The ladies of my book club met at the Sumo House, Vero Beach, Florida, to discuss last months book. Our book club is assigned a monthly book to read and then meet to discuss it. Some of us are only in it for the food: we do not judge. I had wanted to try Sumo House as I had heard good things about the prices and food quality.
Delicious Asian Cuisine at the Vero Beach Sumo House Restaurant
We arrived at the restaurant and were given a semi-private table to conduct our “business”. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Sumo House has a Japanese Lunch Box and Thai lunch menu and the largest sushi selection in Vero Beach. The menu is packed with many choices and they give nice descriptions of the foods offered. Sumo also offer one of my favorite things: bento boxes.
The choices we made were: Chicken Teriyaki, Red Curry Chicken, Hot Curry Basil Chicken, Wahoo Miso Salad, and Salmon Roll. Our lunch choices included with Miso soup, a Thai spring roll, and steamed white rice. Brown rice is available for an additional charge.
Our soup arrived first and though not usually something I really desire, the richness of this broth was delicious. I enjoyed every last drop. Our plates arrived and we were ready to dig in. I love curry dishes so it is typical for me to have ordered the red chicken curry and I hit the jackpot. The dish was rich and the spice level just right, with tasty bamboo shoots, red pepper strips, and juicy pineapple chunks.
Rich and Dreamy Thai Dishes
The coconut milk and Thai curry paste base was absolutely perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal. The little spring roll & dipping sauce that was included was also yummy. Portion sizes were plentiful, though not wasteful. Everyone’s dishes looked wonderful as well and next time I may venture out and choose the salmon roll.
A member of our book club (the one that chose this venue) eats at Sumo House quite often and uses them for take-out as well. I brought home a menu and plan to try them out again in the near future. It appears they also offer live music on the weekends so be sure to check out their calendar for that bonus. I recommend a visit to the Sumo House because of the quality and taste of the dishes, the service, and lastly because it was the best lunch I have had in Vero Beach that was under $12. My entire bill for the lunch and a canned beverage was $10.12. That is a big thumbs up in my book.
