Sumo Sam @ Greenbelt 3

My college friends and I decided to meet after such a long time. Since most of us work in Makati, we decided to eat dinner here. We wanted Banapple at first but parking is terrible at the Ayala Triangle so we opted for Greenbelt 3 instead. Since I get off at work early, I went to Greenbelt 3 to get some coffee at Figaro. I love their place! It's quiet, cozy, and romantic. Perfect for just sitting alone to think, read, or write.

So anyway. My friend Inna will be going to Boracay soon so she wanted to eat somewhere "healthy".

Thank you Marvin Agustin for Sumo Sam. They have a variety of Japanese and American dishes. They offer great salad and seafood dishes--- but at expensive prices. So if you wanna eat real food from here, it's gonna cost 300 to 500 pesos.

But since I'm super kuripot (English translation: cheap), I got the cheapest rice meal I can get (around P190).  But it was actually good! Their crab sticks were plump and juicy, plus I love garlic rice so it was perfect! You can also choose from three sauces: Mustard, peanut, or teriyaki. I didn't have to use sauce since I already loved the buttery taste.

My other friend bought her Crunchy Tuna Roll (P238) which the manager recommended: (lotsa crunch above!)

And my "Boracay" friend bought salad-- California Maki Salad (P208): (see how they value arrangement; even the shredded seaweeds are neatly placed on top)

I really really wanted to get their Chawan mushi or egg custard (it's a Japanese appetizer that's uncommon to other Japanese restaurants in the Philippines). But it was expensive, around P180. It's good though! Fell in love the first time I tried it way back.

All in all, I enjoyed the experience. We had a long talk, and the waiters were kind enough to refill our water glasses even long after we finished eating.
