SHABU SHABU: 日暮里

Big thanks to the recommendation of local friends, since I would never had been able to find such a great shabu shabu restaurant. Though日暮里 (ri mu li) is located in a small alley around Da-an Road, not exactly the best location, every table was filled up very quickly at dinner time. It is strongly recommended for its food quality. Great restaurant for a dinner with a small group of friends or family. Be sure to make a reservation if you plan on going. Also, there is no minimum charge for each person, but there is a 10% service fee.

THE BIG BASIC PLATE
The ingredients are pretty standard for a shabu shabu restaurant: cabbage, green veggies, mushroom, tomato, fish ball, tofu, sliced tomato, sliced pumpkin, noodles etc. I'd like to emphasize that the QUALITY certainly outwins the quantity.




SLICED SIRLOIN BEEF (280NT/SET)
Very juicy, very chewy. Certainly tastes the best when you cook it for fifteen seconds. The chewiness of the beef goes away when it's overcooked, so be aware of the time. Also, the serving size is great for one very-hungry person, or two 80% hungry people.


SLICED KOBE PORK (280NT/SET)
Thicker and chewier than sirloin beef. One reason why I would strongly recommend it is that the meat was processed REALLY WELL: there was absolutely no raw taste of pork. A perfect match to the special shabu shabu sauce. Definitely give it a try!


SLICED FISH (160NT/6PCS)
A myth about shabu shabu is that you would gain 1 kilo the day after. If you prefer a healthier diet, I would highly recommend fish instead of a large plate of meat. I would agree that the size of the fish plate is fairly small, but it would be definitely enough if you order other small plates such as tofu and cabbage. Also highly recommended if you are saving some room for dessert.

SMALLER DISHES FOR 60NT
Order extra for your favorite shabu shabu ingredients! Veggies and tofu for the win.
