Pasta Zanmai - Sunway Pyramid

Technically, this should be 1 of the honeymoon post. Since I've lost count of how many honeymoon post I've got, so I've decided to leave this out of the honeymoon series :p The next honeymoon post will definitely be the final post.   Honeymoon was so long ago that it's getting boring already. Anyway, here's a lunch that we had 1 of those days when we were in Sunway Pyramid. 
Before going back to Malaysia, my sister told me that she went to a pasta place in Malaysia and it was quite good. I thought 'go all the way to Malaysia to eat pasta?? what sort of pasta can you get in Malaysia that you can't get in Sydney??' Turned out there was pasta that we don't really see in Sydney - Japanese fusion pasta. 
Ika to Ika Sumi no Pasta - "Surume" Squid & Squid-ink Pasta - RM19. I actually quite like this pasta but Robin felt like he's been 'cheated'. He thought when the menu say 'squid-ink pasta' it was those black pasta that was made with squid ink. Not normal pasta that added squid ink as a sauce. I don't mind that at all though. Though it taste quite good, really liked the crunchy garlic too. 
Yup.. spaghetti in soup - Asari to Kinoko no Soup Pasta - Short-neck Clam & Japanese Mushroom Soup Pasta - RM26. It wasn't too bad, but it's just not really THAT special. Just like seafood soup, instead of noodle there was spaghetti. 
For side dish, we had Ika Geso Karaage - Fried Squid Tentacles - RM12
Another side dish - Hotate Teriyaki - Grilled Scallop with Teriyaki Sauce - RM12. This wasn't as good as expected. I find that it wasn't quite fresh enough and the sauce was little bit too sweet. 
Another spaghetti main that we got - Kani to Avocado no Gomadare Shitate - Crabmeat & Avocado Pasta with Sesame Sauce - RM23. I liked the sesame sauce. They actually gave some grinded sesame to go with it too. 
They had some interesting drinks on the menu as well. Here's the Apple Green Tea with slices of green apple as garnish. Interesting flavour, the best way I can describe is that it's very apple-ish and very green tea (not much help I know :p). 
I had the Minty Cucumber - RM 9. It's a very refreshing drink. Especially nice for hot weather like Malaysia. 

Definitely an interesting meal with pasta that's not Italian style. Wouldn't say it's really really fantastic or really really awesome, but definitely don't mind going back again and try their other dishes on the menu.

It's inside a shopping mall, nicely lit, shouldn't have too much trouble with lighting. Depending on where you sit, might not have enough space to move back (if lens is not wide enough or have a bigger minimum focus distance) or move around that's all. 


  1. If you don't convert, it doesn't look like great value. Average food for an average price? At least it photographs well :)

  2. yeah .. lucky for us AUD was quite strong then .. haha.. but yeah..price wise it's probably not a everyday place to eat..

  3. Yum! There is one place tht does Japanese fusion pasta and it's pretty good. It's called Takeru in Chinatown on Sussx Street. If you ever get a craving ;)
