sushi: Guest Chef Shunji at Wynn Palace
When: 23–24 February, 7pm
Price: MOP4,888 per person
A seat at the three Michelin-starred Sushi Saito’s being highly coveted is a gross understatement — bookings to the Tokyo omakase bar or its Four Seasons Hong Kong eight-seater are notoriously difficult to get, and are only available to newcomers by referral from previous guests. But for two evenings in February, keen guests have the chance to taste some of its delicious bites, famously displaying its perfect textural and flavour balance between neta (fish) and shari (rice). This is all thanks to a guest chef appearance by Sous Chef Shunji Hashiba, a rising star who trained at the restaurant since age 18 and ascended to the side-counter at just 29. Find out more here.

Time Out! Top Dogs in Town
When: 27 February – 5 March
Vida Rica Bar at the Mandarin Oriental, Macau, is no stranger to world class drinks and bites (just a few weeks ago, Singapore’s renowned Manhattan bar shook things up for a two-night guest shift here). From 27 February, they’re bringing in some tastebud ticklers to help wash down your cocktails, in the form of gourmet international hotdogs: giving a twist on the humble ballpark snack with modern influences from the east to the west. Try the takoyaki inspired ‘dog with a choice cocktail from the bar’s splendid Legends & Cocktails menu, which draws reference from epic Asian and Portuguese myths.
