  • About

Shabu-shabu is simplicity itself. A well-flavoured pot of simmering broth is put over a flame at the table for guests to cook their chosen ingredients as they like. This involves the skilful use of chopsticks, but is great fun – a Japanese variant on the fondue party. The ingredients to be cooked in the broth may be as your fancy and pocket dictate, but consider strips of chicken breast, peeled raw prawns, shiitake mushrooms, beansprouts, tofu, strips of beef fillet and spinach.
