Celebrated Macanese restaurant offers convivial, family-friendly atmosphere and home-style dishes

Renowned Macanese chef Florita Alves takes great pleasure in introducing her handpicked Macanese menu at La Famiglia restaurant in Taipa Village Macau, with the aim of promoting Macanese culinary and dining culture locally and internationally.

Located in a bustling alley near Cunha Street in Taipa Village, La Famiglia offers a convivial, family-style atmosphere and signature Macanese dishes created by Chef Florita who, since the restaurant’s opening in 2017, has taken the helm of the kitchen.

Adding to her widespread acclaim, Florita has travelled to many countries to promote the art of Macanese gastronomy and rich culinary traditions.

The restaurant’s ground and first floor dining levels display a wide selection of Portuguese wines that perfectly complement La Famiglia’s home-style Macanese dishes. Traditional furnishing in warm tones offers a comfortable and leisurely environment for diners.  For special occasions and events, private areas on the second and third floors provide a perfect setting for small gatherings, while the rooftop is ideal for chilling out and enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the neighbourhood.

La Famiglia’s menu boasts a wide selection of Macanese dishes to suit all tastes, including “minchi” (sautéed minced pork), capela, African chicken, sapateira recheada (stuffed crab on the shell), fried shrimp with garlic butter sauce, sautéed clams in white wine sauce, fried bacalhau (cod) “a brás”, grilled Angus T-bone, Portuguese suckling pig and seafood casserole.  A generous selection of wines and cocktails are also on offer to complement the array of Macanese flavours.

“Florita is a prominent culinary ambassador in the Macanese community and we are excited to have her at La Famiglia, showcasing her culinary excellence,” says José Reis, Head of F&B Operations at Taipa Village Destination Limited. “In her capable hands, La Famiglia is a great addition to the restaurant scene in Taipa Village, contributing greatly to Macau’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

With the establishment of La Famiglia, Taipa Village will continue its revitalisation as Macau’s leading gastronomic destination. The excellence of the restaurant’s Macanese cuisine further demonstrates Taipa Village’s dedication to promoting gastronomy in Macau, and makes a significant contribution to the sustainable development of the territory’s non-gaming tourism.
