Zen House @ Sunway Velocity Mall

This vegetarian-friendly venue offers a comprehensive collection of Japanese fare in meat-free forms, from sushi moriawase (RM36.90) to kushiyaki skewers (RM33.90), tempura to teppanyaki, nabemono to noodle bowls. There's clearly thought & effort in how the food is crafted, but two caveats: A tolerance for mock meat (especially mock ham) seems crucial to enjoy a meal here, & the recipes might not taste more wholesome than regular Japanese fare (the skewers feel oilier than expected).

  2. If I had to pay almost the same prices for meat-free, I'm sorry but I'd want the real deal! ;D Thanks for mentioning that the skewers are oilier than expected...perhaps that's the only way to bump up the flavours?

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, as a meat-eater, I'd stick to the real deal too, though I guess I can understand why this might be a viable substitute for vegetarians. You make a good point about the skewers - I wonder if a nice dipping sauce could be the solution, instead of the greasy treatment ;)

  4. OMG, that Salmon is so real! Agreed with EWEW, I'll choose to have the real meat if meat-free is priced almost the same with the former.
