gloria maris comes to mind. any other place you guys can recommend?

ping yang is good but a bit pricey...

you may try something equally good.. name is lau chan along mabini... try combination of chinese medicine soup and sate soup... yummy... and try their fried tao pao...

they only accept cash though.... price range for 4-5 people usually around 2-3k

Have you tried Tian-Tian along Pasay Road, near the corner of Makati Ave? It's more of a Taiwanese style hotpot, but it's delicious!

For real authentic shabu-shabu, I guess you'll have to go to a Japanese restaurant frequented by Japanese. IIRC, the shabu-shabu in Furusato is very authentic.

whats the difference between japanese, taiwanese, and the traditional style shabu shabu? :) like what kind of stuff do you order in furusato? sliced beef, pork, fresh wanton, etc etc?

i'm not sure bout the sanitary problem of lau chan but we frequent that place regularly and our stomachs are A ok...... so far at least hehehe.

i'd agree with gloria marie's hotpot.. yummy....

have you guys tried the hotpot of hapchan banawe..... soup is really tasty... the quality of food aint that good though... but heck.... the soup made it all worth while....

also, another inquiry, have you guys tried mixing your own sauce... like raw egg with a bowl of sate and minced fresh galic, a bowl of soy sauce, some freshly chopped chili and hmmm yen suay?

a friend of mine does that. just raw egg yolk and sate+garlic i think. not bad... but i still prefer the basic soy sauce+garlic+sate+chili yummm.. best "soy sauce" for me has to go to lau chan. i dont care much about the soup coz im not really into drinking soup... makes me all sweaty and uncomfy. :P

The term shabu-shabu is really Japanese in origin and refers to a boiling broth of fish or chicken stock where vegetables - usually leeks, chinese cabbage, onions, golden mushrooms, shitake mushrooms (sometimes oyster mushrooms), carrots and thin slices of beef are dipped and consumed. It is usually accompanied with two sauces - a soy and sake based dip, and a sesame seed sauce. This shouldn't be confused with another Japanese boiling pot dish- sukiyaki, which has a sweet soup stock based mirin and bonito.

There are many other variations of this type of cooking, and different countries call it different names. In Taiwan, they also have something similar, but it's only called hotpot (not shabu-shabu). There are more kinds of vegetables added, and a whole lot of meats from fish to chicken to beef to dumplings. They usually offer two kinds of broth - a clear one and a sate one. Each restaurant has it's special dipping sauce, but it's usually based on a Taiwanese barbecue sauce (which is available in some groceries - red bull brand is a silver can with a red lid), with different spices added - chili, garlic, etc, etc. depending on the resturant or if in a house, on the cook.

The restaurants that offer "shabu-shabu" in the RP is really offering the Taiwanese version.

Hope this helps.

i tried tong yang before.... errr.... for me, its too commercialized.. couldnt maintain the quality of food it used to serve... same with dong ya (in banawe which closed down already)

i gotta try out the fortune resto along t.kalaw some time... 50% off you say? hmmm....

but for me, i'd still rank lau chan as 1, gloria maries 2, ping yang 3...

hehehe

It's still mini shabu shabu for me. No MSG or anything that makes my head spin afterwards. And you don't have to share the big hotpot with everyone (which doesnt affect me, but the hygiene conscious type of people lang) because each one has his/her own hotpot, hence the term "mini".

What works for me is that the quality of food is really superbly fresh. Allergic kasi ako sa seafoods na not-so-fresh, nangangati ang labi at lalamunan ko. Mini shabu shabu is one place where i can fealessly attack the shrimps hehe! And the owner gave me a discount card so im all the more excited to eat there everytime i get the chance (10% lang, pero babaw naman ng kaligayahan ko eh hehe). :)

You can also try Sugi (expensive, but not as expensive as Furusato), but check the menu first. I don't recall ordering shabu-shabu there before but they have a very extensive variety of dishes. The other places might be more expensive than Furusato - Tsukiji, etc.

By the way, the servings of shabu-shabu in Japanese restaurants were meant to be shared so it's usually good for 2 to 4 people.

Is this the same as STEAMBOAT in SIngapore?

And if so where is the closest one that is?
