After watching Poltergeist, my friends and I chose to eat at Sumo Sam because all of us haven’t tried eating there. Maybe few of us know that this Japanese restaurant is owned by Marvin Agustin and I really wonder why his restaurants mostly offer Japanese cuisine.
Anyway, Sumo Sam’s ambience is quite dim with hint of Japan’s work of art just like the ceiling on the photo below.
The waiter approached us and took our order and we have noticed that their waiters have their hair dyed and were all slim; I guess they were pegging the common Japanese men.
Jeck and I ordered under Sumo Donburi. Donburi or “bowl” is a popular Japanese dish where the cooked rice is topped with your choice of viands. Jeck ordered Katsudon (P268) and chose porkloin.
Meanwhile, I ordered Gyudon (P298) because our family rarely cooks beef at house so I felt like eating beef that day. Of course, it is served with raw egg. This sweet dish with a flavor of soy sauce filled my hungry tummy.
He also ordered Spicy Tuna Salad (P218). I guess he ordered something leafy because he has eaten a lot of pop corn when we watched the movie. Derek and Jeck also had eaten a lot of food while they were waiting for me to arrive. Sure, I was late. I never really changed.
The very first thing that I told to my friends about Sumo Sam is their humungous servings so if you wanted to eat really heavy, Sumo Sam won’t fail. I’m happy with my food and so my pocket because I find it budget-friendly. The servers are prompt even when they got a very busy evening and they also look dapper.
