Sam and I ate out last weekend in a fit of foolishness since we are poor as can be. What we discovered was a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant called The Tokyo Pot. It features shabu shabu, a type of eating we were unfamiliar with. I don’t know anyone who has tried it, but if you haven’t, it was definitely worth it.
The owner/manager was very cool. He offered to demonstrate how to eat so we could enjoy it. A friendly fellow named Dean. Atmosphere and good food; that’s what all restaurants really need.
So now we have a new restaurant and a new way of cooking. Hmm…
For homemade shabu shabu, all one would need is an electric skillet on the table. It sounds pretty simple – although I’m not sure how thinly I could slice the meat. I will be getting back to you all on this one.
