Shabu Shabu is one of Japanese type of hotpot food, it is also a famous food for tourism.
When you go to Shabu Shabu restaurant, you’ll have a pot of boiling water on your table and then the server will give plates of
vegetables, meat and pork. You can put the vegetable into the pot when the water is hot enough, but for the meat you have to pick it up with your chopstick, put it into the pot and swing it around a little bit for a few second before you pull it from the hotpot and eat it together with 2 types of sauce that was on the table.
I think it is one of the Japanese culture that the most delicious meat is the one that was consume in the most simplest way of cooking, For example other than the Shabu Shabu where you just put the meat in boiling water. Popular traditional Japanese dishes like Sushi or Sashimi also made from Raw Fishes that didn’t pass many process of cooking before it was serve to the customer.
It is also interesting that Japanese food are consider to be more healthy than other countries food, does that have anything to do with their simple way of cooking and eating?
