Sopa de lacassá
The soup has its roots in Malacca, and is believed to be an evolution of Laksa soup from Peranakan cuisine. The word Lacassá is noted to be a Macanese term for vermicelli, with roots in Indian languages.
As it contains no meat, Lacassá Soup is traditionally consumed on Christmas Eve, historically a day of abstinence for Catholic faithfuls. Lacassá Soup is also featured in a proper Cha Gordo, a social event that has been likened to high tea, and features multiple dishes.
