That must have been some pretty tasty gumbo.

A man in Washington, D.C. was so satisfied with his meal at Blue 44 on Monday, that he decided to tip the staff $2000 on top of his $93 bill.

He wrote a note at the bottom of the receipt clarifying that the amount was to be split between three people: $1000 for chef James Turner, and $500 each for the owner Christofer Nardelli and bartender Laura Dally.

His meal consisted of fried chicken, gumbo and some Old Chub Scotch Ale, according to theWashington Post.

And the anonymous patron told Nardelli that he did it because he is “very happy with what we’ve built and that he’s proud to be a customer.”

The restaurant posted a picture of the gumbo on Facebook Thursday, hoping to bring in some new customers thanks to all the publicity.

“The now famous Generosity Gumbo!” they wrote. “Chicken and Andouille sausage gumbo is still on special, so stop by and try a bowl of your own!”

It's actually called Mizu Shingen Mochi but since it's a weird, tasteless gelatin blob it's being marketed to US customers as a "raindrop cake".  It's a common desert in Japan, made out of a seaweed based gelatin called Agar. Since it doesn't taste like anything, it's usually accompanied by a sweet syrup and a soybean powder called kinako. 

You can even learn to make it in this video:
