By now we all know that SOHO at City of Dreams is the hottest spot to be for casual dining, but more than that, for those who are looking for comfort food, you will find one of the best places for pizza and pasta at the venue. Following the success of its first location in Hong Kong, Shelter Italian Bar & Restaurant is set to raise the bar for chic-casual dining scene in Macau by presenting one of the most unique sustainable dining spaces in the region.
A contemporary culinary oasis, the brand new restaurant stays true to the group’s commitment to encouraging sustainable living in the city, and like its sister restaurant in Hong Kong, the concept and design of Shelter is a green oasis amidst the prosperous urban environment. Nature inspired designs and materials as well as an abundance of luscious greenery around the restaurant help create an indoor dining space that is fresh and tranquil. Shelter Italian Bar & Restaurant also boasts an al-fresco bar lounge and a café.
The restaurant’s thoughtfully designed menu showcases the essence of Italian cuisine, which lies in bringing out the true flavors, aromas and purity of the ingredients. The signature Chargrilled Australian M5 Wagyu Beef Toma Hawk, is tender, succulent and is served with garlic and rosemary baked potato and organic vegetables. Another highlight on the menu marries the sweetness of Spanish red shrimps with melt-in-the-mouth pan-seared foie gras and finished with a brush of balsamic vinaigrette sauce.
The team at Shelter Italian Bar & Restaurant knows that a dish is only as good as its ingredients. The commitment to using the freshest and best produce extends beyond sourcing from quality and reputable suppliers. Chef Nadia Frisina, one of the hottest talents in global cuisine, has created a pizza that mixes Chinese ingredients with the best Italian produces.
“At Shelter, we have traditional Italian pizzas like prosciutto e rucola arugula pizza, but if you want to try something different, we have one pizza that is made with Chinese mushrooms, artichoke, and olives. I like to give an Asian touch to my creations,” Chef Frisina explains.
Indeed, her creation is definitely one of a kind, delicious, yet healthy, a must-try. Complementing the dining experience is a carefully compiled menu of over 60 distinct international selections in wine, champagnes and cocktails. To end the meal on a high note, guests can indulge in a variety of sorbets and cheesecakes or select from one of Shelter’s specialty desserts, which include its signature cashew cake and a refreshing lemon custard tart.
