Getting bored with the eatery found at Sunway Pyramid? Then try Sushi Zanmai! This is a genuine conveyor-belt sushi restaurant, opened not long ago! A-must-try!! *nods confidently* Irrashai masei! I’m greeted by the staff once arrived at this place of undisputed origin. I was amazed again by the exterior of the restaurant, with a class of its own somehow… What’s more to offer in the interior? Comfort, secure seats beside the conveyor-belt placed with sushis!! They have this “open kitchen” design, like Dragon-i restaurant 🙂 All sushis are priced from RM1.60 to RM6 only! Cheapo! Besides, they offer a variety of Japanese cuisine as well!
Their qoutes: Backed by more than 20 years of experience in Japan, Sushi Zanmai possesses extensive expertise for raw materials selection. Genuine ingredients coupled with original recipes, we provide more than 100 assortments of sushi and 100 varieties of cooked food that are authentically Japanese.
First up for drinks, we ordered the Ocha (hot Green Tea), RM1 per cup. Look at these green tea cups! Think they cute yet owning a class of its own.. like some Jade outlook 🙂
Ordered the Chawanmushi (steamed egg custard) for RM4.80. Served hot, the soft and smooth texture totally captivated my taste bud straight away! Great taste!
Since I love tofu, Chris ordered me the Agedashi tofu (fried beancurd) ! Priced at RM6.80, you’ll again get to enjoy this serving of tofu.. better than sushi King :I claimed! *comparing eh?* ok.. more comparison: even the environment is better! Better food, lower price, effective service and… everything! (maybe I’m bored 🙁 with Sushi King already) Perhaps….
We are already drooling at this while waiting for order, the Soft Shell Crab Maki priced at RM6. This is delicious people! Just to share a little on Makimono: Maki sushi is “rolled” sushi. It usually comprises seafood (which may or may not be raw), vinegared rice and paper-thin seaweed. Julienne fresh vegetables such as cucumber and carrots are also the common ingredients. The typical maki sushi has seaweed on the outermost layer, followed by rice, surrounding a core of seafood and vegetables. The reverse roll is a variation on the typical roll, with rice on the outside and seaweed in the middle 🙂
As for sushi, we had the Tuna Salad Sushi @ RM2.80. We didn’t had any other sushis on conveyor-belt although we’re “eyeing” on them, as our main course had already “bloated” us up! haha!
Chris had the Yakiniku Don (grilled beef on rice). He had this for RM10.80, the price for “small” serving. For the larger serving, it’ll be RM19.80. Chris asserted that he has lots of cravings in this Yakiniku Don. Fragrant rice, yummy beefs!
As for me, I had the Oyako Don (simmered chicken with egg on rice). Initially, this gave me a feeling that it’ll taste something like the Curry Fried Rice Bibimbab that I had at Sushi Groove before this, but I’m totally wrong. With a different style and taste, this dish tends to lure me for another visit! Priced at RM8.80 for small serving (I had this) and RM15.80 for big serving.
We’re so full, felt so pleased and contented with the meal and tranquil surroundings they provide. Well, I think this place is somewhat more affordable and worthwhile compared to…well u know (mentioned earlier) The rice served are soft to the correct consistency I’ll say. Like the sushis I had, its rice is not hard and “not processed by machines” (in order to form the small clumps) like.. u-know-where…
Just wanna make sure one thing: Can anyone tell me how does Japanese rice looked like? Are they “short and…what’ll I say..fat??” Cuter than our local rice right? Sushi Zanmai serve this type of rice here… I noticed.
Before leaving, just wanna let you know that there’s a shop next to it selling Japanese foodstuffs, drinks and snacks. Convenient eh? Japanese food lovers! Do give this a try, located just above Kim Gary, and near Zen Japanese Restaurant.
and.. my ‘Food-tracking’ partner, AiWei! Wanna give it a go? I’ve vouchers!!!
