pasta zanmai, mid valley.
where i feel like having japanese but wants something different, this is where i go. fusion dishes between japanese and italian. and i like that the crowd here is not as crazy as sushi zanmai, if you go early, you don’t even need to queue.
we like to order the mini pasta set, there’s 2 dishes in smaller size for each set, this way, we get to try more things. =) i ordered pasta and pizza set and EdeNz ordered pasta with maki set.
my set has a mini pasta with teriyaki chicken and onsen tamago and hotate & shitake pizza. the pasta is really nice with the smooth half boiled egg, chicken slices are very soft and has a strong teriyaki taste. pizza is really crispy with lots of mushrooms on it and there’s scallops on each slice topped with mayonnaise.
EdeNz’s pasta is in a hot pot, cooked with various vegetables in miso soup, with tempura. the taste of the soup is really sweet, goes really well with tempura. the salad roll has lots of crunchy vegetables, makes the texture nice and very refreshing.
we also ordered salmon temaki, since both of us really like salmon. the hand roll taste good with the special mayonnaise.
we definitely enjoyed our meal, very satisfying. the service here is not too bad even when it’s full house, but sometimes you do need to wait awhile. it’s definitely worth a try though, it’s something different.
