It was our 1 year anniversary a couple weeks ago and we went down to Georgetown for a romantic little dinner. Our friend recommended a special place called Makoto. It's a tiny little place, but it sure is special. First of all, men are required to wear jackets. And they require credit card information for reservations. Fancy!
When we walked in, we were greeted by a very nice Japanese lady who instructed us to take off our shoes and put on a pair of slippers. The wooden chairs are ottomans that can store purses. We got tea and water and even that was served with flair. A strange thing is.... the coasters. If you are Chinese, you may recognize these as money that is burnt for the dead. What?? Why would they use these for coasters?? WEIRD!
But, the food was good. We ordered the chef's special which is $60 for 8-10 courses. I was so shy and wasn't sure if we could take pictures so I missed the first few courses. The first one was awesome looking soup served in a conch shell. Definitely very interesting. This is the main course... Chillean bass.
This was my husband's entree. Very good steak.
Then, we had shabu shabu! It was interesting. I didn't like one of the sauces, but the rest was good. The waitresses cooked the food for us at table side. Look at this mushroom! So cute!
This was another course... sushi! Very fresh fish!
This is the dessert. Some concord grape shaved ice thing. I liked it. Very refreshing.
Everything was good! The service was just so thoughtful and excellent. I like all the small dishes. My husband thought he would still be hungry afterwards, but he wasn't. Of course, I gave him some of my food 'cause it was too much for me. There was some dishes that I didn't like but I am just very picky with raw seafood. It was the first time I had raw scallop and it's just not my thing. It's definitely interesting!! We had a great time and I certainly felt special!
