mezza9, Grand Hyatt, Macau Nov 2015

Based on the concept of mezza9 in Grand Hyatt Singapore, this mezza9 is an all-round stimulation of the diner’s senses.

Created by the cutting-edge Japanese interior design firm SuperPotato, the eclectic, highly textured 292-seater space is defined by giant, roughly-hewn stone blocks forming counters and lining walls, as well as an eye-catching array of lattice-patterned metal screens.

Other than in the main restaurant, guests can also choose to dine on the outdoor terrace; in one of four semi-private, Japanese wood-lined booths; or in one of three 10- to 12-seater private rooms. One of the private rooms is housed within a ‘wine cellar’, complete with vaulted brick-lined ceiling, wooden barrels and a lounge area for pre- and post-dinner drinks.  This particular private room feels very expensive.

Walking through mezza9 Macau, the diner experiences elaborate counter displays and theatrical show kitchens, which offer all-round stimulation of the diner’s senses. Vibrant colour and texture is provided by floor-to-ceiling displays of fruit and vegetables; oversized bowls of ginger knuckles, garlic bulbs, pumpkins and chestnuts; and giant jars of fresh ingredients such as papaya halves, kumquat and pomelo.

Tables are interspersed between tanks of live lobsters and seafood, glistening ice-filled crustacean stations, sugar cane machines. and shelves of culinary merchandise and utilitarian cooking equipment.

Mezza9 Macau offers different wining and dining experiences under one roof: Macanese; Grill; The Sushi and sashimi bar; The Wok; The Steam Basket; The Deli; The Pâtisserie; The Wine Cellar and Bar.  From one succinct menu, guests can order deep fried soon hock, soy sauce or charcoal grilled mixed meat or arroz de pato de cabidela (Macanese duck rice).

Seafood on Ice—- lobster, black mussels, whelks, Japanese scallops, alaskan snow crab legs

Seafood lovers would do well to order the seafood platter.  Imagine a mountain of seafood including lobster, sweet, delicious Alaskan snow crab legs, mussels, prawns and whelks.  The seafood platter is substantial and most people order it to share it.

Crab cakes, mango and coriander salsa, remoulade sauce

The crab cakes are one of their signature dishes.  The crab cakes are indeed full of crab meat.  I had tried crab cakes in other restaurants where the inside is full of flour filling.

Deep fried soon hock, soy sauce

The fried Soon Hock was amazing.  The execution of this dish is quite difficult.  The fish needs to be fried slowly so that the exterior is crispy while the inside remains moist.  The fish tasted fresh and free from any odours and unpleasant flavours.

Mezza9 is also a good place to try out Macanese dishes.

Portuguese green soup, chorizo

The potato soup is very creamy and combines the use of locally sourced vegetables for crunchiness.

African chicken

The African Chicken has a mild spicy, curry flavour as well as hints of coconut fragrance.

Macanese duck rice

The Duck Rice is savoury and filling.

Mezza9 excels in Portuguese desserts.  They are famous for their Portuguese egg tarts.  It comes to the table warm.  The crust is flaky and the custard is rich with vanilla and egg flavour.  It is a winner.

The Serradura is delicious.  Serradura or Sawdust Pudding is a Portuguese dessert made up of sweetened, vanilla whipped cream and serradura. Apparently, ‘serradura’ translates to ‘sawdust’ in Portuguese. And the ‘sawdust’ in this dessert is actually crushed Tea Biscuits!

With such a large variety of quality cuisine, Mezza9 Macau definitely counts as an exciting destination.

Erb, Bangkok

When it comes to beauty these days, many of us are constantly looking for fast remedies and treatments and thus, traditional remedies are often forgotten about. Erb cosmetics however, combines traditional remedies with the latest laboratory technologies, giving its consumers the best of both worlds.

About the brand

Founded in 2000 by a leading Thai fashion designer, Pattree Bhakditur, Erb pronounced like “herb” in English, focuses on modern-day herbal products using top-notch certified organic ingredients, whilst incorporating traditional Thai wisdom for soothing the body and indulging the soul.

Erb aims to provide their customers with not only the benefits of natural ingredients, but also the sensorial experience that comes with it. While the main purpose of many cosmetic products is to benefit the body, Erb does not forget the importance of bringing pleasure to the soul as well.

Positioning itself as a leading fragrance company in Thailand, Erb established Thailand’s first and only semi-customized perfume bar in 2012. Named the Erb Bespoke Fleurfume Bar, customers are given the creativity and freedom to create their own scent using essential oils from flowers and plants. This means that customers can bring home a one-of-a-kind scent, formulated by themselves.  Erbs signature blends are also used in a wide array of its product, from face, body and hair care to home fragrances.

Origins of the brand

The creation of Erb was inspired by many things. Founder Pattree Bhakditur was first stirred by the beautiful herbal aromas she enjoyed while massaging her grandmother as a child. As she grew up, Pattree continued appreciating the cultured ways of traditional life in Thailand.

Another big influence of the brand comes from time itself. The ladies of the Siamese court culture, in the late 19th-and early 20th-century Thailand, had a knack for turning native ingredients into effective skincare and beautification treatments, which remains wonders in today’s modern-world society.

Nurturing the body and soul

While many of us are guilty of forgetting the goodness that traditional remedies can still bring, Erb does the job for you. After all, the brand’s name is originated from an old Thai expression, “Erb-Im”, which means “radiantly grow”. Such a glow was said to show a woman’s physical well-being as well as her spiritual contentment.

Erb products were certainly created to bring pleasure and satisfaction to customers’ body, mind and spirit through the combination of traditional remedies and modern technologies.
