When you come to Kawaguchiko, it’s harder to find restaurant than Tokyo or other big city.
In this blog, I’d like to introduce some restaurants for you.
I’m happy if it would be a little help to find your favorite food in Kawaguchiko!
Today I’ll show you a healthy and delicious shabu-shabu restaurant!
What is shabu-shabu?
Shabu-shabu is one of famous food in Japan
which is a hot pot dish consisting of thinly sliced tender meat and lots of fresh vegetables.
The difference between shabu-shabu and other hot pot dish is
ingredients of other hot pot dish are cooked together before serving
but ingredients of shabu-shabu are served raw and cooked by ourselves, and it’s similar to fondue.
In addition, usually other hot pot dish is seasoned in advance,
but we dip into some sauces individually for shabu-shabu.
It is said that shabu-shabu is named from Japanese onomatopoeia “shabu shabu” meaning
“swish swish” which describes each piece of meat is lightly swished in boiling broth before eating.
Hayashi is shabu-shabu restaurant.
They have “buta-shabu” meaning pork shabu-shabu and “gyu-shabu” meaning beef shabu-shabu.
They serve Fujigane pork and Fujizakura pork which grew at the foot of Mt.Fuji.
Also, their beef is selected Wagyu beef from Miyazaki prefecture.
- Fujigane pork shabu-shabu：1980 yen~
- Fujizakura pork shabu-shabu：2380 yen~
- Wagyu beef shabu-shabu：2380 yen~
- Premium wagyu beef shabu-shabu：3980 yen~
I recommend chicken cartilage ball.
I think chicken cartilage is not famous as a food in other countries,
but you may enjoy this crunchy texture.
Stir it and make balls with spoons and put them in a pot. ↓
Except shabu-shabu, you can also enjoy Japanese appetizer!
