Dining Out: Sushi Sumo

Tonight Paul and I went out for my early birthday dinner.  I chose my number one favorite food ... sushi.  I've only had sushi once since we moved out of Philadelphia and I've been going crazy.  If I had to name one thing I miss about Philly, it'd be the food.  Specifically some of our favorite sushi bars...Mizu, Shinju, Misso (now out of business...such a shame), Wasabi House, Vic...  I was worried we'd be lacking good sushi here in Delaware but I was wrong!  I discovered that Mizu actually opened a location right here in Newark.  We originally planned to go there, but I decided I wanted to try something new and did a little research and found Sushi Sumo to have pretty good reviews on Yelp.  We were not the least bit disappointed.

We had:
  • Manhattan Roll: red and white tuna, cucumber, avocado, and spicy sauce inside; fresh mango, tobigo, and golden leaf on top.   
  • Paradise Roll: spicy crunchy white tuna inside; tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and avocado on top. (My favorite)
  • Salmon Sashimi: OUT OF THIS WORLD!
  • Yellowtail Roll
  • Philly Roll: cream cheese, scallion, and smoked salmon (Paul's favorite)
  • Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream
Prepare to drool!

Happy Birthday to me!



  1. I never like to type this, but OH MY GOD!!! That salmon looks amazing. What is golden leaf? Never heard of that. It's safe to say I am drooling. Happy [early] Birthday! Glad you had a nice dinner :D

  2. Yeah, the salmon was like butter. Sooo good. Next time you come to visit we'll have to go there to eat... you'd love it!

    Golden leaf is the edible gold stuff (usually flakes) they use on cakes, chocolates, etc. Check out for examples.

    Thanks for the bday wish!

  3. P.S. I couldn't get over the blue glowing thing on the plate. So easily amused hehe.

  4. It certainly looks good but, no, all seafood has to be nuked before it ends up on our plates :)
