One tries to eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and of course bacon. We have been exercising regularly. The garden is starting to produce a bounty of vegetables. We just finished our box of organic produce “Dagnabbit”, sometimes you just want to eat some fried food. We went to the food court at the State Fair and were not satisfied. We will have to take a visit to ‘Sumo Grub’.
We drove to the Meathenge lab to pick up the famous Doctor Biggles. We wanted him to come along in case we experienced “Grease Overload Syndrome” and also because he has a neat camera.. Sumo Grub is located across the street from Berkeley High School. This may explain the menu and extremely low prices. Sumo Grub has an extensive list of food that is deep-fried. There are hamburgers and meat/rice dishes and maybe a few salads but the deep fryer gets a hefty work out. We bellied up to the counter and placed an order that possibly will guarantee artery failure.
My death wish list order included deep fried pizza, deep-fried macaroni and cheese, and a deep-fried chicken apple sausage sandwich. Ms. Goofy played it safe by requesting a burger and some killer deep fried onion rings.
The dough of the deep fried pizza was house made. The dough was covered with tomato sauce and cheese then dipped in a panko style crust and submerged in bubbling oil. It was covered in ‘Sumo Sauce which is a mayonnaise/basil/sweet/tart slurry. The deep-fried macaroni and cheese was gooey, oozy, cheesy and crisp all at the same time. It also was garnished with Sumo sauce. The chicken apple sausage was savory, sweet, crunchy and of course covered in Sumo Sauce.
We had not entered the emergency room yet, so we needed to order dessert. Hang on to your hospital gurney because here comes the “Heart Attack”. Deep Fried Pineapple/Coconut Ice Cream, Deep Fried Oreo Cookies, Deep Fried Twinkies, Deep Fried Ding-Dongs were all arranged together and covered with chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Yes you have read that correctly.

How did all this food taste? Sumo Grub is a clean friendly inexpensive restaurant to get your fry on. We were on a mission to eat fried food. Mission accomplished! As soon as I got home , I had to take a nap.. Ms. Goofy would like to give her opinion of Sumo Grub. Sometimes words are not necessary.
