Never Had Better Shabu Shabu
Despite being someone who doesn't drink soup on any regular basis, I find myself wanting to come back to Shabu Sai every so often. There is one reason: the Tonkotsu Soup Base. After 45 minutes of boiling it together with leeks, Chinese cabbage, pork and mushrooms, it is unbeatable. That's right, you heard it here!
How this works is fairly straightforward. You decide if you want the normal buffet or the buffet with Wagyu beef. Then you decide on the soup base (Tonkotsu!), tell your server how many plates of chicken, pork and/or beef you want to start with and you're off! There is a buffet line of vegetables, noodles, sauces and, if you decide to add $1.99, you get unlimited drinks and ice cream, which happens to be pretty good!
Lunch is $14.99 and Dinner is $24.99, last I recall. There is a special option for dinner at the SImei branch (not sure about other branches), which is $17.99. For this option, you get everything listed above except beef, which some people are alright with.
The vegetables and meat here are all well-prepared and look fresh. I am a great fan of their sauces too! A little consideration, though. The servers tend to be a little busy, so you need a little time before you get hold of them. Once they are with you, however, they are friendly and accommodating.
Shabu Sai at Eastpoint Mall is my go-to Japanese hotpot restaurant. I've been to quite a few and they all have something missing. Writing about this is making me hanker for another visit. I think I will drop by again soon.
Affordable Prices for Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki
Shabu Sai is a Japanese Hot Pot restaurant that serves Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki at affordable prices!
With just $16.99+ for lunch, I get to enjoy a variety of pork, beef, chicken, vegetables, and other Japanese food such as Sushi! I really enjoy duo pots for steamboat, and at Shabu Sai, you get to enjoy 2 kinds of soup base at the same time! This gives me a chance to try more flavours. And if you and your friends have entirely different likings, you don't have to fight over a pot of soup, just order what you like for yourself!
Unless you are not very particular about the quality and taste of Sushi, I recommend that you save your stomach for the meat instead. The sushi isn't really up to my standard so after taking 1-2 pieces, I decided to go straight for my hotpot dishes.
The variety of the food served at Shabu Sai is considered a lot less compared to some other hotpot restaurants. In terms of the meat, I would say that Shabu Sai serves better quality beef. Sadly, the soup base at Shabu Sai didn't win my heart as it did not taste delicious to me. If I am really craving for affordable and nice beef, I wouldn't mind coming back here again! After all, the prices are really reasonable for a buffet. But if you're a big eater, I would suggest that you come on a weekday to avoid the time limit.
