The sushi almost never sleeps
Late-night sushi? It's at Makimono.
The operators of Federal Way's newest Japanese restaurant figure there are
enough people out and about to stay open until the wee hours with its 12 varities
of sushi plus teriyaki and Chinese dishes.
The lunch trade starts at 11 a.m. Assorted nightowls, including people
starting or ending their work days or at the end of an evening out, can show
up later much later. Dinner is served until midnight Monday through Thursday and on Sunday, and until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Owner John Choi opened Makimono Sept. 19 at 1703 S. 324th St. His brother, Jung Choi, is one of the chefs when he isn't
at his own Japanese restaurant, Kaihana, in Des Moines.
A large, steadily increasing oriental population in and around Federal Way
made Makimono seem like a good idea, said John Choi, a native of Korea who
lived in Texas and Missouri before moving here.
Despite the Asian roots, Makimono's dishes are prepared with American tastes
in mind, Choi said. Tuna, salmon, shrimp, whitefish and eel are among the
dozen types of sushi. Also on the menu are spring rolls, fried rice and miso
soup, among other items. Customers, especially sushi fans, have been
impressed. Asked independently, many have given the restaurant a thumbs-up.
Besides non-alcohol beverages, wine, whisky and beer, including Asian brands,
are available to go with the food.
