The rainy weather is perfect for steamboat meals and one of my favourite is the Japanese Shabu Shabu. What's even better is if there is a
n excuse reason to feast over a sumptuous Shabu Shabu meal. So thank you and happy birthday, Pinky Piggu! Moohehe.
We happy trio headed to On-Yasai at CHIJMES after seeing a wagyu promo on Facebook. But alas. What was offered was different from what we thought the promo is about. I guess Japlish did us in.
Thankfully, their normal Shabu Shabu dinner buffet ($39.90/adult) was pretty good! It offered a small selection of sushi and tempura which were great for keeping hunger at bay while waiting for the soup in the pot to boil. Speaking of soup, choose from a few different types of broths including Dashi, Miso, Golden Truffle and Soy Bean Broth.
Ultimately, the star here has to be the meats. Moore specifically, the beef. Yea, I'm bovine-ly biased. Moohehe. The beef chuck roll was tender and nicely beefy while the karubi (short ribs) was long, thicker slices with a satisfying bite, streaks of marbling and a deeper flavour. They were so good I hardly used the dipping sauce I assembled from the array of condiments, such as XO sauce, sesame sauce, ponzu etc, available.
I will confirm plus chop be back! Beef! Beef! Beef! MOOHAHA.
