My love of Japanese food starts from the legendary Japanese restaurant in Dubai , Sumo Sushi & Bento .To be plain -spoken this is the first time i have tried Japanese food except for Sushi , my world of Japanese food was limited only to sushi ( which i’m not a great fan , cannot handle the raw fish ), i never knew Japanese cuisine is way beyond Sushi until i visited this Family dining restaurant ‘Sumo Sushi & Bento’ at Dubai near to Mercato Mall . This spacious restaurant is conveniently located on the ground floor with open roof enough to accommodate a large crowd.
I love the menu here , they have a wide variety of options to choose from – Bento boxes , noodles,drinks,rice,rolls ,desserts,shakes and much more .
Appetizers, we had ‘WAGYU STEAK’, enoki and baby asparagus rolled into a thin layer of juicy wagyu steak drizzled with special wagyu sauce , for me it’s the first i have tried wagyu , though the first bite was not welcoming for my buds but after 2-3 bites my buds have swiftly picked up the taste and I have emptied most of the wagyus in no time , guys if you want to have a different try ;opt for this . Cost 45 AED.
Drinks , when coming to drinks i always love to choose vibrant colors , feel i am babyish when coming to this , we had Sumo special ‘SUMOJITO ‘, intensely fresh tasting with all the mint and lime.Inspired by traditional Mojito .A totally exhilarating drink .Cost 16 AED.
Then for Main we had ‘Sumo special fried rice’ with shrimp ,chicken and vegetable , i should say its fine but couldn’t find any specialty from a normal fried rice that we conventionally have however they had generous drops of shrimps and chicken in it .
Cost :32 AED
For the Dessert we had ‘ Island Dreams Dessert Maki ‘ , this sweet dish is made with blackened sushi rice filled with fruits and dipping sauce, i felt this dish is not on top-spot on my buds (may be i’m not a fanatic of sushi , by adding some more love to the dish could do much better ), moreover its purely on how your taste buds are .Cost 35 AED.
As always ,its glorious to try new food and new people 🙂
See you in my next food journey 🙂
MY VERDICT :
