Casa de Tapas 塔巴斯西班牙小館 – Must-Eat Suckling Pig

Very often we go for a nice Portuguese meal in Macau because it is where would make it authentic. This time we come to the Old Taipa Village to find a new tapas restaurant, Casa de Tapas, that includes a bar on the first floor, a regular dining room on the second and a balcony on the third to form the three-storey blue building.

The restaurant serves contemporary Spanish cuisine in ways of bite-sized tapas and sharing mains.
We start with a complementary bread basket with a note-worthy garlic spread on the side.

The selection of tapas includes tomato meatballs, mushroom & Iberico ham and two kinds of tostada among which I like the mackerel one more because of its delicious roasted pepper salsa.

The seafood paella is marvelously displayed, cooked to the perfect texture and has a prominent tomato base. The variety of seafood also makes it a great dish to share between 4 pax.

While the pan fried seabass is so beautiful in presentation, the suckling pig is the most outstanding dish in flavors, traditionally cooked with crispy skin and tender meat, along with breadcrumb coated apple and fresh slaws.

We end our filling meal with a chocolate fondant with almond sorbet, though we hope for stronger almond flavor from the center, it is overall an overwhelming bites for the palate.

On top of that, an extensive choice of sangria, Spanish wines, cocktails and mocktails are available; however we opt for two mocktails that are both equally delicious, especially the Dos Chicas, a mix of cranberry and orange juices.
