As an exchange student in 1998 in Oklahoma City, my host family’s weekend ritual involved attending Sunday mass, followed by a large dim sum brunch. Dim sum, a popular style of Chinese cuisine composed of bite-sized dishes, remained one of my favorite meals when I entered college and moved into my own place.

I decided to relive my dim sum-eating days with a visit to Makan Makan — a dim sum restaurant located inside the upscale Coco Garden Resort in Okinawa’s Uruma City.

My companions and I were immediately drawn to the restaurant’s beautiful location, which offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean alongside the hotel’s lush garden and pool. Makan Makan’s interior decor is equally appealing, featuring gorgeous Asian wood furniture and Okinawan Ryukyu glassware on every table.

Makan Makan offers an all-you-can-eat dining plan, which varies in price depending on the time of day and day of the week. Lunch plans start at 2,500 yen for adults (or about $23.50) and 1,250 for children, while dinner plans start at 3,800 yen for adults and 1,900 for children. The restaurant serves a small selection of specialty dishes during both the lunch and dinner services — but, due to their limited availability, guests are allowed just one order per person of these items.
