Shabu Shabu is an experiential dish. Before you get to enjoying this warm meal in your mouth, you have to labor a little. The idea of cooking your own food in a restaurant is actually a bit funny at first, but because restaurants give you access to choice ingredients and a nice dining atmosphere, it makes for a fun and interesting affair.

Shabu Shabu is best enjoyed in the company of friends and family, and in case your group plans to eat out in Shinjuku, here are 10 of the Best Shabu Shabu Restaurants in the area:

再跟大家分享一間在日本新宿吃到的好吃壽喜燒吃到飽✨其實我自已不太愛吃壽喜燒,因為覺得太鹹了😖不過這裡的鍋是鴛鴦鍋,一邊是壽喜燒,一邊是一般火鍋,我們選了豆漿鍋,清淡清淡比較適合我😋🍼
除了牛肉和豬肉盤,其他都是自助式的。很大一區的野菜市場有將近20種蔬菜豆腐蒟蒻之類的,另外還有生菜沙拉。醬料也有超多選擇,根據你點的火鍋他們也有建議的調配方法。還有漬物小菜,咖哩飯,年糕、烏龍麵和一些丸子餃子類。連甜點的冰淇淋口感口味都很特別!有紫蕃薯啊、鹹焦糖、蘋果和栗子。栗子口味還吃的到真的栗子喔!😍😍😍
啊對了,原來這裏是和momo paradise同一企業的高級版,非常推薦給胃是無底洞的人啦~😝 #Cleoの東京物語 #Cleo的不好吃不推

Shabu Shabu at Sururi.

Udon is great with Shabu Shabu and in Sururi, you get to have the best of both worlds. This restaurant is an Udon specialist that serves great hot pot too. Noodles are usually the “closer” to a Shabu Shabu dish. Meaning, you dunk the noodles into the leftover broth to finish off the meal. Slurp the two until the very last drop.
