Makoto | August 22, 2008

We went to Makoto for an early birthday dinner for the BF last night. This restaurant requires a credit card to make a reservation, dress code that is strictly enforced, and all patrons to wear their provided slippers upon entry. We ordered the 10 course chef’s dinner – $60 per person. The food makes it a very worthwhile experience as you can see from the pictures (click to see them full size). The sashimi course is missing from the gallery because I ate it before I remembered to take a picture, yes I’m a pig! It was 3 pieces of tuna, 2 pieces of yellowtail, and 2 pieces of flounder, in case you’re curious.

We also tried the warm poison fish fin sake – it numbs your tongue a little so don’t have too much 😉

I recommend going to this authentic Japanese restaurant for special occasions since it’s a little pricey. The wait staff is extremely attentive and pleasant, which makes for a delightful dining experience!
