Satisfy your Hunger with Hungry Sumo

by - Monday, November 16, 2015

They say that Friday the 13th brings bad luck and with delayed salaries and heavy traffic, I almost believed it to be true. Thankfully, there was one silver lining to an otherwise crazy day and that is no other than Hungry Sumo.

I first knew about Hungry Sumo when Ame Ang, the owner, posted an invite for a blogger’s event on one of the blogger groups I’m in. I must say I got curious so when I was chosen to be part of the event, I didn’t hesitate at all.  And I’m glad I did. Read on to know more.

Hungry Sumo: Must-try Hole-in-the-Wall Restaurant
Hungry Sumo is Taiwanese Mix restaurant located at N.S Amoranto (Retiro) cor Banawe St. If you’re coming from Quezon Ave., you can get off at McDonald’s Banawe and ride a jeep  then get off at the building where Papa John’s and Army Navy. Walk a bit and you’ll find this quaint and cozy restaurant on the right side.

Why is it called Hungry Sumo? It’s because they serve sumo-sized meals that will satisfy your hunger. Their dishes are a unique blend of Taiwanese and Filipino flavors, and are reminiscent of street foods in Taiwan.

Hungry Sumo offers a wide range of dishes from rice meals to sandwiches and shakes. And I was lucky to get to try some of their delicious dishes. Here are the pictures and my thoughts on their dishes:
  • Fried fish fillet poppers – Not fond of fish? You’ll change your mind if you get a taste of this dish. This dish is crispy on the outside yet tender and juicy on the inside plus its salty taste makes it an addicting appetizer.

  • Chicken Steak Curry – I love curry so it’s a no-brainer that I love this dish. Unlike typical fried chicken steak, Hungry Sumo’s chicken steak is very tender, juicy and flavorful even without the breading. The owner told us that the secret is marinating the meat overnight. Thumbs up!

  •  Pork and Wanton Egg Noodles – This dish is perfect for rainy and cold weather. It is not only delicious; it’s also packed with ingredients (wanton, pork, corn and carrots) which makes it very filling. It’s a bit sweet, though but the pork and wanton kinda balances it out so it’s all good.

  • Chicken Steak Sandwich - This is not your ordinary sandwich/burger. Hungry Sumo’s Chicken steak sandwich is flavorful and a bit spicy. The sauce is homegrown and can only be found only at Hungry Sumo.

  • Shakes (Taro, Mocha and Dark Chocolate) – How can shakes be thick, sweet and refreshing without being overwhelming? That’s the Hungry Sumo secret. Whatever flavor you choose, you won’t regret it because it’s just that good. This is a definite must-try!

Apart from the cozy ambience and delicious dishes, Hungry Sumo offers good customer service. They don’t have minimum delivery order especially if it’s within the area. They also accept packed lunches for events, birthdays and other occasion. Could you imagine that they once delivered packed lunch in Bulacan? Cool, huh?
