Zen Garden is a rather new seafood restaurant in Cheras. Tucked at the back of a sports complex, it may not be an easy location to find. I used my GPS but then I was silly not trust it. When I was instructed to go straight, I saw the sports complex entrance. So, I turn around and went the other direction. After going round and round, it still directed me back to the same spot. This time I called the restaurant to check their location and I was told the restaurant shared the same entrance as the sports complex. I should have known, how can I be smarter than the GPS? LOL!
I was invited to taste the food there by my friend, Criz Lai of Criz Bon Apetite. Hey Criz, thanks for the invitation. It was great to meet you in person finally. I am glad to know there is a new seafood joint in Cheras. Next time, when I visit my step brother and his family, we do not need to drive to Teluk Gong for seafood. What I really like about Zen Garden was the ambience and the ample parking space and the varieties of items to choose from in their Menu.
The most expensive item on the menu is probably the lobster which is still reasonably priced in my opinion. Other than the prawns and crabs, the rest of the items are priced at RM6.90 to RM12.90 per serving.
It was nice talking to one of the owners. He seemed to welcome feedbacks from all the invited guests. I could see his enthusiasm in wanting to deliver good quality and delicious food to his customers.
We had two kinds of soup for the steamboat. I liked the traditional soup over the tom yam soup. There were a variety of sauces to choose from and I tasted everyone of them. They were all good.
The tom yam soup for me was not spicy enough but I reckon not everyone like super spicy stuff like me. I was impressed with the freshness of the seafood and the attentive service. I will return with my family to taste the other seafood dishes on the menu.
Before we call it a night, we had to snap a shot for the album.
