We woke up early the next morning after our jacuzzi night to catch the buffet breakfast. After breakfast, we freshened up and fixed our things and took a short rest while waiting for our check out time. We checked out from the hotel at 12pm and then headed to the Gateway Mall in Quezon City to have our lunch.
Sumo Sam has just newly opened a branch at the Gateway Mall so Mark and I decided to try it out. The waiting staff greeted us as we entered, ushered us to our seats, and handed us the menu, a huge menu I must say. :p There were a lot of food choices but Mark and I got glued to the ramen section as all of the ramens were labelled as must tries. I think we were still having some hang over from our ramen night, so we decided to have ramen for our lunch. :p
Since we already pigged out the whole weekend we just wanted something light that's why we chose to do away with rice and have ramen instead, but our jaws dropped when our orders were served. We basically got the same orders as what we got during our ramen night, but didn't realize that Sumo Sam's come in huge servings!
I ordered the Tempura Ramen while Mark got the Buta Kakuni Ramen. I wasn't able to take note of the description in the menu but just like in Ajisen Ramen, Sumo Sam's ramen also have the same ingredients and just differs with the main ingredient that come with it--mine had 2 pieces of Tempura while Mark's had thick pork slices.
Each ramen has the same broth, ramen noodles, bean sprouts, corn kernels, carrot strips, hard boiled eggs, violet cabbage, not sure if it's nori seaweeds or fungus, and that white flower-like thingy with pink coil detail. :p I'm not sure of the rest of the ingredients but Mark and I both loved our ramens. The soup was not too oily and had that sweet and salty blend. I actually loved the Buta Kakuni Ramen more because of the generous amount of tender pork slices. :D
We also got an order of the Beef Enoki, golden needle mushrooms wrapped in thin beef slices, which was also delicious. The serving was also huge compared to Ajisen's Enoki Maki, but I prefer Ajisen's since it's a lot easier to eat and the mushrooms still maintained that crunch. Sumo Sam's Beef Enoki was too large for my mouth and the mushrooms were a little overcooked and soggy.
And then for our drinks, I had watermelon shake while Mark got pineapple shake. Everything just came in huge servings and we got to take home a lot of the ramen. :p
And there, this lunch officially ended our long weekend. :) Mark and I enjoyed our lunch, and the long weekend of course, and went home with happy hearts and tummies. :D
