So we've come to the end of our tour of Michelin-starred restaurants in Macau... and our 10th stop would be Wing Lei (永利軒) at the Wynn Macau. We had just finished lunch about two hours ago, so while I wasn't stuffed to the point of being nauseous, I really wasn't all that hungry. Thankfully, we were joined by three additional mouths who weren't at lunch with us, and who - presumably - were hungry enough to help take in extra portions of food.
Having been a fan for a little while, I finally got a chance to say more than just "Hello" to Chef Guillaume Galliot of The Tasting Room - thanks to his lovely wife who decided to bring him along. So it only made sense that we put the Man in the White T-Shirt next to him... and let the chefs yap.
Crispy sweet potato with chestnut (栗子紅薯棗) - there was barely a hint of chestnut... and the sweet potato wasn't obvious, either.
I wasn't in the mood to drink any wine, and in any case the wine list wasn't particularly inspiring. We did have a couple of thirsty people who proceeded to order a bottle of white wine... which turned out to be corked. Since they only stocked 1 bottle of that particular wine, they decided to give up and drank beer and whisky instead...
This was a pretty good dinner. For most of the dishes, the flavor combinations worked and the quality of ingredients was high. We didn't order any premium or luxe dishes, so we got away pretty easy in terms of the bill. So comparatively this was a "cheap and cheerful" dinner.
Most impressive of all, after we had finished order, the manager actually asked us whether we wanted our food served one dish at a time, or if we wanted all our food at the same time. This was simply unheard of at Chinese restaurants... and definitely earned them some brownie points in my book!
