Mezza 9

Grand Hyatt Macau

Mezza 9 Macau Buffet
Another awesome contender for the title of the best buffet in Macau is Mezza 9.

Inside the Grand Hyatt Macau is Mezza 9, the hotel’s buffet concept.

Currently available for just breakfast and dinner (to give the staff time to prepare everything without needing to compromise) the concept is “Dining from the Kitchen” which essentially means everything is prepared freshly as and when you ask for it.

Focusing on quality and freshness, Mezza9 is hoping to elevate buffet dining to another level, which has been helped by its interior, which was created by Japanese design firm SuperPotato.

Of course, there is also an element of theatre as diners watch chefs take ingredients from display cases and cook up dishes right then and there.

You can watch and wait for your dish or request it be delivered to your table.

This also means dishes can be tailored to your preference.

So whether you love or loathe something, it can be added with abandon or left out entirely. Mezza 9 also has three private dining rooms.

The Manor

St Regis Macao buffet

The Manor Macau buffet
When choosing a buffet Macau has no shortage of choices.

Sunday Brunch at The Major at St. Regis Macao is a lavish affair with dishes that exemplify the brand.

Chilled seafood – think lobster, shrimp, mussels, razor clams, and half a dozen kinds of oysters – is an excellent place to start to get your palate acclimatized for the feast to come.

Start slowly with an a-la-minute Caesar salad, lobster rolls and a cup of lobster bisque. Follow that with foie gras and steak from the teppan and hunks of roasted pork and beef.

Finish with dessert – macaroons are a must – and, if you have room, some cheese.

Oh, and there are also pass around dishes that will be delivered to your table. Add bottomless wine and beer if you like or stick with the juice and sangria that is included.
