Pasta Zanmai (パスタ三昧)
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food
After knowing that this restaurant is opened in 1 Utama, without second thoughts we went straight to check this Japanese and Western fusion restaurant out. We also learned that Pasta Zanmai is part of the Rakuzen Japanese Food Chain.
Service was very slow here. The waiters and waitresses seemed so busy and it took them a long while to serve our drinks. Anyway, here’s our ryokucha (緑茶) served in a pot. Priced at RM3, this pot of green tea can be shared among 2 to 3 persons.
After waiting for a long time, finally our pasta was served. Here’s our kinoko to onsen tamago no cream sauce (キノコと温泉たまごのクリームソース). Priced at RM18, this Japanese mushroom and hot spring egg cream sauce pasta was rather delicious with the light creamy sauce. After mixing the egg with the pasta, the spaghetti tasted even smoother and creamier. The black pepper boosted its overall taste. The serving was quite large too, we really enjoyed it.
The Japanese curry tasted rather mild and aromatic. It tasted quite well when eaten with the egg and the rice. The rice was soft and quite flavourful too. Overall, it was quite satisfying. But the portion served was rather small.
Lastly, we had our dessert. They were all too attractive to be missed. We chose to have this macha crepe (抹茶クリープ). Price at RM12, this crepe was filled with green tea ice-cream, azuki red bean and various fruits. The combination went well and the fruits served were quite fresh. The crepe was served cold and we ate that last after finishing the ice-cream and fruits.
Check this restaurant out if you’re interested in Japanese and Western fusion food. There are many different types of pasta for you to choose from. But bear in mind that service is rather slow here, so be patient while waiting for your food. Anyhow, we are rather confident that they would improve their service in the future since they’re still new.
