Shabu-Shabu: The Tokyo Pot

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.
