Dropping in with a short and sweet entry!
You might recall a previous post where I did a walking tour of Quayside Mall, a relatively new mall located in the twentyfive.7 township at Kota Kemuning South. While there isn’t much going on in the neighbourhood, the mall is pretty well equipped and has everything from a higher-end grocer to restaurants, mobile and internet service providers, and a convention centre.
After our trip to Immigration to sort out N’s papers, the bro, N and I stopped by the mall for lunch, where we decided to go for Sushi Zanmai.
Like its other branches, the Sushi Zanmai here has the same aesthetics: spacious and airy interior, with lots of wood and tall windows for natural sunlight. Service was efficient and friendly; we were promptly seated at a booth and since the menu is now paperless, we made our orders by scanning a QR code at the table.
For appetisers, the chuuka idako is a must. I like that they don’t skimp on the portions, and the octopus is well marinated and flavourful.
If you like wasabi, try the tako wasabi (octopus with wasabi). It’ll clear any blocked sinuses immediately! It might take some getting used to, though, as the octopus has a slimy texture which not everyone might find palatable.
We also got some sushi, like the tuna inari (tuna with rice stuffed in sweet beancurd).
For mains, Sushi Zanmai offers a selection of rice and noodle dishes, as well as other options like sukiyaki (hotpot). You can opt for regular sized meals, but if you’re a small eater, the small portions are good enough (plus they’re very affordable!)
I got udon in a soy sauce broth served with crispy tempura vegetables and prawn; the Bro had rice with fried fish fillets. The tempura was excellent: lightly battered and crispy; it paired really well with the chewy noodles.
Overall, I enjoyed the food and service from this Sushi Zanmai branch, and wouldn’t mind stopping by again if I’m in the area! Prices are quite affordable too for the setting and quality.
