If you're looking for something a little different in Macau, why not grab a group of friends to experience the Asian hotpot at Xin? During your next trip to our neighbouring SAR, I highly recommend trying Xin – the only hotpot restaurant in Macau and winner of a Bib Gourmand award from the 2017 Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau. As well as a full dinner menu, Xin has a large bar area where guests can get together beforehand to enjoy drinks and soak up the vibrant ambience of the restaurant.
Based at the Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, this unique eatery offers a diverse array of hotpot and a fresh-from-the-tank seafood experience, seamlessly combining Asian and pan-Asian cuisines. The dining room is simply set and lets the ingredients, flavour and quality of the food do the talking. The atmosphere of the restaurant is authentic and reminiscent of a food market, where visitors can wander around and personally choose their own fare to cook and eat.
Lobsters, clams, mussels, scallops and much more fill the buffet station, as well as a selection of fresh vegetables, sides and seasonings, allowing guests to create a bespoke menu for their table. Each table receives its own individual pots, and visitors can choose one of the seven soups to form the base of their meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the Nyonya laksa broth and found it to be creamy and fragrant – perfect for dipping my choice meat and seafood. For those who are more adventurous, I'm told that the hot and spicy chilli oil and Sichuan peppercorn broth packs a punch.
The dinner buffet menu is available on Friday and Saturday from 6–11pm for MOP438 per person and from Sunday–Thursday from 6–11pm for MOP398 per person.
