Sushi Zento

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

Upon en­ter­ing , guests will be greeted by an airy, high­ceil­ing area down­stairs where con­veyor- belt sushi snakes through ta­bles while a gi­ant fish mounted on the wall watches on.

The food is served promptly, start­ing with the jigoku ra­men, also nick­named ‘hell ra­men’ for its spici­ness. The deep red soup com­bines the rich, smoky notes of a pork bone broth with the slow burn­ing heat of chilli. With chewy ra­men and thick-cut pork slices, it is def­i­nitely not for sen­si­tive palates.

The flavoured egg and ba­con salad pro­vides much needed relief af­ter the jigoku ra­men. Plenty of crisp ba­con and sliced egg with gooey cen­tres el­e­vate the sim­ple salad to down­right de­li­cious while a savoury, tangy sauce ties ev­ery­thing to­gether.

To cleanse the palate, the salmon sashimi is noth­ing short of ex­quis­ite. Each thick cut of vi­brant or­ange flesh is but­tery soft and melts in the mouth with no trace of fishi­ness, a tes­ta­ment to its fresh­ness.

Sushi Zento of­fers a wide ar­ray of al­co­holic beverages from sake and beer to shochu and plum wine. There are close to 30 op­tions un­der sake with prices rang­ing from RM38 to RM338. Or take your pick from dif­fer­ent kinds of shochu like sweet potato, bar­ley, buck­wheat and rice.

Two house sakes are of­fered — Hokkan Karakuchi Sen and Kiza­kura Karakuchi Sen. The for­mer is served in a heated wa­ter bath and is smooth, sweet, with just a touch of dry­ness.
