Multiple fresh retail concepts and a new car-parking facility boost
the area’s position as a key non-gaming destination in Macau
Taipa Village has continued its development as one of Macau’s major non-gaming destinations with innovative new dining and retail concepts opening throughout the village in recent months. These exciting new venues are complemented by the long-awaited opening of a new 400-space car park, which will significantly improve access to Taipa Village.
The new concepts include King’s Lobster restaurant, Restuarante Portugues Pescador, DiGreen, Lord Stow’s Bakery and O Santos Loja Portuguesa.
“We are delighted to welcome these colourful and vibrant establishments, which will further position Taipa Village as Macau’s most sought after lifestyle destination,” says Pamela Chan, Senior Marketing Manager at Taipa Village Destination Limited.
“Tourists and locals alike are being increasingly drawn to the rapidly regenerating Taipa Village, made readily more accessible by the new carpark, improved casino access and ultimately a light rail station due to open in 2019.”
Further openings are anticipated throughout this year, including the entry of number of major international retail brands.
Innovative Dining Concepts
King’s Lobster Restaurant
Situated in the centre of Taipa Village, King’s Lobster Restaurant offers customers a truly distinctive dining experience that takes a step beyond tradition. Officially opened in January, the restaurant introduces a new gastronomical concept by serving plump, fresh, succulent lobster in a soft bun. King’s Lobster also boosts a wide range of European dishes such as grilled Boston lobster, pulled pork roll, juicy beef burgers and raclette served with potatoes, vegetables and sausages. A superb selection of wines and spirits to pair with lobster and meat dishes makes King’s Lobster a perfect venue to enjoy a memorable meal with friends and family.
Restaurante Portugues Pescador
Located near popular Cunha Street, Restaurante Portugues Pescador is home to the traditional food culture of a Cha Chan Teng (local teahouse) while also providing a contemporary Macanese fine dining experience under the same roof. The restaurant’s extensive menu allows visitors to enjoy a true taste of Portuguese and Macanese cuisine.
The ground floor sets the scene with an authentic local teahouse ambience – complete with a mobile tea stall, traditional chequered tiles and four-bladed fans – where customers can enjoy traditional local snacks such as Portuguese spicy fish buns and curry sirloin buns, and classic beverages like clay pot brewed milk tea. The first floor captures a contemporary Portuguese mood with beautiful azulejos (traditional Portuguese blue and white tiles) and a convivial atmosphere in which visitors can tuck into Macanese dishes such as Portuguese chicken and Portuguese pork knuckle, and sample an excellent selection of Portuguese wines.
DiGREEN (Diamond in Green) was founded by four passionate young locals who are dedicated to enhancing healthy lifestyles by offering low-fat, low-calorie snacks and treats that will tickle your taste buds and keep your tummy trim. As its name implies, DiGREEN is a true gem, a local brand that really shines.
From its beginnings as a wholesale business, DiGREEN has chosen the thriving surrounds of Taipa Village to make the leap into retail, opening its first flagship store in Taipa Village. To promote its healthy lifestyle ethos, DiGREEN offers an exceptional selection of healthy, low-sugar snacks made from the freshest and most natural ingredients, including signature popsicles and cones with flavours ranging from mango, durian and coconut to popcorn, black glutinous rice and white coffee. This innovative store also whips up coffees, frappes and other beverages to round out its menu.
Lord Stow’s Bakery
A Macau icon, Lord Stow’s Bakery was founded in Coloane, Macau on 15th September 1989 by Englishman Andrew Stow. Andrew was awarded the Medal of Tourism Merit by the Macau SAR in January 2006, in recognition for creating his unique egg tart recipe which became this signature Macau delicacy. Now Lord Stow’s has come to Taipa Village, bringing its tempting taste to Cunha Street, where Andrew’s Egg Tarts are baked on site. Lord Stow’s original Bakery continues to operate in Coloane Village, offering European-style pastries and bread. It is complemented with a branch at The Venetian Macao.
O Santos Loja Portuguesa
O Santos Loja Portuguesa is a delicatessen opened by Mr. O Santos, founder of the renowned O Santos Portuguese restaurant in Taipa Village. The shop is a treasure trove of imported Portuguese food and wine such as olive oil, sardines, coffee, tea, pastries, souvenirs and other traditional Portuguese delicacies that bring a distinctive touch of the old country to Taipa Village. A wine cellar on the first floor boosts an impressive collection of Portuguese wines, ranging from top-shelf bottles to quality wines for everyday enjoyment.
New multi-storey car park
The long-awaited Chun Su Mei Car Park provides almost 400 parking spaces over four floors for both cars and motorcycles and improves access significantly for visitors to Taipa Village. Well-situated in the heart of the village, the facility is also equipped with recreational and leisure facilities that provide indoor space for weekend fairs and entertainment.
