Sushi Zen at The Gardens, Mid Valley

The idea of heading over to Sushi Zen came up when Superhero S told Superhero W of this Japanese restaurant she has read over at Parisbeaverbank's foodie blog not too long ago. I was seriously intimidated by the delicious foodie pics in that post that I could hardly get it off my mind since. OH....yummy~!!

And since The Gardens is like our next-door neighbour, we flew over there in no time and found a nice seat with a nice fengshui because most people are seated around that corner, right in front of Jumbo. You see, for the uninitiated, Sushi Zen has 4 seating corners, with the middle part being the place used by the chefs to cook you your favourite meals. Niceeee...


We love the mood surrounding the foodie area in The Gardens. Not too crowded, but just enough people to make you feel comfortable. So once seated, Superhero W ordered the Sushi Zen Bento Set (with Sashimi, Tempura,Unagi, Sonomono), which is priced at RM38.

Superhero S ordered the Nabeyaki Udon & Temaki Set (Claypot Udon with California and Salmon Rolls) priced at RM22, coupled with a nice Crabmeat Mayonnaise Roll at RM4.90 as the side order along with 2 hot Green Tea.




The bill came immediately, which surprised us for their display of extreme efficiency. And then came our 2 green tea. Nice and hot, just what I needed to warm-up to the air-con in The Gardens. And after another short wait, came the Udon Set...





WOW... we're shocked.
It's not just any ordinary set. There is just sooooooooooooo many side items accompanying my XXL Claypot Udon and for a moment, I seriously felt so lost!?! Which one to eat first????

The Udon Set comes with 2 fresh Californian and Salmon Rolls...



and this really hot chawamushi or Japanese Steamed Egg Custard which is ultra delicious!!



And the Claypot Udon itself is just soooo BIG with soooo many ingredients inside! There's the egg, the Tempura, a whole lot of Enoki mushrooms, ridiculous amount of Chicky bits and many many more! OH I dunno what to say?! Simply delicious. The soup is really tasty, and with taste of the egg accompanying the soup, WOW... :p



Then came the Crabmeat Mayonnaise Rolls. There are 6 to a set. And my my...You should really order this. The rolls are so soft, and I just love the beautiful egg roes coating its outer layer. When you sink your teeth into the Crabmeat rolls, you can taste the fresh crabmeat, the seaweed and of course, the superb mayonnaise! I likeeeee.... *grins*


Superhero W's Bento set came soon enough. More surprises. Soooo many dishes in the Bento!!! Okay, so now it's his turn to look lost. Which one to eat first?!? Haha.

The Sushi Zen Bento comes with a nice big piece of Unagi, Tempuras and those fried veges, lotsa assorted Sashimi, those sweet Eggs, some fresh octopus and prawn, chawamushi, and a nice bowl of steaming Miso soup.


Love the Unagi, which is actually eel. Sweet and tender... one bite is all it takes to get you floating around and get high! Haha. And the Sashimi is really really really fresh. No kidding. Recommended. You can taste its freshness right from the first bite. But too bad we couldn't finish it because our stomach were on the brink of exploding already! Heheh.

And you know what? One of the staff actually came over to our table immediately after seeing Superhero S pointing her fingers (no, no the middle finger!) at the unfinished Sashimi. He was concerned if anything was wrong with the Sashimi. "No sir, I can't help but feel so sorry for the unfinished Sashimi, that's all." *sad look* Haha. :p


Great service, great food, great ambience. What more can one ask? And the bill came at only RM78. Looking at how much food and happiness we've got in return, I'd say it's sooooo damn worth it!

We're definitely coming back soon!!! :p
