Shabu Shabu Gyu Jin

After a draining week, it’s finally FRIDAY!!! I decided to reward myself as well as take the opportunity to load my body with more proteins by enjoying an All-you-can-eat buffet at Shabu Shabu Gyu Jin at the 100AM outlet.

There are 3 types of courses offering different quality of beef along with varying duration. You can also choose between Shabu Shabu (choose from 5 types of dashi) or Sukiyaki.

We opted for the Australian-Wagyu course with kelp dashi and yuzu salt dashi. On each table, they provided 3 different sauces to pair with the meats: ponzu, gomadare (sesame), and spicy gomadare. I particularly enjoy the citrusy and refreshing ponzu sauce. There is also a vegetable counter filled with a good variety of greens – I especially liked Tang Oh~

The first round of meat served included Beef, Pork Ribs, Pork Loin and Chicken Thighs. I must say we were really satisfied with the quality of the meat. However when we asked for additional portions of the beef, we were made to wait quite a while for it to be served. In addition, the top-up ones were obviously of a different quality. I didn’t even bother to take a picture of the 2nd round of meat but you could imagine the beef slices to be served on the tray like “sails” as they were visibly more frozen and harder… Although we tried to let it defrost longer…sadly they were not as good as the ones served earlier…We even had to ask the staff whether we were served “Australian Wagyu” and why it was different from earlier round? We didn’t get a good explanation except the confirmation that yes those were Australian Wagyu

Despite the not-so-satisfactory 2nd round of beef served, we felt that for the price we paid – the quality of meat served was still quite value-for-money. At least we made the right choice not to pay $72.90 for Japanese First Class Wagyu…
