Sofitel Macau @ Ponte 16, Macau

Ponte 16 casino is just down the road from my grandparents' place in Macau, so it was a convenient afternoon tea snack destination one afternoon. 

They had a special macaron afternoon tea at the Sofitel Macau to celebrate their 3rd anniversary.

Cute macaron tree

Unfortunately I couldn't fit in that many macarons, but I had my eyes on the delicious sounding Tea Forte cocktails. 

The asian style high tea looked interesting!

Nibblies to snack on whilst we waited for food - Olives, nut mix and gummi bears

Petit fours that came with a coffee order - macaron, some type of jelly and a chocolate truffle

Lemon lavender Daiquiri - lavender citrus infuser, tequila, fresh lime juice, club soda and syrup.  This was so good!! 

Club sandwich

Waldorf salad - yummy mix of apple, walnuts and blue cheese with salad

A very welcome addition of fries that came with a little jar of ketchup

Ponte 16 is also the home of a Michael Jackson themed cafe with all his memorabilia:

I've been tossing up whether or not to do a side trip to Macau when I go to Hong Kong soon. I think you just made up my mind!
