Shaba Shabu is a Japanese dish featuring thinly sliced beef boiled in water.
The term is meant to be an onomatopoeia because of the sound emitted when the ingredients are stirred in the cooking pot – however, we heard no such sound.
So you are presented with a funny pot of water that sits over a tea candle, thin slices of beef and a mix of thinly sliced vegetables.
They you wait until the water is boiling and plonk everything in.
Then you dip it all in the different dipping sauces – usually Ponzu sauce and Sesame sauce and eat it with rice.
You also get an appetiser box full of tasty goodness knows whats.
Then she’s up to the buffet for the all you can eat tempura!
