Another unique way of cooking is through hot pot though it was already performed a long time ago, It is good to know that there are still adopting this method as a new way of enjoying dishes right in front of our tables. And that is the Shabu shabu way ok cooking
“Shabu-shabu (しゃぶしゃぶ , also spelled syabu-syabu?) is a Japanese variant of hot pot. The name shabu-shabu is derived from the “swish swish” sound of cooking the meat in the pot”
Located right in the City of Cebu, you will immediately tell the way the food is served or cooked. Yes, you will be the one to perform the cooking similar to yakiniku way, but instead of grilled food. You wil be provided with the customized pot in the table and provided with te ingredients.
You can choose a variety of ingredients (mostly vegetables), though they have recommended packages depending on the number of people and preferences. It is mostly for large groups so I recommend bringing some of your friends when you come here.
There is a lot of variety in the ingredient choices so it really depends upon what you like. Prices are not the cheapest I should say, I mean it is for the higher class of consumers if you know what I mean.
You can also pick your choice of seasonings in another table, not really sure what I was picking (they should put a label ).
The mixture of ingredients depends on your choice, I mean the these are fresh ingredients so don’t really worry if the food will taste good, it will be fine. (as a first timer, it went well).

Overall, it was a good experience, though I could do more in terms of cooking it. The environment is clean and cozy, not that many tables, about 7 to 8 tables, glad we went early as the restaurant was full later that. The restaurant is located beside Sprockets Coffee Shop and has a big sign banner so you really shouldn’t miss it.
Price was a bit high for an average consumer, and don’t be shock if you will receive an additional charge (I guess for the table pot usage) for 50 pesos per person. Nevertheless, the experience was worth it. About the food taste which is really subjective because we are the one performing the cooking itself. I advice bringing someone who knows how to cook and mix the ingredients. Service is prompt and great. I recommend it if you are looking for your first shabu shabu experience.
