Sumo Sam and Cerealicious: Jap VS. Cereals/Crepes.

If there was a battle between Jap and Cereals/Crepes which I tasted last Saturday, then definitely the winner is JAP!


My mom was craving for Japanese food during her birthday but I already bought a voucher so she had to settle for Filipino food...I was glad she did like it!


So she had another celebration the next day which was my sister's treat! She finally had her cravings satisfied at SUMO SAM. This restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of Shangri-La Mall, Mandaluyong cor EDSA. 
While waiting, they served hot green tea and I really like the ambiance and design of the resto because it really does look Japanese with mini waterfalls and bamboos. 


The Victory Float was first served which has a nice presentation. It is a selection of sushi and sashimi. Sooo love it! Really fresh and authentic...no fake jap rice and yucky raw fish.  
My mom ordered tempura and it also tastes good. More prawns and less batter unlike those sold in fast food restos.
The sushi rolls are actually filling so I just ate two pieces of tempura which is enough to satisfy me. Everything is great at SUMO SAM except for the price. It is kinda expensive, the Victory Float costs around 858 and the Ebi Tempura costs around 368. Actually each meal is good enough for two so the price is still reasonable.

My kid was not able to eat much because he had to poop. HAHAHA. So I decided to buy something for him at Cerealicious. It is located near the parking entrance so this stall is not that visible to the public.



I really like the design..so cute which would appeal to kids. Even the chairs and tables suit the theme.

My niece ordered cereals with ice cream on top..i forgot the name of it and didn't taste it so not sure if it's good or not..but she is a big cereal fan so i'm sure she liked it a lot. For the price of P80, not sure if it is worth it. 
I decided to order crepe with mangoes and vanilla ice cream of my little boy because I know he loves mangoes. I was actually disappointed with it. The crepe is tough and the mangoes are not that ripe. Maybe I just expect too much cos I have tasted the best crepes and that is at Cafe Breton. For the price of P120, it sure is not worth it!
Another thing! The plastic fork is brittle and easily breaks so not good quality. 
Maybe cereals is their forte and I suggest, they just stick with that. 
Here is their website if you want to check them out.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
