Sumo Sam 2015 Menu
What could be more appetizing than trying out not just 5, not just 10, but 15 mouth-watering dishes? Without any further ado, let the Japanese gastronomical fun begin!
Sumo Sam came up with 3 appetizers that’ll not just entice your appetite, but become a sumptuous feast for your eyes, as well. They are as beautifully crafted and designed as delicious as they look.
The first item on the list is the Sumo Roll. The Sumo Roll ris a Japanese maki topped with crunchy batter and little fried shrimps. The fried, crunchy batter complements the soft texture of the maki coming up with a combination of 2 opposites.
Next is the Assorted Sushi consisting of salmon, shrimp, squid, and tuna, all of which are served fresh on top of rice. Blowing, according to Sumo Sam’s Chef Roy, is the new way of preparing the sushi. The rice underneath is cooked to perfection and seasoned in such a way that it complements the natural flavors of the sushi well.
(Ebi Chizu Aburi)
Ebi Chizu Aburi is the cheese-topped shrimp sushi maki placed on top of seasoned rice. The cheese gives off a perfect twist to the sushi, creating a flavorful fusion of the cheese’s saltiness and the shrimp sushi’s almost sweet taste.
(Daikon Unagi Maki)
Daikon Unagi Maki is next on the list and it is not your ordinary maki wrapped in seaweed wrapper, but a thinly sliced radish served as the outermost layer of the maki. The sour mango taste and the fresh ebi filling of the maki seasoned with a little bit of spice gives a tangy burst with every mouthful. Once again, the crunchy texture of the radish gives a twist to the regular overall smooth texture of the traditional maki.
The Unagi Set involves broiled Japanese eel with a sweet sauce sprinkled with green onions, topped on rice and served with achingko, tamago edamane and misou soup.
(Rock Shrimp Tempura: Sweet)
(Rock Shrimp Tempura: Spicy)
The Rock Shrimp Tempura offering of Sumo Sam comes in 2 flavors: sweet and spicy. This is usually served with sprinkled green onions. A perfect version of tempura wherein the shrimp filling is half-cooked unlike the regular deep fried tempura. The sauce complements well with the crunchy batter making the dish moist and being offered in 2 flavors gives the customers more options to choose from.
For the gyoza lovers, Sumo Sam’s new offer is the Edamane Gyoza; the Japanese soybean is included in the gyoza filling itself. The gyoza is cooked in a way that the wrapper perfectly sticks onto the filling, making it easier to eat, especially if one uses chopsticks.
