Macau: Around Macau's Red Market with Chef Antonio Coelho
The Red Market 紅街市大樓 or the Mercado Almirante Lacerda is a wet market in Macau built in 1936. It's called Red Market because it is constructed out of red bricks. We got to explore the Red Market as we followed Chef Antonio Coelho move around the market to purchase the freshest ingredients for our dinner that same night at Antonio Restaurante.
Well, it's a wet market so nothing you can take home from there unless you will be able to cook when you get back home to your hotel or where you're staying. But it's interesting to visit it and walk around.
Outside the main market building is a street market with stalls that sell almost every ingredient in the Chinese kitchen. That I guess means anything and everything!
