Shabu shabu Train

Shabu-shabu (しゃぶしゃぶ? , also spelled syabu-syabu) is a Japanese variant of hot pot. It is considered a winter dish but is eaten year-round.

A llitle bit of History on Shabu Shabu

The dish may have originated in the 13th century as a way for Genghis Khan to efficiently feed his soldiers. Mongol troops would have gathered around large pots and cooked together. Thinly sliced meat was used for its short cooking time, which allowed the Mongolian army to conserve its limited supply of fuel.

Shabu-shabu was introduced in Japan in the 20th century with the opening of a Shabu-shabu restaurant Suehiro in Osaka. The name of Shabu-shabu was named when Suehiro served it. After that, Suehiro registered the name of shabu-shabu as a trademark in 1955. The cuisine rapidly spread through Asia and is now a popular dish in Western countries as well.

My visit to Shabu Shabu Train!

Obviously, steamboat lovers can savour the dish according to their budget and likings. There is some 250 types of steamboat items which are packed individually on colored plates which indicates the prices, ranging from RM 0.90, RM 1.90, RM 2.90 and RM 3.90. Pay a little bit extra and choose the selection of eel, mussel, salmon and shark fins, and to cook your items, you can choose the soup base preferred which is chicken, tom yam or miso soup base. To keep it simple, you may want to try the combo set they offered or try their ala carte menu!

At last, I am not saying that this is the best steamboat I ever's just a normal not so delicious steamboat, but the varieties offered were so tempting. For me, I am rating it at 2 star restaurant
