A Lorche Restaurant

A Lorcha Restaurant is the other well-known Portuguese Restaurant in Macau, and as previously mention is just steps away from Restaurante Litoral.

Bread
Bread

The meal started with some complimentary bread, which was more like a small French roll. The bread had some heft and texture to it.

Minced Beef Croquettes & Shrimp Pies
Minced Beef Croquettes & Shrimp Pies

The Croquetes de Carne (Minced Beef Croquettes) are thin and cylindrical. The meat is minced a little to finely and the texture gets a little lost.

The Rissois de Camarao (Shrimp Pies) are slightly larger. The exterior is crunchy, while the interior is creamy. There are not large pieces of shrimp in the pies, but they are good.

Clams
Clams

The Ameijoas “Bulhao Pato” (~$14 USD) are clams in a broth of garlic, coriander and olive oil. The dish is loaded with plenty of meaty clams, and in a broth that is perfect for sopping up with bread.

Minute Steak

The Bitoque com Ovo Estralado e Batata Frita (~$17 USD), is a minute steak with fried egg and French fries. The steak had good flavor but was on the fatty side and was slightly tough. The egg was cooked over medium with a slightly runny yolk. If the egg had a runnier yolk, it would have made for a good sauce. The fries were slightly on the soggy side, which was a disappointment.

Serradura
Serradura

I once again tried Serradura (Biscuit Mousse) (~$6), hoping that it would be different at another restaurant. Sadly, this was very similar to the Serrudura I had a Reataurante Litoral which was basically unsweetened whipped cream with almost flavorless crushed biscuits on top. I guess I am more accustomed to American desserts which are much sweeter.

Caramel Egg Pudding

The Pudim de Ovos (Caramel Egg Pudding) (~$5.50) was a heavy, eggy flan. I like flan that is more silky and less eggy so this was not one of my favorite desserts.

Overall, I enjoyed the food at A Lorcha Restaurant more than I did at Restaurante Litorale based on this very small sampling of the menus. Service was also much better at A Lorche than Litoral which made for a better experience.

We did eat at A Lorcha Restaurant at lunch, which may account for the slightly lower prices as well.

I don’t think you can go wrong with either restaurant if looking for good food in Macau.
