“It's okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

I had the yakisoba Burger. It was warm and tasty with contrast of textures , a light snack to keep you going during your visit at the ruins. The black garlic ice cream was forgettable. It was like a mocha ice cream with one small back garlic at the center, nothing really spectacular or new in the taste. Plus the ice cream had ice crystals from freezer burn. This place should improve on their ice cream, though I haven't tried the rest of the selection. The only really great thing about this place is its friendly owner.

“Disappointing!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

The choice of food is very limited. It's expensive. The shop is crowded. It can only serve around 6 people. It's close to the centre of attraction. I taste durian pudding. It's only durian mixed with cream. It doesn't involve any culinary skill.

We are sorry you are disappointed about food selection and place been crowded all the time.
Since we are "Sweet's Shoppe" not a restaurant we do not offer many foods but few food we offer is very popular snack in Japan that you can't find it anywhere else in Macau.

"Durian Queen Parfait" (Not Pudding) we make here is using homemade Durian Cream with layer of fresh Durian and we believe simple is the best way to taste ingredients like Durian.

McPherson's Sweet's Shoppe is not a Gourmet Restaurant but we offer handmade sweet's and casual Japanese Snacks with Love.

Thank you for your review.

“New and Fresh Japanese snacks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

I've been walking around Sao Paulo for almost an hour. Tired and exhausted, i look around and spotted a rather cute durain mascot. With his warm and friendly guidance, i arrived to a small shop named MchPhersons. The tiny shop gives a family sense of atmosphere which is great. The food was amazing. Durian ice cream was one of the greatest spotlight of the day, with it's richness in durian flavor, durian lovers will not be disappointed. Other japanese snacks such as the yakisoba sandwich and japanese pizza was fantastic. It was very new to me since there isn't much japanese snack stand available in Macau. With great food and service, this is a highly recommended place to stop by in Macau.

“Excellent Food, Great Vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

McPherson's Japanese treats and ice cream are wonderful. I especially recommend the Yakisoba sandwich which is my personal favorite packed full of flavor as a quick treat or part of a large lunch. I've come to the restaurant several times and it has quickly become my weekend lunch spot. The variety of specials ensures you can have something different every day you go, and the standard menu items never fail to impress.

I love the cheesecake ice cream, black garlic bread, or even just snacking on some black garlic. As a foreigner I can't quite get my taste buds to accept the Durian ice cream, but have watched it fly off the shelf to customers while I enjoy my lunch.

I also enjoy the staff, Sayaka the owner is fun and interesting. When she can get out of the kitchen and we always have a nice chat. They remember my name, how I like my food, and really make me feel like a regular.

The restaurant is centrally located quite close to St. Paul's Ruins and is worth a quick stop while you are seeing the city.

“Great different japanese food in Macau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

Lovely shop with great food and excellent service. Sayaka is the lovely owner of this cozy shop and treat every costumer very well. I totally recomend it for everyone visiting Macau. You won't regret it. Ask for the "japanese pizza" and the "yakisoba sandwich", they are delicious!
