WHEN IN MANILA and you’re looking for a cool Japanese restaurant, visit SUMOSAM GILMORE.
We got to hang out at SUMOSAM GILMORE as they celebrated their grand opening day in Greenhills.
MRS. ANGEL PELAYO-TY (2nd from left, picture above) is the owner of this FIRST franchise of SUMOSAM in Metro Manila.
MR. MARVIN AGUSTIN (4th from left, picture above) was present in the celebration, as well as some bloggers, head CHEF BENJAMIN “BITOY” GONZALES and SUMOSAM himself!

Mr. Agustin and his friends, Ricardo Laudico and Raymund Magdaluyo, opened the first SUMOSAM branch in Shangri-La Plaza last December 2005; and, In just a span of 6 years, SUMOSAM has multiplied to 10 branches nationwide – including Cebu and Davao! Kudos to the whole SUMOSAM TEAM for their success!
Similar to the other SUMOSAM outlets, this branch offers a very cheerful and “hip” mood. The comfortable chairs and upbeat music are also a great addition to the ambiance. It is a place to hang out and share an exquisite Japanese meal together with friends and family.
SUMOSAM GILMORE offers a special menu that is only available at this newest branch (for now).
The Yokozuna Bento Boxes are available during weekdays from 11 AM to 2 PM only.
I tried the SAMURAI’s CHOICE Yokozuna BENTO BOX (Php 488) and it was huge!
The serving portion is good enough for two people to share. Just order another cup of rice!
The sashimis were so fresh that until now, I am still craving for more!
The DORY TEPPAN was tasty with the fried garlic topping. I liked how they served it fried but not oily.
The CHICKEN TERIYAKI was superb! I am not a fan of teriyakis because the sauce is usually too sweet for me, but SUMOSAM’s chicken teriyaki was surprisingly good, having just the right amount of sweetness that complimented the chicken meat.
The YASAI ITAME was sauteed lightly so it still had that crunchy texture with a hint of buttery taste. I am really impressed on how they cooked and served their food. Even the BEEF YAKINIKU was NOT OILY, served well-done but still juicy and tender.
WHEN IN MANILA, try out SUMOSAM GILMORE for all your Japanese food cravings.
