We have been hearing all the buzz here and there about Sushi Zanmai and we decided that one of the date night we were gonna eat there.
What better night to go there for dinner than on a Friday night right?
Many people also warned us before that if you go on Friday and the weekends, especially dinner time, there will be a long queue right in front of the place, but we didn't really care. We, risk-takers. Hahaha. So we walked towards the restaurant after saying a fast and short prayer because we obviously don't want to beratur.
Saw the restaurant from a distance and no line! HOOORAYY! We got there, and waited like less than 5 minutes for them to clear the table and then we got our place. And dinner begins :)
Tamago Mentai (Omelette roasted with cod roe) - RM2.80
He says: Would recommend this one to you!
She says: When he took this sushi, I was like, "You came here to eat omelette on rice?" but then after I took one bite, I took another plate of this. SO YUMMY! Must be because of the cod roe. SO SO YUMMY!
We-forgot-the-name-of-this-sushi - RM1.80
He says: Erm.. typical sushi?
She says: Normal le.
Inari (Sweet beancurd) - RM1.80
He says: Love it.. the tofu pouches were sweet and tasty.
She says: No thanks for me. So weird to be eating the skin of tofu. HAHA.
Stir-fried vegetables (Teppanyaki style)
He says: Nah.. not so good.. Could taste much better..
She says: Worse stir-fry veg ever. Even I can do better than that.
Chicken Katsudon (Chicken cutlet simmered with egg on rice) - RM8.80 (small)
He says: Erm.. Not as good as I expected it to be but it was okay :)
She says: It says small in the menu but the real size was pretty huge. Rice was soft, chicken was crunchy and hot, but not much flavour to it. Not so nice overall.
Unatama Don (Roasted eel simmered with egg on rice) - RM18.80 (small)
He says: Definitely much better than the chicken katsudon for me. Try this!
She says: This one has more flavour than the chicken one. Maybe it's because of the unagi sauce, the sweet sauce. But also okay only la. Nothing to shout about really.
