Kurobuta Shabu Shabu from Sho Teppan

Kurobuta Shabu Shabu

I had always been kinda curious about this place ever since ION Orchard opened (2 Orchard Turn #B3-19, 6509-9969). But I never went in since I wasn't convinced that it would be any good; they strangely used those black iron pots on those individual hot plates even if you weren't ordering nabe. Still, we caved into curiosity tonight and came down here.

The good thing was that the meat was better than I thought it would be, with its thick cuts of kurobuta fat being arguably better than Tampopo's rendition. But they put the veggies into the pot by default, and didn't provide any ponzu sauce either. No, it's nothing that I'm likely to come back for, even if it was cheap. When I realized later that this was from the guys at Tajimaya, it all made sense.

I went to Kiraku at 55 Market street months back for their shabu shabu and it wasn't bad. They also had kurobuta pork and wagyu beef, the beef was really tender and fatty.
