Here’s another place to go if you long for some good old fashion proper cafe or as we would call it … “Western” food while at Taipa, the artificial, mostly casino filled island of Macao – the restaurant by the name of Common Table.

Common Table is one of the more spacious cafes you can find in Macao, partly because it is located in the newer part of the country on Taipa. The interior decor is a mix of industrial cement walls with tasteful wooden furniture.

The menu here is pretty extensive (find the full menu below)

Starting off with breakfast that’s served from 8 am to 5 pm, you’ll find French toast, egg benedict, various type of walnut toasts, scramble eggs, muesli, or waffles. Prices are from 48 to 78 MOP.

For those who likes it green, they have four different salads on the menu at 78 or 88 MOP. We tried the Taipa Salad with Avocado and Balsamic Vinaigrette (88 MOP), it came with generous amount of greens and half an avocado with really thick vinaigrette which I thought was quite nice.

If you are hungry for a proper meal instead, they do serve some proper Italian dishes, with several choices of pasta, risotto, and even ox tongue. I tried the Forest Mushroom Risotto (88 MOP) from the recommendation of the waitress and thought it was quite a competent dish. The rice was cooked al dante and properly coated with butter/cheese. Rich and satisfying.

As for drinks, Common Table serves the usual espresso based caffeinated drinks, as well as a good selection of organic blend full-leaf tea. If those aren’t your cup of.. tea, there’s always lemon soda, juices, or even fresh milk.

Discuss : KY eats – Common Table, Macao

  1. KY, some people rather eat what ever type in the morning. I hard!y do breakfast but eat sandwiches of BLT.

  2. Gosh! Quite a crowd there! I wonder why it is thus named.

  3. That’s quite a big salad for one! 😉 Good for you, you have fulfilled your entire week’s veggie quota…haha! 😀 Happy Lunar New Year to you and your family 🙂

    hmm cafe must be named after those big two tables, where everyone will share a common table to eat. Or maybe cafe owner is a big fan of American rapper Common LOL. I also noticed alot of cafe in Macau have big long tables, like the one at Wynn.

  5. nice ambiance! a restaurant that looks like this would be pretty popular in almost any city! 😀

  6. Dining at Macao definitely not cheap eh… I think I need to cook my risotto, your mushroom risotto looks yum~
