Wa Zen Japanese Restaurant

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  | $ $ $ $ $

I have a confession to make. It has taken me a couple of months (and a number of eating trips here) before I finally decided to write about WaZen. You see I have had to face strong opposition by certain members of the family as well as friends about "spreading" the word about WaZen. The most common reason that they've given me is (with Malaysian accent) "You don't want to post this on your blog-la. It's hard enough to get a table already, plus they will jack up the price once all the outstation people start eating here!" I guess that statement is pretty easy to understand even with the Malaysian way of speaking? If not, leave me a comment and I will explain.

I'm actually pretty surprised that a majority of WaZen's customers are locals with just a handful of outstation visitors. I know this because my Uncle Willie is such a common fixture here that he's gotten really close to the owner and chef who provided us with that little tidbit of information. Hmm.. come to think of it.. maybe the locals know how good this place is and do not want to share it with others? If so and you're reading this, I'm sorry!, a place as good as this has to be shared!

Below are some of my favourite dishes.

Erawan Classic Thai

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥   |   $ $ $ $ $

My brother like the rest of our family loves eating. He is constantly surfing the web and checking out food blogs for good eats and we'll pick and check them out. Yay for all the food bloggers out there. Keep up the good work!

One such recommendation was erawan in Kota Damansara. Erawan, started up by two brothers, Anan and Korn, serves up classic thai dishes and has been voted as one of Asian's Finest Restaurant 2010/2011 by The Miele Guide.

Before you go ahead and decide to eat at Erawan on an impulse note that the owners have been known to turn people away if the kitchen can't keep up with the orders and this reduces the quality of the food they churn out.
