Originated in Chaves, a city in Northern Portugal, Pastéis de Chaves Macau is a small bakery shop that solely sells Portuguese savory flaky pastry with 150 years of history. Owned by a Portuguese chef and entrepreneur from Chaves and his local partner, the shop offers traditional authentic Portuguese crispy snacks.
Pastéis de Chaves is a flaky pastry born in 1862 in the Portuguese city of Chaves. Its classic recipe includes minced beef filling. However, nowadays chefs bake them with a variety of savory (chicken, bacalhau) and sweet flavors. The Macanese bakery makes their pastéis in-house with high-quality products. The selection features both classic beef pastries and modern versions with other fillings, including vegetarian (with mushrooms).
The shop is located at St. Lazarus neighbourhood. So it is easy to reach, especially if you are on a sightseeing tour.
