If you love Japanese buffet, you will love Z'en.
True to its name, our dining experience at Japanese Z'en was peaceful and comfortable. The interior of the restaurant exudes a modern Japanese charm. The tables and seats were cosy and spacious and they even have a huge TV screen. Thumbs up for the ambience!
A group of us went for the Z'en shabu shabu and ala carte buffet (advertised as $38++ per pax; we paid about $45 each). In my opinion, it was more worth it to opt for the buffet because they have a wide variety of choices in their buffet menu. I thought that the beef and chicken shabu shabu was delicious but paled in comparison with the other ala carte dishes. Among the list of items that we ordered, I would recommend Grilled asparagus in cheese dressing, Sirloin steak Salmon Sashimi (comes in ten small but thick pieces), Unagi fried rice, Soft-shell crab fried rice, Soft shell crab maki, salmon avocado maki and Fried tofu.
And the goodness does not stop here.
I love Japanese desserts like matcha ice cream and the matcha ice cream served was one of the best I have tried. I also recommend its tofu cheese cake. I was amazed by how well the two flavours blended together. Best of all, it was neither too sweet nor creamy and I could easily have three plates in one seating. The creme brulee was a tad too overwhelmingly sweet and thick for me. However, people with a sweet tooth will love it. Moreover, just like all other dessert portions, the serving was small, so there is really no harm trying.
This is one of the best Japanese ala carte buffet I have ever tried. Will definitely be back again for more!
