The minute I saw this Japanese restaurant yesterday at the upper ground floor of Southmall, I wanted to try it right away. The price is just the same with restaurants offering unlimited Samgyupsal.
What’s new with Sumo Niku is that they have this variant of beef rolled in Enoki mushroom and it will be a sure winner for those mushroom lovers. The sweetness of enoki mushroom added flavor to the beef. Another something to look forward is their cheese dip. Cheese dip is getting popular with Samgyupsal restos but the ones I’ve tried provide quick melt cheese and evaporated milk. But here in Sumo Niku, they are providing mozzarella cheese. Yes, you read it right. Mozzarella cheese! I think you should sprinkle it on top of the meat than letting it melt in the container. It tends to harden if it stayed longer in the heat. They also have miso soup with bits of seaweed and tofu. Their side dishes are cucumber, sweet potato, sweet corn kernels, steamed egg (but seems to be unavailable when we visit), kimchi, cheese balls, etc.
The quality of Sumo Niku’s meats are great. They both look and taste fresh. For their price of Php 499, you will get to enjoy beef, pork and chicken. I didn’t try their chicken as we really helped ourselves with all the beef and some of the pork variants. It was a great dining experience and I am surely be coming back. I definitely recommend this new dining place in Southmall. Must try! 🙂
Below are some of the photos we had. Enjoy!
P.S. You will enjoy more if you go to Sumo Niku and try it for yourself. 😀
