Sumo, Sushi & Bento

I find it amusing how I never thought of blogging about our dining experiences at Sumo, Sushi & Bento. As a family, we dine here regularly and it’s our go-to Japanese restaurant. I always tell people it’s real value for money and they should try it. How I wish there’s Sumo somewhere near my place, I could be there every week.

After our Jebel Hafeet and Green Mubazzarah adventure last UAE National Day, as if we were not tired enough, we went to Town Centre in Jumeirah where there’s a branch of Sumo, Sushi & Bento for dinner. We were quite a big group and everyone just ordered what they wanted.

First, let me share with you the menu.Sumo Sushi & BentoIMG_3343_FotorSumo Sushi & BentoSumo Sushi & BentoSumo Sushi & BentoSumo Sushi & BentoSumo Sushi & BentoSumo Sushi & Bento

Here’s what our group ordered. Being a regular here, I know each and every dish we ordered and tasted them all. No kidding.

We always order the Tom Yum Soup. Very very nice. Must try!Sumo Sushi & Bento

I love this Avocado Maguro which has chunks of tuna and avocado that comes with some kind of peanut sauce.Sumo Sushi & Bento

Hubby’s order everytime. Samurai – shrimp tempura and crabstick roll, lightly topped with salmon, avocado, cream cheese and mayo.Sumo Sushi & Bento

Thinking that we need healthy vegetables, I ordered some vegetable tempura. I know! 🙂Sumo Sushi & Bento

My cousin Shayne didn’t enjoy this Japanese Curry Katsu but I love it! I think it’s an acquired taste. And she was expecting Thai curry flavor. Duh!Sumo Sushi & Bento

Gyoza Ramen. Pan-fried chicken dumplings served over egg noodles in a soy based soup. Biel’s favorite and I always have her leftover. Sumo Sushi & Bento

Tempura Bento which has shrimp and vegetable tempura and chicken teriyaki.Sumo Sushi & Bento

And would you believe that the dishes I just mentioned were only for our family (Gibson, Cole, Biel and me)? Sometimes I’m also amazed of our talent.

The rest of our group ordered similar dishes and here’s some of them.

This is fruity, sweet Japanese inspired desert.

Didn’t get the chance to taste this but it was gone as soon as it hits the table so I guess it’s good.

Their manager, Lloyd, is very nice and welcoming. Go and tell him that Filipina Expat recommended this place. He should give you a discount! 🙂

I have to end this post with a pretty picture of my baby!
