All-you-can-eat “shabushabu”

By Yoshi, December 1, 2010

I’m starving! = Onaka pekopeko (おなか ぺこぺこ)
I’m stuffed! = Onaka ippai (おなか いっぱい) * “Onaka” means “stomach”.

“Shabushabu” (しゃぶしゃぶ) is a Japanese dish of thin slices of raw meat (usually paper-thin slices of beef or pork) and raw vegetables cooked at table in a simmering pot of broth. The freshly cooked ingredients can be dipped into a variety of sauces provided for additional flavor.


The name is said to come from the sound that’s made as the meat is gently swished through the broth. Once the meat and vegetables have been cooked and eaten, the broth, sometimes with noodles or rice added, is then served.
“Onyasai” (温野菜, おんやさい) is a famous restaurant of “Shabushabu”. All-you-can-eat shabushabu for 2600 yen~ (90 min.). www.onyasai.com
