Fusion Cuisine @ Smile House 笑面府 (Macau)

I was quite excited when my friends decided to go to an Italian/French/Western fusion restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of Macau’s ritzy area. The suggestion came from a “picky eater” so I was quite hopeful what Smile House could offer me. Smile House is a very small family-run restaurant with a seating capcity … Continue reading
