Last month we had a complete 5 jimui gathering. Myself, Ashley, Wanyi, Nic & Vivi. Nic suggested Pasta Zanmai which is located at 1st floor of Midvalley Megamall. Pasta Zanmai is the sister of Sushi Zanmai. It was my first time dining here, same goes to most of them. Therefore we went ahead with the plan. The name comes with the word ‘pasta’, true enough the menu mostly consist of pastas!
It was 12pm and its already lunch time. I see the restaurant is quite full. But no problem in getting a table for 5 of us.
These chopsticks come in a handy way. Since its a wooden chopstick, I assume it will be thrown after usage. ^^
After reading the menu and place our orders, then we would like to order Green Tea for our drink. *sweat* Didn’t know order green tea also can be so much of hassle. Here’s the conversation….
We : Would like to order a jug of green tea with 5 empty glass pls. Bcos there are 5 of us.
Waitress A : Sorry, we can only give 3 glasses for a jug of green tea. But the green tea is refillable.
We : But there are 5 of us! So, if a jug is for 3 person, how about we order a jug of green tea and another additional 2 cups of green tea?
Waitress A : Sorry, we don’t serve green tea in cup.
We : *started to get benggang already* Fine! Then just 1 jug of green tea.
Then we asked from another waiter who brought us the jug of tea, whether can he bring us another 2 empty cups. He then answered “I can’t do that. But I can bring 2 cups of plain water for you”. Well….at least he gave us a better option! Thank you.
Agedashi Tofu (sorry, forgot the price). Tofu was smooth but the gravy was quite salty!
The beautiful runny egg + teriyaki chicken + rice, stir well…it result was quite good.
The food above comes in a set of 2 items (serving size – average). There are several sets for you to choose. We chose 3 different sets to be shared among us. So sorry that I’ve forgotten the names. And I forgotten to keep the receipt. (Duno busy doing what oso @_@). But I do remember each set are price at RM25. The overall taste was not too bad la…but I minus marks due to the inconsistency spaghetti. Not well cooked. Some were still hard! Their pizza is the only thing I like. Thin and crispy crust. 😉

Vivi and Nic left earlier. Ashley, Wanyi and I felt thirsty later. So, we thought why not drop by Snowflake for a bowl of dessert and a drink. *As usual…the place was crowded! Need to grab a seat 😦
We tried Ocha’Ryo (RM7.90), new in their menu. The shaved ice (bottom) is made of green tea. It was quite smooth, feels as though I was having green tea ice cream. Topped with red beans, baby pearls and black sesame balls.
I also ordered a cup of Lime Jade Jelly Green Tea (RM5.50) for myself.
*why my face looks so tired here huh??*
Yeah…TGIF and long weekend! A toast to everyone! 😉
Off Topic: Understand that its going to be a long Raya break for most of the Malaysians…wish everyone Happy Holidays and Selamat Hari Raya. These few days while driving to and from work, I noticed there’s many road accidents on highway. Please remember to drive safely on road.

Pasta sounds Italian… Food looks good…but Snowflake!!! No, thank you…
STP – Hahahaha! I knew you dun like that! No Taiwanese dessert for STP! :-p
ooo, RM25 per set seems like a decent deal. as for the green tea, hmmm, i guess after the two of you who drank the plain water have emptied your cups, you can start filling them with green tea, heh 😀
Sean – Yeah…RM25 a set with 2 types of food, I would say not bad. About the cups…hahaha…yaya..we actually did that :-p
Wah so stupid the service. Just give ppl two more cups la!
Baby Sumo – yala…that’s simple rite! Aduhh
LOL! Lucky I have not encountered such hassle whenever I am at Pasta Zanmai. I do like their food but their service seem to be below par at times.
Chong – looks like its not consistent oso huh…
Ha! If only I had a secret camera to record all of these senseless conversations I’ve experienced over the years in restaurants in Malaysia – it would make a great sitcom!
Hi Yum List. hahahaha!!! Great idea. Then u compile all of them…
I won’t think of going back there lor…. -__-
its always fun to be out with the girlfriends…no matter whether food is good or otherwise.
I totally agreed with what you’ve said. 😉
Thank you for patronizing Pasta Zanmai! We are glad that you have enjoyed your visit with us. We apologize for the inconveniences caused by the pot/jug of green tea, as it’s our company policy to serve maximum 3 cups for 1 pot/jug as the pot/jug is quite small. ^^”
Have a nice day ahead & we hope to serve you again soon. ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ﾉ
