One of the city’s most recent resort destinations, Grand Lisboa Palace, is home to Wulao, Taiwan’s famous upscale hot pot restaurant. Stepping up the hot pot game in the city by introducing an authentic Taiwanese gourmet experience, Wulao’s hot pot is prepared with fine ingredients flown in directly from Taiwan. The restaurant’s interiors are filled with Chinese traditional colors, works of embroidery, and architectural elements, all gracefully combined to lend the space a “Heaven on Earth” atmosphere. Although Macau’s branch doesn’t offer the brand’s popular duck blood hot pot, the options available on its menu are no less soul-satisfying. We recommend you to go for a twin side hot pot and try two Wulao signature broths in one go: Layered Tofu Hotpot and Spicy Wulao Hotpot. While the first consists of layered tofu in a tasty pork-based broth boiled down with ginseng and Chinese herbs, the latter, which differs from any other Sichuan hot pot broth, is prepared with Chinese herbs and a few secret ingredients for a rich and unique flavor. Don’t pass up on their signature creamy tofu too, small iced tofu morsels that will melt in your mouth after simmering and soaking up the fragrant broth.
