Ying at Altira Cantonese Cuisine at its best!

The astonishing rise of Macau’s culinary reputation in the last decade or so, evidenced by the number of award-winning restaurants, including the coveted Michelin-starred designation, has been welcome news to the large foodie community in Hong Kong. One such restaurant garnering coveted awards, including a one-Michelin Star accolade, is Ying, a fine-dining Cantonese restaurant located in the Altira Hotel complex in Taipa, Macau.


Headed by Chef LiMingang, Ying serves tried-and-true authentic traditional Cantonese dishes as well as some with a more contemporary interpretation, all using the finest ingredients. Its impeccable, attentive service is in keeping with its elegant décor – a contemporary Chinese design using rich, luxuriant colours. The restaurant also offers several private rooms with spectacular views for private functions and a large well-stocked wine cellar with its own tasting room.
 

We were served an exquisite meal that befitted the fine setting, with several signature dishes highlighted. The Cherry Wood Honey Glaze Iberico Pork ($188) is easily one of the tastiest Char Siu we’ve ever had, the pork morsels practically melting in the mouth. Double-boiled Fish Maw with Sea Conch and Fresh Fruit ($268), which came next, is equally flavourful, with a generous portion of the highly prized fish maw served.


Two seafood dishes followed: the Pan-fried Mantis Shrimp with Cream ($388) is crispyfried but the meat remains sweet and tender; the Traditional Steamed Spot Grouper ($1680), which we would argue is best prepared steamed, just as Ying has done it, absolutely knocks it out of the park – succulent, tender meat that tastes
so fresh, accented nicely by its accompanying ingredients of wood-ear fungus.

 

We rounded off the meal with Braised Tomato with Mushroom and Vegetable ($48 per person) and Fried Rice in Lotus Leaf ($168), with both dishes fine renditions of traditional Cantonese cooking.


For visitors to Hong Kong, Macau can be a perfect one-day or overnight excursion, where the allure of casino, entertainment and fine dining awaits. Add Ying to the list of places worth visiting for a high-end Cantonese meal.
