Maketto

Maketto is a 60 seat restaurant that offers a fresh interpretation of Cambodian and Taiwanese cooking inspired by the people and flavors of those respective cultures. With a small retail shop in the front and extra seating upstairs and outside, we went recently for dim sum, served on Sundays only from 11:30am to 4:00pm.  Closest Metro is Union Station.
It was quite busy when we arrived, and while our server was nice he messed up our order and that of a couple tables next to us. It took quite a while for the plates to come out, so we didn't get to eat as much as we liked.  What we did have was pretty good, though.  I just hope they get their service more organized.


We started with the Strange Flavor Eggplant.  Made with blended tofu, eggplant, and Thai flavors, this dish was an Asian baba ghanoush, which is a dish of cooked eggplant mixed with tahini, olive oil and various seasonings.  I enjoyed it very much.


Next, we shared the spicy Pork & Shrimp Shumai.  The Thai peppers were fierce, but the pork and shrimp were quite tender.  This was an addictive dumpling.


Finally, we shared the Maketto Fried Chicken.  It had a sweet honey glaze and the meat was juicy and tender.  Served with freshly toasted baguette, this dish was lovely.

Overall, we enjoyed the food but was disappointed with the service. We would have eaten much more if it didn't take so long, and items we had ordered were not forgotten.
