Weekend Food Tripping at: Sumo Sam, Rockwell Branch

A wonderful reminder to people who may think blogging is all about competition, stress and loads of back-biting.  It's definitely not all that!  One of the many rewards I get from blogging is meeting new and true friends that are turning into a huge part of our lives!  

Lisa (one of the writer from So Loverly site) is one of the many few good and genuine friends I've found in cyberworld!  

Our first meet-up was a blast!  Lisa came to the Manila for a visit because her husband works here for a short-term assignment.  On the way to Sentro, I do have this "first date" jitters as I don't know what to expect, you can't blame me, it's a first for us to meet face to face!  But all the worries disappeared the moment we hugged each other.  A wonderful friendship, not only between Lisa and I, but with her husband Alex as well, blossomed! 

Thankfully, the first meeting wasn't the last, we were able to meet up the 2nd time in Manila, 3rd time in Kuala Lumpur and 4th time a week ago (back here in Manila!)  

Lisa and Alex, whether you guys like it or not, looks like God has plans for us --- "To remain couple friends!" :P

It was just a short weekend visit for Lisa, but I appreciate it that she and Alex would spend their quality time with Keith and I!  We met up at Sumo Sam Rockwell and I was a bit worried about the quality of food and service as it wasn't that pleasant on our last visit at the Shangri-La Branch.

Thankfully, the Rockwell branch didn't fail us!  

 California Maki, Miso Soup and Salad

Chicken Teriyaki and  Grilled Shrimps

Pork Katsudon

Salmon Nikkihanna

Beef Tepan

Overall, it was a better service and food quality at Sumo Sam Rockwell branch.  Servings could get bigger though but I'm glad the quality of food was great!  The restaurant is packed on weekends. The bill includes service charge.
