After quite a while I tried a completely new dish and not exaggerating even a bit but I can’t wait to try it again with my family and friends (and show-off that I found this new dish! Lol! )
To be honest, the restaurant, Shabu Shabu, took me by surprise! I wasn’t expecting the food and the ambience to be that good, it exceeded my expectations in every aspect.
It was my first Hot Pot (A cooking method, prepared with a simmering pot of soup stock at the dining table, containing a variety of East Asian foodstuffs and ingredients) experience and I can’t deny it that I was swept off my feet!
About Hot Pot or Boiling Pot-
Families/groups of friends sit around a table and eat from a steaming pot in the middle, cooking and drinking (and chatting!). Eaters must select morsels of prepared raw food from plates from around the table, place them in the pot, wait for them to cook, fish them out of the soup, dip them in the preferred sauce, and then eat them hot, fresh, and tender, they also drink it the broth. Not only is it extremely tasty but is equally healthy (Meat, Sea Food, Tofu, Vegetables, Spices, what more you need?!)
People claim that hot pot dates far back to the Jin Dynasty, almost 1000 years ago! Mongolian horsemen who travelled into China started this fascinating Hot Pot. Weary and hungry, the men supposedly cooked soups in their helmets over open fires and added various meats to the broth. While the practice produces warming, tasty results, especially in the winter months, it also naturally encourages hours of eating, drinking, and conversing. In short, hot pot can usually be equated to good times. The Mongols knew this.”
At Shabu Shabu, you can choose your own Pot, your own sauces, flavours, dips, seasoning, meat, or vegetables (don’t forget to try mushrooms!). With so many combinations available it guarantees a unique taste and experience every time. Also, if you are not too sure what to order, the staff is happy to help.

Golden and White buns were something that you cannot afford to miss!
