Review of Broth Shabu-Shabu

Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 October 2021 via mobile

We found this restaurant, tucked away in a corner of the large Plaza 183 mall, while shopping for musical instruments nearby; we only saw the glowing reviews after. The wait was forty minutes on this Monday when we visited. The interior looked bright and spacious. Wait staff had masks on. All the booths were taken so it’s more traffic and less privacy where we’re seated. Probably because it’s a holiday, only dinner menu @$27 was offered at lunch time. After ordering the broth and the sampler of meats, we, wearing provided gloves, helped ourselves to cut vegetables, seafood (fish balls, squid and swai fish), tofu, varieties of noodles and other typical accompaniments at a center island area. On an adjacent counter we found dipping sauces (wish they were labeled). Both serving areas were kinda messy with dropped vegetables and dripped sauces. The thin slices of meat were tender and good quality; we liked the ribeye the most. It’s great that we could control the cooking temperature right at our finger tip. We appreciated that they served grated daikon and garlic, and kimchi. The meat and vegetable were filling; we didn’t even ask for second meat serving. Joseph, our server, was friendly and helpful.

Broth Shabu-Shabu, is located in Plaza 183, and was the first time we had tried this kind of eating experience. The staff were very safety orientated, polite, and took time to explain the way to enjoy this Japanese hotpot way of self-cooking our own meal at our table.
Basically, they presented us with a selection of different broths to choose from, then it is placed on a hot ring on the table.
Next completely masked we joined the buffet line and put on a pair of disposable gloves, and selected from the different vegetables, seafood, oden, and noodles items to add to our broth. There is also a section where we could take a variety of dipping sauces, to add more flavor to our boiling broth.
The thinly sliced raw meat is delivered separately to the table, by the waiter for as long as you are hungry.

TIP: Take your time and try everything slowly, as there are so many different combinations.

For $25 per head, you can have all you can eat, of a variety of premium quality beef. The veggie bar seemed endless and the variety of seafood was no joke. All these for the one price per head. You get to have endless broth on a split shabu-shabu pot and enjoy to your hearts desire. Oh, some appetizers are also included. No guilty feeling on eating a lot of shabu-shabu. I think lunch is a little cheaper in price. Plan ahead because this new place is always full. We decided to sit and eat at the bar because the aroma of the place made me hungrier each minute we waited.
