Fodor's Expert Review Portas do Sol

$$$ Downtown Macau Chinese

Despite the Portuguese name, exquisite dim sum and Chinese haute cuisine are Portas do Sol's specialties. Tiny, sweet Shanghainese pork buns, turnip cakes, and soup dumplings are some of the traditional offerings; there are also innovative new creations that look like miniature jewels on the plate. For dessert you can choose from a wide variety of Chinese sweets, including a fish-shaped chilled mango and coconut pudding, double-boiled papaya with snow fungus (a tasteless mushroom that becomes gelatinous when cooked), and deep-fried sweet milk with longan fruit. Reservations are a good idea on weekends, as this place fills up with Hong Kong and mainland visitors.
