Sumo Sam, what’s new with the Japanese wrestler

When restaurateur Carlo Lorenzana calls, there must be something new with one of his restaurants to try.

True enough, he wanted to meet at Sumo Sam in Abreeza Mall to share the what’s happening at the Japanese-inspired restaurant.

“If you’ve noticed, we made the place brighter. This is one of the changes we have planned for Sumo Sam. More will come soon,” said Carlo.

“But what I’m most excited about is our new menu. We are changing it soon. With the new look of the menu will come new dishes while retaining our bestsellers,” he said.
