Cebu’s media were treated to an intimate dinner that lasted till our pancreas groaned. Located at the ground floor of the Ayala Terraces (Beside TGIF), it brings its unique brand of Japanese and Western fusion cuisine to the discerning palates of the Cebuanos with delectable steak, seafood and sushi dishes that put a premium on quality such as Ebi Tempura which uses Tiger Prawns breaded in real Japanese flour, Beef Teppanyaki and Crunchy Tuna among others.

Everyone was smitten by Marvin Augustin when he arrived! I swear that man is the absolutely modest man in the world – and kind and gwapo and brilliant – I’m gushing, am I?

Raymund Magdaluyo was equally charming as well. He briefed us on Sumo Sam‘s humble beginnings saying that SumoSam opened its first branch in 2005.  In 2006, SumoSam opened another branch in Rockwell with 130 seating capacity then followed by numerous outlets that never failed to satiate the markets demands. To date, SumoSam has a total of 9 branches all over the Philippines. 2 of which are franchises.
