Last week, we embarked on not one, but three food trips at the SM City Manila with the newest restaurants – SumoSam’s Tokyo Grill, Kung Fu Kitchen and Blackbeard’s Seafood Island. My Asian food trip that Sunday definitely tickled my Pinoy taste buds.
|Tokyo Grill has a cozy feel in it|
We started at SumoSam’s Tokyo Grill, where Japanese fusion meets affordability. Their most popular offerings are the Japanese Bibimpap and Japas (Japanese small plates), Tokyo Grill Nachos and Jap Pao (sweetened slow cooked pork) fried Maki rolls and most popular of them all - the Sizzling Bento. I personally love the platter where they serve grilled dishes with iced tea and lemonade.

Another one of my favorites is the Omuudon. That really made me feel as if Im in Japan! The Beef Teppan and the Fried Spicy California Maki are the ones you shouldn’t miss. Relaxing, fun-friendly, these pretty much define Tokyo Grill. If you’re looking for a place to hang out with your friends, visit them now.
|Kung Fu Kitchen... Literally.|
After our Japanese adventure, we went to Kung Fu Kitchen or KFK for delectable and modern Chinese dining. Mixing two elements – fresh and fast, KFK features their Feasts of Fury, from Chinese Bento to affordable dumplings and even milk teas to boot. During the press conference, Marvin Agustin, one of the part owners of KFK said that they put all his favorites in this restaurant. He even performed a demo on how to munch their Xiao Long Bao, a Chinese favorite.

SM Manila provides its first home for the Kung Fu Kitchen. The interior of the branch is very relaxed and chic. One tip, make sure to look at the ceiling, and see the very cool light fixtures. For more of their menu, I will post a separate blog for it, as we have experienced their very affordable and delicious offerings.
|Seafood Island has that BEACH feel :)|
Last but definitely not the least, attack and be very satisfied with the boodle feast at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island (just beside Kung Fu Kitchen). This is best enjoyed with friends with a very big appetite. Eat with gusto on banana leaves and bond with your companions on this fiesta-inspired restaurant.

They’re famous with the I am Ninoy(Dagupan) Boodle Feast, the best of the Philippine islands has to offer, a mix of meat, seafood and other grilled goodies. Deep-fried boneless bangus, pork BBQ, steamed white shrimps, grilled tahong, okra, talbos ng kamote, green mango, crispy liempo and bagoong rice will surely be a feast to remember with friends and family appreciating the best of the Filipino dishes in Dagupan Boodle Feast. You can also bring in your balikbayan friends because this is a foodie adventure that they will sure to remember.
