The Venetian Macao’s Portofino and The Golden Peacock Restaurants Introduce New Regional Speciality Menus
(Macao, Aug. 18, 2017) – The Venetian® Macao’s two exceptional signature restaurants – the award-winning PortofinoItalian restaurant and one-Michelin-starred The Golden Peacock Indian restaurant – will introduce a selection of new speciality regional menus from Sept. 1–30, 2017, with dishes starting from just MOP98*.
Portofino’s talented Senior Chef Domenico Cicchetti will present a Sicilian à la carte menu using ingredients directly sourced from the legendary Italian island. Sicily’s rich history and culture is apparent in its vibrant cuisine, which is both delicious and healthy, with an emphasis on fresh vegetables and fruit, olive oil, seafood, rice and grains.
“We are sourcing and bringing over some amazing ingredients from Sicily especially for this promotion, and can guarantee diners authentic flavours from this distinctively different part of Italy,” said Chef Domenico. “Rustic yet sophisticated, the emphasis is on the quality of ingredients combined with the artful use of Sicilian herbs and spices.”
Meanwhile The Golden Peacock will offer the Indian regional cuisine of Goa, which as a former Portuguese territory shares many parallels with Macao, especially in its intriguing blending of eastern and western influences. Diners can expect an emphasis on seafood, along with coconut, chili peppers, rich spices and vinegar, which gives the food its unique flavour. A nine-course tasting menu is offered at MOP888* and an à la carte menu with dishes starting at MOP108*.
