Last week I went to have shabu-shabu buffet at non other than Nagomi Japanese Restaurant that started as a shabu-shabu specialist restaurant, which is now a full fledged Japanese restaurant that also offers other Japanese food. Shabu-shabu buffet only available at Nagomi Menara Hap Seng.
There are over 80 choices of raw ingredients to choose from for your shabu-shabu goodness. Also, you can choose your soup base from the available ginger, taban miso, kimuchi or the default Nagomi soup base. There are also no shortages of sauce to choose. There are goma sauce (sesame sauce), ponzu (citrus vinegar), Thai chili sauce. There are also a few dressing for your salad such as wafu dressing, shoyu dressing and Nyoya dressing. I was spoiled for choice.
The first thing that attracted me on the buffet spread is the live lobsters. It's the lobsters are still alive ready to be cooked in the hot soup. Careful when you pick a few and put on the plate because they will crawl out of the plate.
There are many choices of greens available. I especially love the shitake mushroom.
It's not shabu-shabu without thinly sliced meat that is cooked with just a few swipe in the boiling hot soup. You can choose beef, lamb shoulder, chicken or duck meat. Duck is an acquired taste though, even though the gamey taste is not that strong but still some people can't stand it at all. All the meat there are very fresh.
While waiting for your raw stuff to be cooked, you can attack the sushi first, there are a few choices of sushi available.
Also available are deep fried fish and calamari.
A seafood lover? No problem because there are fresh seafood like scallop, mussels, clams, prawns and crabs available. The size is quite presentable too and not those small small one.
My cooked live lobster. It's very fresh I can guarantee that lol.
It's not wagyu beef but the cut is very nice for shabu-shabu.
Lamb shoulder goes very well with goma sauce.
What's the price of this shabu-shabu buffet? It's only RM 32.80++!! It's freaking value for money. What's more during bonus hour the chef will cut up a fresh salmon to make sashimi and it's only available for that 1 hour, so when you heard the bell rang, quickly go and grab your salmon sashimi.
For those that likes to drink beer, then it's your lucky day because 5 bottles of Carlsberg are only selling for RM30++.
The buffet line is available on
