Clube Militar de Macau

If I have to recommend a restaurant with character in Macau, Clube Militar de Macau will be one of them. 

Founded in 1870, the Club is a private club that entertains officers and their invited guests for recreational activities.  The building itself is largely influenced by the Southern European architecture style of the time.  It has since been renovated and the restaurant is also opened to the general public.  (You will need a membership to enjoy the rest of the facilities and the membership is by invitation only.)

Located in the center of the city, only minutes away from the Lisboa casino.  I have passed by this place numerous times growing up, heard good things about their menu, but just never went.  So during one of the Whatsapp sessions on restaurant selection, the restaurant came up and we all agreed.  I felt like I stepped into a movie set as I entered the building.  The interior is just as pretty as its exterior.

For some odd reason, the restaurant reminds me of the movie "Somewhere in Time"

We opted out from the Sunday buffet and decided to order a la carte.  The buffet wasn't bad but since we all wanted something from the a la carte and the a la carte prices wasn't bad at all, this worked out great!  (All I wanted was the roasted suckling pig, their signature dish!  Click here for the menu.)

Everything we ordered was delicious and the plating is pleasing to the eyes.  I highly recommend the suckling pig!  You can tell from the pictures that we are carnivores.
