Have you heard of Maketto? I have! And heard about it and heard about it. But no one would go with me! So finally one of my best friends finally visited me and we went! It’s definitely a fusion of Asian cuisines.
It’s a bit of an interesting layout, the first thing you see are clothes for sale. Behind that is the cafe. They have a pastry cafe upstairs too. We were greeted by employees as soon as we walked in and they explained everything to us. There’s even a little courtyard outside where you can sit!
We decided to get 3 dishes and share to check things out. First up, there’s the spicy beef & rice bowl! Spicy, beefy and did I mention my mouth was on fire????
Then there was the beautiful pork noodle soup! It was delicious! I think the picture speaks for itself.
Lastly, we tried the braised pork steamed bar. They were definitely kind of sweet. Not what I was expecting at all. It was good, but in a definitely not traditional Chinese pork steamed bar kind of way. So if you’re expecting traditional, don’t come here! But if you want good food that’s on a different level, come right on over!
It was definitely a place where my friend and I could catch up and hang out. We grab some drinks with the food and just chatted the afternoon away. Definitely a place to check out!
