After eating lots of junks here in Seoul so far ( like 족발, 갈매기살 and fried chicken) it was time to introduce you some heathly food today 🙂 It is called Shabu Shabu ( 샤브샤브 ) which is, of course just in my humble opionion, a great eating experience for everyone from the Western countries. Shabu Shabu has its roots in Japan and is a dish where you cook meat and lots of vegetables in a huge cooking pot. Although i am not the big fan of veggies i deeply love 샤브샤브 !! Eating 샤브샤브 is like getting a three-course meal, for starters cooking the veggies and the meat, then cooking the noodles and enjoying the soup and at the end you are eating a rice dish. Really, really yummy!

At the very beginning you put all the vegetables inside the cooking pot and let it cook for a while. After a few minutes you can already start to grab some meat and put it inside the bowl. It’s tricky at the beginning to keep the meat on the chopstick but with some practise it won’t be a problem. Because the meat is cut into razor-thin slices it is done very quickly. You grab some onions and cabbage and eat it together with the meat.

After finishing the meat and the veggies you are putting some noodles inside the bowl and let it cook again for a while. Thanks to the vegetables and meat the soup gets a great taste and is truly delicious! My favorite part of Shabu Shabu. 맛있어요!

At the end you will get some rice and an egg, which will be mixed with the leftover soup. If you were not full yet, you will be probably now 😛

샤브샤브 definitely counts to my favorite dishes here in South Korea, although it isn’t a original Korean dish. Perhaps one day i will get the chance to taste the real Japanese version of it, this would be great. You can find Shabu Shabu restaurants on every corner here in Seoul, at least here in Sinchon 😀 So give it a try, it is a great eating experience! You won’t be disappointed!
