Sushi Zen @ The Gardens

Monday nite’s Text message (roughly like that):

Christine: Happy holiday, your exam over! Want hang-out? Where you want to go?

Me: Yep, papers done. Can relax. Hehe. I want hang-out but I have no idea where to go.

Christine: I’m bored. Wanna go Mid Valley tmr? Wanna try Sushi Zen! Besides, I wanna get present for my friend.

Me: Tmr??? [O.o] Okay, I am very free. I wanna try Sushi Zen too! Too long time nv hav Jap food! Can’t wait!

Christine: then I will be at ur hse at 10.30am. See you gal!

Me: See ya tmr. Can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait!


There it goes. We were in Mid Valley and The Gardens the next morning. Window shopping while helping Christine for her friend’s present. When it came to lunch, we hopped over Sushi Zen すし善 as promised a night earlier. Sushi Zen with the Kiosk open area concept is located at the LG level. Honestly, I don’t like the idea of this open-area concept but that’s not the point to deny good looking Jap food *wink*

Refillable Green tea at Rm 1.50

茶碗蒸し Chawanmushi the steamed egg custard was flavourful and smooth soft silky. We couldn’t help ourselves with it and kept feeding our stomach. It was real slippery when spoonful of it went down through my esophagus. I could feel that!

.As for the main, Christine had 天寿 Tenjyu which came in assorted tempura (large prawn, eggplant… ) on rice. They were arranged neatly in the bento box. Christine gave me a prawn as she can’t take too much prawn. The prawn was still juicy after tempura-fried.

I ordered the 北海ちらし丼 Hokkai Chirashi Don which came with Hokkaido seafood (scallop slices, salmon slices, salmon roe) on sushi rice. The serving was large and at just Rm 15.90. Scallops, salmons and the roe were very fresh. I felt so bahagia in a sudden as it has been a very long time since my last Jap meal.
Am I exaggerating too much?!

Christine wanted to order more but I hold Christine from doing so because I was afraid we couldn’t finish all. And that was a right choice to do so as our mains were large. We both enjoyed this lunch a lot and gave Thumbs-up for our choices. And she bought a new canon power shot camera which is very handy and advance. *envy* like her camera with lots of function. During out lunch, we have listed out some place/restaurant to try out next. The list was kinda long. So, Christine, where and when’s next?
