Japanase Lunch at Sushi Zanmai

>> Saturday, October 20, 2007

Located on the 3rd floor of The Gardens Shopping Mall, Mid Valley City, is a Japanese restaurant called Sushi Zanmai. Three of my high school friends, my Korean friend, & I were there for the 1st time to check out the food available at the restaurant. My 1st impression of the eatery is that it’s classy & cozy ;)

The menu looked impressive, but it didn’t have that much of a variety for its patrons to indulge in. Yet, despite the lack of variety, Sushi Zanmai still has a steady flow of patrons, entering its grounds & enjoying every bit of the food offered there. I can say that overall, the food is good. The price is alright, like the usual Japanese restaurants’ price.

Sushi Zanmai offers not only sushi, but noodles (ramen, soba, & udon), rice (don), & other side dishes. Most of its main course dishes come in 2 sizes, small & large, with prices ranging from RM8.80 to about RM20+ for the large portions. Green tea costs RM1.00/glass & is refillable, while their wet tissue provided in the set costs RM0.20/pack.

Here are some of the foods offered at Sushi Zanmai:

Tempura Soba てんぷら そば(small): RM10.80
- A type of Japanese noodles in miso みそsoup

Sakura Chirashi Don さくら ちらしどん(small): RM10.80
- Mixed seafood slices with rice

Yakiudon やき うどん(small): RM8.80
- Fried Udon with Chicken & some Seafood

Soft Shell Crab Maki (RM6.00), Mini California Maki (RM4.80 each), & Salmon Maki (RM3.80)

Una Tama うな たま(RM4.80 each), Inari Kani Ebikko いなりかにえびっこ (RM3.80), & Inari Ebikkoいなり えびっこ(RM3.80)

Do check this place out for yourselves. It is pretty good, really. I feel that it’s a good place to gather with friends, chit-chat, while enjoying a good meal together. :P

Korean Dinner Madness

Ah, it’s been a very long while since we last posted anything on this site. Very sorry, our dear faithful readers. We’ve been very, very busy with work and the industrial training report, and our next job awaits us in November. Both Anne & I will enter the work-world for ‘real’ in November! *faints*

Here’s something to share with all of you:

I had a really good dinner 3 weeks ago, on the last day of my industrial training. A couple of friends (ex-colleagues now) & I went all the way to this small Korean restaurant, near Ampang Point shopping complex after work. This restaurant is situated upstairs a mamak restaurant, situated at the row of shops on the left of Ampang Point’s main entrance (I can’t recall the name of the restaurant :( )

The price of food there is really worth paying for. The taste is good, the place is cozy, & the service there amazes me! I think all the soup & appetizers there are refillable!! *gasps* In total, we paid only around RM15/person for a super-duper meal & we sure had a great time there!

Here’s introducing the food that we had that night:

Appetizers (all FREE & refillable!!)

Dokbokgi (애ㅏ ㅠㅐㅏ 햐): RM10
This dish consists of rice cake (‘tube-like’ dough that resembles the ‘chee cheong fun’) cooked with special chilli sauce (or kimchi ㅏㅑㅡ 초ㅑ sauce), onions, & garlic leaves. I find this dish pretty delicious & it brought back fond memories of my trip to Korea mid this year.

Maeuntang (ㅡㅁ뎌ㅜㅅ뭏): RM35
Overflowing with oysters, clams/lala, prawns, & squid, served in spicy kimchi soup, onions, spring onions, & assorted vegetables, this dish (seafood soup) is a must have when you’re there! There are at least 6 large oysters, 30 clams, 8 prawns, & squid swimming all over. The soup is refillable & reheat-able too!! *waaaaahhh!!* :D

Samgeopsal (ㄴ므 ㅎ대ㅔ ㄴ미 ): RM25/serving
‘Samgeopsal’ means 3-layers meat. Pieces of meat (in this case pork…you can also order beef slices) are barbequed on an electronic pit & eaten with Chinese lettuce, garlic slice, chilli slice, and sauce. Below are pictures on ‘how to prepare the Samgeopsal’:

1. Place bbq-ed meat on the lettuce leaf

2. Add a slice of garlic

3. Add a slice of green chilli

4. Add pickled vegie (onions & spring onions)

5. Wrap the ingredients in the lettuce leaf & dip into the special sauce. Yummy!

Do drop by that place should you feel like having a Korean meal!


To get there by public transport, you can just take the Putra LRT to KLCC station, walk up the K-Avenue building to Jalan Ampang, get a bus to Ampang Point or take a cab there, & you’ll be able to find this restaurant.

* The owners speak simple English & the lady boss speaks Mandarin too.
