As a pescatarian, I find that Japanese restaurants are the best in serving dishes that delight all the senses. Japanese cuisine is perfect for pescatarians, and my personal favourite is the Sumo Sushi & Bento outlets that serve a wide range of dishes suitable for us. This includes refreshing salads, Sushi Sandwiches, Poke Bowls, curated bento meals, sushi plates, sashimi dishes, tempura and of course the ramen bowls.
I spent an evening at the Town Centre outlet of Sumo Sushi & Bento and found the menu extensive with affordable dishes and healthy options that were made with fresh ingredients to please different palates, including meat eaters.
The dishes at Sumo Sushi & Bento came out better than most similar restaurants because of their clean flavors and generous use of vegetables. As I shared my meal with friends who had different dietary preferences, we had ample choice of vegetarian dishes, rice, noodles, seafood and meat-based dishes.
My companions raved about the crispy karai and kushiyaki chicken during our starters while I enjoyed the calamari rings and Rock N Roll shrimps. For mains, I shared my Bento with tuna sashimi, tuna nigiri, tuna rolls and a poke garden salad with my fellow diners who meanwhile loved the gyoza ramen, sushi sandwiches, BBQ beef bento and noodle dishes.
Dessert is a must at Sumo Sushi & Bento and we highly recommend tempura ice cream (Fried vanilla ice cream in crispy panko shell), Ube-licious (Sumo’s unique ube ice cream served with shaved coconut and a selection of mochi in assorted flavours (creamy gourmet ice cream wrapped in a sweetened rice confection).
Sumo Sushi & Bento has a wide range of drinks one can order with the meal. I enjoyed the ginger cooler which is a refreshing drink made with fresh ginger and mint leaves.
The vibe at the family friendly Sumo Sushi & Bento may be casual but the food is premium and high end in both quality and taste. The secret is the use of fresh ingredients, style of cooking and the impeccable service from the staff.
