Eat Out: Shabu Sai

Do you like my new template? Thought this is neater and clean cut. Pardon me for not posting this earlier as I was busy with my own holiday trip and also a filming commitment.

I was at Shabu Sai for a food tasting session. Guess you must have heard of this restaurant? Their first outlet is at Causeway Point(opened in Dec 12). I went to their second outlet, which is at Orchard Central(opened in May 13).

I like the fact that the price is very affordable and value for money. For example, per pax $16.99++, you get to experience a sumptuous steamboat buffet lunch.

There are 7 soup bases to choose from, and every 2 months a special soup base will be featured. For May-June 2013(till 30 June 13), on top of the 6 soup bases: Seaweed, Sukiyaki, spicy, curry, tonkatsu and tomato soup(as menu below), you can also choose Yuzu Salt Beauty Hotpot soup base. This is very suitable for the ladies as this soup is full of collagen and you get to taste the freshness from the Yuzu. For July-Aug, do check out their special soup base- Seafood Shoyu.

如果你喜欢吃火锅,你一定会喜欢这家日式自助火锅餐馆-Shabu Sai.这里有多达7种汤底让你选,6月份还有独特柚子美容汤底可选择,让你的皮肤水挡挡。价格也很合理,周日午餐时间,每人才$16。99++。你除了可以吃到无限供应的新鲜肉类:牛肉片、猪肉片和鸡肉片,还可以自己挑新鲜海鲜如虾、淡菜、墨鱼,面类、蔬菜和菇类。我很喜欢装在竹筒的牛肉胶和鱼胶。牛肉胶腌得很入味,鱼胶则非常嫩滑。你非吃不可!




If you like to try something special, you can choose curry soup base or the tomato soup base. I like both, but you may find it too rich after awhile as it absorb all the sweetness from the ingredients. I highly recommend the Sukiyaki soup base as it is clear but yet capture all the sweetness from the ingredients. Means汤会越喝越甜且不腻。and it complement all the ingredients especially the thinly sliced white radish, vegetable and mushroom very well. With this soup base, You don't even need to dip any sauce!

I also like the fact that you can order the free flow fresh meat(thinly sliced pork, chicken and pork) you like and the waiter will serve to you.

On top of that, you can choose other ingredients from the buffet counter. Don't miss the signature minced beef paste and fish paste served in bamboo. The bamboo has anti bacterial properties that protect the freshness of the meat.
I loved the well marinated beef paste, so flavorful.

The buffet counter also have a spread of fresh prawn, mussels, squid, salmon rice, udon, soba, vegetables, mushrooms, sushi etc.

As for the dip, you can mix and match the garnish and sauce to your liking. If you want to eat like a Japanese, you can choose the ponzu sauce or the sesame sauce. For me, I like to mix and match to my liking, I added sesame paste, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, abit of ginger, fried onion, and alot of coriander leaves.

If you pay additional $1.99++, you get free flow drinks including soft drinks, hot green tea, hot barley tea and soft ice cream.
