Chow down on sushi for one flat fee — Photo courtesy of LoozrboySo in America, sushi restaurants and buffets come a dime a dozen. So what's the big deal about one opening in Rome? For starters, only until recently just finding a sushi restaurant, let alone a good one, proved to be challenging. When the raw Japanese cuisine first touched down in Rome, locals weren't exactly keen on the idea. Until good restaurants like Makoto opened up in the Tiburtina district, Romans started to take notice.
So what makes Makoto so special? Granted, it wasn't the first sushi restaurant to squeeze their way into Italians' hearts. No, it wasn't. Though, it is one of the first sushi restaurants where you can eat all you want and you pay one flat fee.
No, we're not talking buffet style. Everything here is fresh and made to order right on the spot. You won't have to count your makis or your temakis to count how much your bill is going to add up to. The nice part here is you can eat as much as you want for dinner for just 19 euro not including drinks or dessert. Wanna save a buck or two? Check out Makoto for lunchtime, where the sushi and other grilled Japanese delicacies will set you back just 15 euro. Buoonoooo. Though, word to the wise. Make sure not to leave any rolls or extra scraps on your plate, as they will add on an extra surcharge to your bill.
