Sand’s Cotai Central is a mall with a food court and several restaurants. This mall is in the middle of Sheraton and Conrad hotels as well as Holiday Inn. All these hotels are connected to Cotai Central.
The mall has a good mix of stores from popular brands like Zara, Mossimo Dutti, luxury brands like Bottega Veneta, Gucci and lots of jewelry stores.
After leaving our bags in the room we headed to the food court of a light and quick meal. The food court was huge maybe even bigger than the one at The Venetian’s. I was only able to go to one side.
I was thinking of getting Japanese food.
My parents were quickly enamored by the Taiwanese beef noodle stall.
The beef stock was amazing. The flavor had so much depth only hours of cooking beef bones can achieve. The best thing was when we still had noodles they gladly refilled our bowl with more soup.
Here’s something you don’t see so often. This bowl of noodles didn’t have any soup. You’re supposed to mix the minced meat paste with the noodles and enjoy. It was different and quite interesting.
I bought dessert at a stall the specialized in hot and cold Asian sweets.
Here are some pictures of the mall.
I didn’t eat much lunch because our room at the Sheraton Macao Hotel included an afternoon tea for two at the Palms Lounge just off the entrance to the hotel.
They had many delicious looking cookies and pastries as well as sandwiches.
My mom and I had the afternoon tea set. She thought we were going to choose from the menu and was shocked when I explained that everything on the menu was for us.
Instead of a pot of TWG tea we chose to have a cup of coffee each.
Other afternoon tea sets I’ve had included one piece each of savory or sweet treat per person. At the Palm’s we were given just one each of the items in the menu. It’s either we choose what we want to eat or just split everything down the middle. We went with the second option.
This was quite hard to split.
Everything we ate was scrumptious!! I specially loved the soft and buttery black sesame scones.
The green tea macaron with sweet yet tart yuzu (Japanese citrus) was a winner.
We decided to share the bounty with my dad who we left in the hotel room.
If you have time I highly recommend the afternoon tea set at the Palm’s Lounge of Sheraton Macao Hotel.
