Mr Shabu Shabu. A lunch review

By 15 April 2013 9

mr shabu shabu lunch sets

Mr Shabu Shabu nestles beneath Unilodge just off Childers Street in Civic West.

Barcham and I were attracted by the pleasant looking tables under the big Unilodge awning and the authentic sounding yet very affordable menu.

At 12.15 we were the only ones in, but it began to really fill up as we were leaving.

Impressively a complimentary pot of jasmine tea turned up at our table almost as soon as we had sat down.

I had the teriyaki steak set and Barcham went for the tonkatsu ramen.

The food arrived fast and was excellent. They really appeared to know what they were doing.

The green noodly seaweedy thing was particularly nice with some fresh chilli chopped fine in it. My steak had been seared under a very great heat before chopped fine.

Sit down lunch for two came out at a smidge below $30 and I’d happily go there again.

Going to Mr Shabu Shabu and getting something other than shabu shabu… unthinkable!

By the way, I’d be interested in a sub-$10 review of Fun Ma Cafe.

This is also a great place with kids, mine love the occasional dinner here, and it is priced well

Am I the only one who immediately thought of Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo when reading that title?

I’ll put it down to my one-track mind constantly relating almost everything I come across to The Simpsons and my distinct lack of knowledge about Japanese and Chinese cuisine.

Side note – what are those little wrap things in the top left bowl on Jonhboy’s tray? Looks like carrot and corn wrapped in cheese (although I’ll take a stab and guess that it’s bamboo or something rather than cheese).

No cheese.

It was more like a sliced up spring roll. Very tasty mind you.

Yeah, where’s the hot pot… damn it.

Talk about hot pot, anyone willing to do a review of the Korean Hot Pot place in Gungahlin, Hinder St?

I’ve eaten there twice. Both times it was a fresh, zesty, tasty and enjoyable experience. The Shabu Shabu is allot of work, but well worth it.

That’s the worst name I ever heard…
