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 of about 40 persons split into two rooms. The owner-wife, a fashionably dressed petite lady, recommends daily specials, which varies according to what is in season while the chef-husband cooks in the kitchen. All their food is cooked/tossed with olive oil. There are plenty of vegetables and fruits on their menu and salads are a major feature in Smile House.
Because the food varies, some of the dishes we had were specials of the day and not printed on the menu. Descriptions and names of dishes during the introduction by the lady owner were also communicated in Cantonese so I am having trouble now naming dishes but I will try my best to offer as much as I can remember.
