What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word "Pasta"? Obviously, you'd think about Italian food, right? After all, pasta comes from Italy.

However, the Japanese have also adopted pasta by creating Japanese pasta. I'm not sure about you, but I've never heard of Japanese pasta. Okay, I'm a self confessed Japanese or Italian food lover but I'm not a pasta lover. It was Edward's birthday last Sunday and the pasta lover was seeking for an adventure of sorts!


#1 Pasta Zanmai, a Japanese Casual Pasta Restaurant which serves Japanese-Italian fusion food at its casual best.

Being a frequent visitor and shopper of the shopping mall, I can walk past this row many times and miss this restaurant completely, somehow. Smileys


#2


#3 Pasta with chopstick?


#4


#5

At Pasta Zanmai, only one type of pasta is used – Japanese spaghetti, and it's presented in 50 different styles. Their version is rather contemporary as the pasta (spaghetti like noodles) is said to be lighter than Italian spaghetti.

Teri Hotate Piza comes with...


#6 Teriyaki Chicken Pasta

and


#7 Hotate (Scallop) Piza.


#8 Milky Green Tea.


#9 Ice Fruit Tea.


#10 Surume Ika (Squid).

Ebiten Unagi RC set Meal...


#11


#12


#13 Sunshine.


#14 Teriyaki Chicken.


#15 Unagi (Eel).

Overall, the food and service are both EXCELLENT and the prices are REASONABLE! Smileys After we had finished eating, the server brought out his my favorite


#16 Blueberry Cheesecake!

I am not sure what his favorite cake is, so I just chose my favorite one. Smileys

I haven't been to OU in a while.. I only go there if I join Syura or when my mom is in town. If it was up to J, we won't ever go over to Damansara. But I love Damansara.. I used to stay there when I was in college and I love the area. But J is a subang homeboy! LOL!

i have not heard of japanese pasta myself. this is something worth trying, the fusion will definitely make the food interesting. however japanese pizza i have tried - the original flavoured okonomiyaki is awesome! =)
