Category: Japanese Hotpot/Shabu-shabu
Shabu shabu also known as Japanese hotpot. My favourite type of cuisine.
I was lucky enough to visit New York this winter break.
Shabu – Tatsu, apparently ranked as the second best Japanese Sukiyaki in New York.
They also offer BBQ and bibimbap.
This picture was taken while we were waiting for our table.
We waited for around 30 mins.
But you guys don’t have to wait to see the food :P
Shabu shabu is very popular in Tokyo.
Minimum order $40 per table. Not a cheap place to go if you’re low on cash.
Heating our pot of clean and pure water. Gotta get the water boiling before we put our veggies in.
Steamy. I love eating at a Japanese restaurant, the atmosphere is always welcoming and fun.
Two types of sauces were given; soy sauce and sesame sauce with radish and green onions.
A little bowl of salad for everyone.
Cooking the veggies first so we can make the water taste a bit better by draining out all the juices.
Meat, yum. We got two types of beef and one plate of pork.
Thinly sliced pork again!
The red one was the beef. Very tender as well.
We also had a plate of shrimp too.
That’s why I love shabu shabu.
After we cooked the meat, I dipped it in some good old soy sauce and slapped it on a bowl of rice.
What was special about Shabu – Tatsu was that they would give you a little cup of salt.
Then the cup is used to make your own soup by adding and mixing some of the boiling water into it.
Healthy? I think so too.
Our desserts, more ice cream! Green tea, chocolate, red bean and vanilla.
Great news, they are now open for lunch too.
It’s a fun place to go to with a group of 4 or 5 people.
Order a Sapporo and wolf down all those meat :D
