Sofitel Macau Launched March Selection
PRIVÉ FRENCH BISTRO
Casual Elegance at Privé
Sofitel Macau introduces Parisian-style bistro dining at the re-imagined Privé.
Imagine you’re vacationing, or the holidays have arrived, and a day of sightseeing or visiting with family has worked up a pre-dinner appetite. Here in Macau you may drop into a cha lau, a teahouse, for a light meal and refreshment. In Italy you would be heading to the nearest trattoria. In France, anyone looking for a snack — perhaps more — in between traditional meal hours that also show off the best of local delicacies, will head to a bistro. With an eye to single dishes designed to take less than the four hours demanded by a traditional dinner in a restaurant, bistro now are chic, relaxed, yet boisterous alternatives for large gatherings and intimate dinners alike, surrounded in everything from turn-of-the-century gilded halls to funky Années folles-era — Jazz Age — Art Deco interiors.
Privé’s bistro menu will offer guests a selection of French favorites to choose from — classic Niçoise Salad to Duck Confit —along with a range of wines that reflect the diversity of the country’s cuisine and viticulture.
Sit down and wrap yourself in a traditional bistro atmosphere and sample Privé’s signature dishes, including: La Bouillabaisse, the Provençal fish stew made with prawn and scallop; the must-try Le Croque Nunu, a contemporary spin on the croque-madame featuring extra old mimolette cheese from Lille; tender lamb with a side of crunchy vegetables and garlic confit in Les Côtelettes d’Agneau Grillées; or the house specialty, Le Privé Burger, finished with burrata cheese and sour cucumber.
No French meal would be complete without the perfect drink, so wash a selection of cheeses down with a bottle of Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Petit Chablis, try pairing a Domaine Vacheron Sancerre with the Japanese scallops in Le Carpaccio de St Jacques; enjoy a luscious Bordeaux — a Senejac, Haut-Medoc — or a robust Domaine de Beaurenard Rasteau Syrah with meat dishes; or honour the bistro’s roots with a cold Kronenbourg 1664 with steak frites. Whatever the craving, relax, and bon appétit.

The Taste of Lion City
Due to its geographic proximity, Singapore has a multiracial culinary culture with influences from Cantonese, Fujianese, Indian, Indonesian, and Malay cuisines. The country is also renowned for Nyonya cuisine, a flavourful creation by Peranakan Chinese.

Beginning from 1 March to 30 April, Mistral Restaurant is launching a dinner buffet menu that serves over 30 Singaporean delicacies in rotation. For starters, guests can help themselves to a serving of the peanutty Gado Gado Salad, sweet and sour Rujak Salad, and all-time favourite Chicken and Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce. Other appetisers include Nyonya Kuih Pie Tee, which is filled with diced vegetables and prawns, Indonesian Otak Otak, a grilled fish cake that is mixed with spices and wrapped in banana leaf, and Popiah, a Fujianese fresh spring roll stuffed with vegetables and pork.
