Shabu Shabu/Hot Pot
ugh i go to school in LA and have become obsessed with shabu shabu (its all over little tokyo there, the best one is called Shabu Shabu House if anyone ever ventures out there) and when i come home for breaks i CRAVE shabu shabu but no one has it here!
i saw that it was an option on Fugi Mountain's menu, in bryn mawr, but the shabu shabu places i'm used to serve Shabu Shabu and ONLY Shabu Shabu, so its all they do and you know it's good! im so upset, but apparently its pretty easy to make at home, all you need is the right cuts of thinly sliced beef, a boiling pot, the various vegetables (bok choi, carrots, scalions) you need thick noodles and steamed rice, lots of minced garlic, soy sauce, and the two dipping sauces for which recipes can be found online. i think i'm going to try it, ill let you know how it goes!
