10 Best Shabu Shabu in Singapore
Source: WOW! JAPAN

A Japanese hot pot dish that involves dipping skinny slices of meat (usually beef, pork, or chicken) in a pot of boiling soup base for just a few seconds, Shabu-Shabu is a popular dish that was first introduced in Japan in the 20th century.

Said to have originated from the traditional Chinese hot pot, “Shabu-Shabu” directly translates to “swish-swish”, the action you make when stirring ingredients around in the broth.

Yummmm.. for someone who loves all kinds of hotpot cuisines, just the thought of it already makes my mouth water!
