While I was back working in Penang, there seemed to be a surge in Japanese restaurants in KL and Selangor, among the many is Sushi Zanmai. Before this, I have already read lots of good comments about them being the preferred sushi joint. Last weekend, I finally paid Sushi Zanmai @ Sunway Pyramid a long-awaited visit. Since it has been open for nearly two years, I bet many of you have tried the food before.
We only took sushi from the conveyor belt and a few other items for the entire meal, didn’t order any set meal or noodles they have. Perhaps next time. This is a nice one with salmon slices sandwiched between the with sweet and spicy mayonnaise.
I noticed many Sushi Zanmai’s sushi are topped with various mayonnaise (you’re gonna see this word many times lol), quite different from what other sushi joints are offering. It sure adds a lot of flavor!
Scallop sushi, very nice! The pricing for Sushi Zanmai’s sushi (according to plate color): cheapest is Blue @ RM2.80, Pink @ RM3.80, Black @ RM4.80 and Red @ RM6.00.
Ball shaped sushi wrapped with Ebi and topped with mayonnaise and fish roe. The look was good enough for me to take it, lol.
Unagi sushi, the unagi slices are pretty thin though. But, tastes good nonetheless.
One of my favorite cheapos, Tamago sushi. I like how they spiced up the presentation using the mayonnaise and made it look a lot nicer.
Some pretty normal maki with crab and mayonnaise filling.
Same thing like above, but different ingredients on the rice.
Chawanmushi @ RM4.80. This is good stuff and comes with fresh prawns. Well, you can’t see them because they are at the bottom of the cup.
The service is good as well, at least my green tea is constantly being refilled without having to ask. Unlike others eg. Sushi King where you have to raise your hands and wave like mad to get the waiters’ attention lol.
Total damage for the nice meal was RM46.70 (10% service charge, 5% tax), which also included a miso soup which I didn’t show, ocha and wet tissue. Wet tissue, hmm. Verdict? Thumbs up and a confirmed return customer!
By the way, I had some trouble looking for this restaurant in Sunway Pyramid and the information kiosk wasn’t a great help. So, the easiest way to locate it is to look for Kim Gary because Sushi Zanmai is just on top of it.
