Good eats, delish cocktails, and great company? Uh, it really doesn’t get much better than that. My blogger bestie (La Belle Mel) and I hit up Maketto to celebrate Infatuation’s DC launch. They partnered up with American Express Gold for the occasion, and the event was Night Market themed with stalls placed all over the space. The dishes presented showcased the following five major flavors in Asian cuisine: hot, sour, salty, sweet, and bitter, and they had awesome beverage pairings that reflected similar tasting notes.
Everything was absolutely delish, but the Jja Jang Myun was by far my favorite. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how nomtastic it was. The chef made it fresh in a wok right in front of my eyes, and it was like a flavor explosion – just the right amount of spicy with tons of pork and greens. I don’t know if you guys have ever been to Maketto, but their space is sick. It’s super hip – think cafe, store, and restaurant all fused into one – so if you’re into cool shops (which we all are, let’s be real), make sure to check this joint out.
