Macau trip

I spent almost a week in Macau and Zhuhai.

Wednesday Pete and I met a client for supper at the casino who she is the brand manager for. We ate the Japanese restaurant there, and it was one of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had! The chef gave us a starter that was a rose bowl covered with wax paper. We peeled the paper off and it started smoking, as if there were dry ice in it. It smelled like a very fragrant wood smoke, and in the bottom was smoked salmon with a special sauce.

The client loves sashimi (raw fish) even more than I do. We had a great platter that included blowfish and a fish with huge eyes (I can’t remember the name), plus the standard tuna and such. We also had Oumi beef, which is similar to Kobe, but even better according to the chef. (Yes, the chef cooked special dishes for us that weren’t even on the menu.) He also showed us the certificate that proved it was Oumi. He said many places may claim they have Kobe or Oumi, but they don’t have the proof. It was the most amazing beef I have EVER had. By far. (Sorry Dad!) The next morning she told us the bill was a bit more than expected – she implied that the beef alone was somewhere between $300 – $400 USD!! Of course she was way too polite to ever tell us what it actually was.

For more information on Oumi beef, click here. If you are in China, click here. (It’s the same site, but on Blogspot so it is blocked on the mainland.)

Friday night we went out for dinner with the Macau office.

I somehow managed to lose my voice on Tuesday, and it was gone for an entire week! When we saw the “Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, See no Evil” monkeys, we had to take a photo. Pete was tired of hearing the girls all week, and I couldn’t talk, so it was easy for us to be like the monkeys!
