This year, Galaxy Macau will be launching a series of gastronomic promotions, welcoming the opening of several distinctive restaurants, and presenting a meticulously curated video series to complement these initiatives. These videos will invite gastronomes from different regions and countries who will share the authentic charm of their respective cuisines from a professional and unique perspective. They will highlight the genuine flavors showcased at Galaxy Macau and the master chefs' pursuit of ultimate craftsmanship, allowing diners to not only enjoy authentic hometown flavors but also experience the emotional connections and cultural significance embedded within.

The inaugural video features Dong Jianmin, a renowned food critic and host of CCTV's culinary program, who hails from Beijing and focuses on Northern Chinese cuisines. Dong will explore various Northern restaurants at Galaxy Macau, including Blossom Palaces, Bei Shan Lou, and The Noodle Kitchen, delving into aspects such as ingredient selection, cooking techniques, interior design inspiration, ambiance, team dynamics, and service standards. Through this exploration, he unveils the recreation and innovation of authentic Northern flavors within Galaxy Macau, as well as the profound nostalgia and enduring local sentiments behind their timeless and exquisite taste.

This first chapter has been released on the official website and social media platforms of Galaxy Macau. Each restaurant will also introduce classic or seasonal Northern dishes to delight the taste buds of food enthusiasts during this refreshing spring season. The well-known Blossom Palaces will showcase the beloved Northern flavor of Fruitwood Roast Duck with its specialist on Beijing and Huaiyang cuisine. The well-selected “Beijing Four-Strain Duck” undergoes a series of meticulous and complex processes before entering the oven. During the roasting process, seasonal fruitwood is used as fuel to impart a delightful aroma to the duck. Subsequently, a skillful chef employs special technique originating from the imperial court, to ensure the duck is evenly heated and excess fat is rendered out. The freshly baked roast duck emerges plump, full-bodied, and enticingly fragrant. Each bite of its crispy skin and tender meat is a memorable experience. While Bei Shan Lou, which focuses on Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang and Shandong flavors, will offer seasonal nourishing dishes. Inheriting the essence of cuisine from Northern China, the chef curates a seasonal menu, highlighting spring ingredients sought-after for their taste and health benefits, such as Chinese Toon and Spring Bamboo Shoots. Using traditional Northern culinary methods, he presents the authentic taste that has been enjoyed for decades, or even centuries, by the people of the region. Culinary experts from Shanxi, the hometown of noodles, The Noodle Kitchen stand ready to impress your taste buds with authentic flavor of North and South China. They will offer Qingdao King Prawn, Quinoa Noodle Soup and Poached Pork, Crab Meat, Shrimp Dumplings. Quinoa contributes to the springy texture of the healthy noodles that swim in an umami-packed prawn broth. These handmade parcels with juicy fillings are enhanced by the spicy aroma of Sichuan chilies and peppers.

Moreover, guests who use ICBC Galaxy Macau Visa Card to settle payments at selected restaurants in Galaxy Macau will enjoy a discount of up to 20%.
