Found a new restaurant in the Metro that serves unlimited barbeque and the best part is it’s Japanese! Here at SM North EDSA North Towers, SUMO NIKU serves unlimited Japanese yakiniku or grilled meat for almost the same price as other BBQ joints around Manila!
Barbeque Meat Variants
They offer unlimited Japanese yakiniku served with unlimited Japanese rice, side dishes, soup and salad!
- SIX (6) kinds of PORK(Black Pepper Pork, Sesame Pork, Spicy pork belly with teriyaki sauce, Pork belly thin, Pork belly with teriyaki sauce, and Pork tenderloin)
- FOUR (4) kinds of BEEF (U.S.Premium beef, Wagyu Beef, U.S. Premium Beef with teriyaki sauce, and U.S. Marinated Beef), and
- TWO (2) kinds of CHICKEN(Teriyaki and Spicy chicken variants)
Sumo Niku Side Dishes
They offer various side dishes as well. However during our stay, some of the side dishes being offered were unavailable, so we didn’t get to have the french fries, fried dumplings and fried crab meat that were initially placed on their menu. Other side dishes that were present, nonetheless, were the classic lettuce, kimchi, okra, cucumber, potatoes, and seaweed. Of course, rice is there as a staple!
Our Sumo Niku Experience
Turnover-wise, we got our seats faster than the typical eat-all-you-can bbq joints with long waiting lines, so that was a relief! I guess the timing was also crucial since we got there a couple of minutes earlier than the usual “dinner rush hour”, haha.
Initially, we were told to place our yakiniku order 2 variants at a time, so we did. The meat serving per plate was just 2 slices per plate so we were slightly disappointed. Although I could not blame them for I guessed that they were just trying to prevent wasteful discard of meat served due to over-refilling or something along that line…. But as “maparaan” / eager as we are as Filipinos, *PRO TIP* the moment our orders had been served, we just placed the succeeding yakiniku plate orders so we did not have to wait much for the refill! We just gauge our gastric capacities once in a while, so we would not over-refill! Haha.
Taste-wise, their meat is delicious! Every bite was bursting happiness for my tastebuds. We had to cut the meat in smaller chunks, so the plate we initially had containing 2 beef slices, for instance, happened to had served us well (2 adults and 1 kid with a big appetite). The moment we finished the 2 plates, our second order had been served since we “pre-ordered” while grilling.
Sumo Niku seems to be from the same company as Yakimix as I have noticed that some of their servers were wearing the Yakimix uniform. The servers during our time were attentive. Even the manager was working double time to serve and even adjust the grilling temperature for us. So, kudos for their effort and service!
