Food Around Me: Sushi Zanmai

Ever since my husband and I went to Tokyo, Japan last April 2013, we have had cravings for Japanese food every now and then. Out of the many good Japanese restaurants in Malaysia – one  of my favourite is Sushi Zanmai.

There are a few Sushi Zanmai outlets here in Malaysia. In Klang Valley itself:

  • 1 Utama
  • Low Yatt Plaza
  • Fahrenheit 88
  • 1 Mont Kiara
  • Paradigm Mall
  • Avenue K
  • The Gardens, Mid Valley

The ones that I usually go to is at The Gardens.

Am not sure about the other outlets, but the crowd at The Gardens is forever full! There will always be people lining up to eat at this place. That’s good business!

The best part is, everyone will be patiently waiting for their turns.

I would usually order cold Tenzaru Soba. It is deeelliiccciioousss! The first time I came across cold soba was when I was traveling in Tokyo. At first I felt weird eating lunch that is cold but the moment I had a taste of it, there’s no turning back! Cold soba it is then!

Coming back to Sushi Zanmai, Tenzaru soba is cold buckwheat noodles with chilled dipping sauce as soup and served with hot fried tempuras. The noodles are served on a bamboo basket.

Next is the sushi. I can’t remember the exact name on the menu but it is soft shell crab sushi topped with pieces of avocado and mayonnaise-like dressing on each sushi.

As for desserts – a must try mochi! The sweet and soft rice skin with vanilla ice cream in it. Fuuuhhh……. Devine!!



Bon appétit

Food Around Me: The Daily Grind

On weekends normally we would reward ourselves with something different than usual. I just remembered that this place has got the best desserts for waffle-lovers a.k.a my husband. So we head to Bangsar Village 1 to the Daily Grind. Since it is about lunch time, we ordered: Triple Stack Burger  which consists of three beef patties covered with cheddar cheese, beef bacon, mushroom, sautéed onions, ketchup, mustard & fried egg. Yuuummm!!

Triple Stack Burger – RM 37

And Old Fashion Waffles as dessert of which the waffle is  being stuffed with fresh cream and strawberries. It also comes with sweet maple syrup and the silky smooth and light vanilla ice-cream. It was delish!

Old Fashion Waffle – RM 18

One word….. satisfying! =)
