Get to know Macau.

Macau—an autonomous region on the south coast of China—was once one of the world's busiest trading ports, situated along the spice route. It became a crosswords for European, Asian, Portuguese, Malaysian, and Indian trade, resulting in a unique culinary tradition. Fat Rice, a wildly popular Chicago restaurant, is a shrine to that tradition—and The Adventures of Fat Rice tells the tale of how the owners sought out the cuisine and brought it to the United States. Familiarize yourself with dishes like Lacassa (Macanese Rice Vermicelli Stir-Fry) and Empada de Peixe (Macanese Fish Pie).
