Have you been to Japan before? Japan is proly one of my dream countries beside United States. Why? I want to be the first to experience sunlight, country full with techy gadgets, Kawaii Japanese girls and not to forget their sushi too.. !
Why want to go so far to experience sushi when we have plenty of restaurants here that serve pretty decent sushi. Sushi Zanmai is one of it. Every single outlet has almost similar interior and this Sunway branch has no exception too.
Like usual, long queue, many customers but the service is very efficient. Of course like any other Japanese restaurant, you need to wait to be seated. Also, you have the option of sitting near the kaiten belt or normal dining table.
Enough talk on the atmosphere. Let’s check out what I ordered!
Today is a special day considering this is my first time in Sushi Zanmai. So, I decided to dry my wallet to get almost all the nicest dishes here.
I ordered Kinoko Butter Yaki (mixed mushroom), Chawanmushi and my all time favorite Kanpyo Maki and Oshinko Maki. The Kinoko is a combination of various steam mushrooms such as Enoki mushroom, shitake mushroom and White Clamshell Mushroom.. I hope I get the mushroom name right.
The Chawan Mush is slightly special as one of the ingredients is prawn instead of common crabsticks. And Kanpyo Maki and Oshinko Maki are actually “pickles” rolls. Love it so much. Never disappoint me.
Those are just the starter. I then ordered Hotate Teriyaki, Soft Shell Crab Maki, Hana Salmon Maki and Salmon Belly Roll. Surprisingly the hotate teriyaki is a bit dry but the soft shell crab maki is as good as Sushi King.
The Hana Maki Salmon is slightly different from Hana Maki that I tried in Sakae Sushi. In sakae sushi the topping is mayonnaise but over here is served with fish roe. If you like Salmon Belly Roll, go to Sushi Zanmai now because this is a promotional dish for limited time only.
Is that all?
Of course not! Later I ordered, Cha Soba and Dai Dai Roll. Ok, Cha Soba is very new to me. So, I let my friend to have the honor to show me how to eat this. Generally, just dip and stir the cold green tea noodle in the soup provided before you eat it. Isn’t that simple? Silly me.
The Dai Dai role has nothing special but I just like the freshness taste of salmon. Love this dish. Hehe.
Lastly, the dessert! I ordered Macha Monaka and Itachoco Monaka. It is very special indeed. Vanilla or Green Tea ice cream wrap with waffle. Ohh there is a thin layer of chocolate in it too and this makes every single bite is just so deliciously yummy.
How come the sad part, the bill. I spent about RM 115 for this meal. Expensive or not? I will let you all to decide. Personally, I think the price is reasonable because the awesome taste of every single dish just make this meal worth the money.
Now I officially categorize Sushi Zanmai as my all time favorite Sushi Restaurant in Malaysia. You should try it too!
