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 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 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.
