Shabu Shabu


Last night my sweetie and I tried Shabu Shabu for dinner at a new restaurant not too far from here. Shabu Shabu is prepared in a pot on a burner in front of the diner - by the diner! I ordered fish and vegetables. After the contents of the pot are boiled to perfection, you remove them and eat them with dipping sauces and white rice. It seemed like a very healthy way to prepare food and I thought it was delicious, too.

After reading Wendy's blog today, I realized that Shabu Shabu is very similar to the Chinese Hot Pot. I'm going to have to try that sometime, too. I am fortunate to live close to a very large Asian community in which there are many Chinese, Korean, Filipino, and Indian markets and restuarants. It makes for some good eating!

    Hmmm...It looks interesting. I'll try just about anything a few times to see if I like it.

    Heyyyyy! Coolio - we did the same thing. Almost, I think. Ours was delish, too. And, seemed really healthy. We're going to have seconds tonight.

    Wish us luck! Happy Mother's Day. XO

    Looks pretty cool!

    Our midwestern Chinese food consists of things like fried rice and sweet and sour fried stuff. Typical. You West Coasters get all the cool stuff. LOL!

    Mmmmm Yummy! I LOVE Vietnamese Hotpot, which isn't as soupy. It's more like fried rice (except its not fried!) and it's got heaps of yummy extras in it!

    That looks wonderful! In this small town we don't have anything like that. I guess we'll all just have to come for a visit! :)

    Looks very much like hot pot, delicious!! The hot pot is veggies and meat boiled in spicy broth, it's much like a fondue.Is shabu shabu boiled in spices too?
