This place needs no introduction. Easily one of the best spots in the city to shop, sip and or chill.
We did write about the communal market space and lifestyle brand when they had their highly anticipated pre-opening party back in April. We feel as though as the summer passed and the “hype” died down a little, it’s the perfect time for a review of the restaurant.
We participated in their dining experience which consists of offerings from Taiwan and Cambodia. The place is neat, floor to ceiling windows, white walls, two bars, patio sitting and kitchen sitting by the chef.
We were warmly welcomed by the host, Ayana. We chose to sit in the kitchen, near the chef. There’s just something about sitting in the back, it makes you feel like you own the place, off some incognito sh*t.
They have an exotic collection of brews, wine and spirits. There’s something at the bar to accommodate every taste buds and/or also to complement their flavorful meals.
We tried the Pork Steam Bao and the Oysters on Egg Omelette. The Pork Steam Bao come in twos, soft shell stuff with the best stuff on earth. Definitely a must try if you ever go there. The Oysters on Egg Omelette is both flavorful and rich in textures. Light fluffy eggs with briny oysters along with a sweet-ish sauce. For all the oysters lover out there, this is a guaranteed #tonguasm.
We ordered the Taiwanese Fried Chicken, one of their most popular meals. It usually serves 2-3 people depending on how hungry you are. The meals to share are called large format. The small format aka appetizer or single serving meal are filling although if you’ve a bigger than average appetite you might want to consider ordering a plate or two.
Get sparkling water though for the sole purpose that it cleans your palate. It will allow you to fully enjoy the flavor of each meal you.
In short, you should make visiting Maketto a priority in your life.
