The two-Michelin starred Golden Flower located on the ground floor of Wynn Macau is worthy of all the hype. The opulent setting gives the feeling you are dining like royalty. Here they primarily serve Tan cuisine – named after the master chef who invented it, Tan Zongjun, a Qing dynasty official, it’s a blend of the best northern and southern Chinese cooking. Tan cuisine uses labour-intensive cooking methods to preserve the flavours of the food.
Try the speciality Michelin menu where highlights include braised “three treasures” (abalone, fish maw and matsutake mushroom) in a supreme chicken broth. Another highlight is the juicy, tender broiled beef, served hot inside a crispy, flaky sesame puff – the most authentic way to enjoy this Lu-style dish. Service is exceptional – all staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the origins and history of the dishes. The restaurant’s tea sommelier is also on hand to pair a variety of China’s premium teas with your food. Dining here is a real treat and the reasonable prices (lunch starts from just MOP$250) is a steal for a two-Michelin starred restaurant of this calibre.
