My mom's job is to send entertainers to Japan and Korea, so ever since I was a kid I basically grew up knowing Japanese cuisines and its culture, which I have grown accustomed to.
It was really nice that there are more Japanese restaurants since me and my family eat out in these kinds of restaurants. Japanese food culture is actually getting some hype here in the Philippines since more people are more curious in eating new cuisines.
I am definitely one of those. And since I grew up knowing a lot about Japanese culture it was really nice that I was able to attend the opening of Sumo Sam here at Gateway in Cubao yesterday.
SumoSam is one of the restaurants that showcases Japanese-American inspired cuisines. Their best sellers are their Steaks, Seafood and sushi. This is a definite food fest for every foodie out there.

Their drinks are also great. When I arrived at the venue, I was asked if I wanted red or green iced tea. The difference between the two besides their color is that the red iced tea is sweeter than the green iced tea. While the green iced tea has a more citrus taste. Both are refreshing if you ask me but I would prefer the green iced tea because I like citrus drinks.
There were several other food that we've eaten during the event. I will just post another more detailed version of each cuisine.But for now here are their pictures.
