Nagomi Shabu-Shabu Buffet @ Menara Hap Seng

It was a few weeks ago when I was given a privilege to try out the Nagomi Shabu-Shabu Buffet which is newly launched by Nagomi Japanese Restaurant which is located at Menara Hap Seng in Kuala Lumpur. Some of you might not be familiar with the term 'shabu-shabu' so let me briefly tell you what it is all about. Shabu-shabu, syabu-syabu, hot pot or also known as steamboat a way of cooking your own fresh food in a big pot of hot soup. What's so different about this Japanese variation of the hot pot compared to the one we normally had in a Chinese hot pot restaurant is that each customers will get their own hot pot for preference and also hygiene purposes I supposed. If you do not eat lamb or any other meat/seafood, you can choose not to dump it into the hot pot. You can dump in anything or whatever you want! That's the best thing to experience when you are having shabu-shabu.

Let's take a look at the dining environment Nagomi Japanese Restaurant.

Simple yet comfortable.

There are plenty of seats to cater a few individuals to large groups. There's also a VIP room.

Fortune cat welcome you...


There's a wide range of fresh food from vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, meat, seafood, noodles to even assorted type of sushi and fried food for those who want to have a quick bite while waiting for their food to cook in the hot pot. Different type of sauces are being provided to suit the taste bud of every single customer who are dining in this restaurant.

My selection of food of the evening...

Let me tell you a funny story, this live mini lobster was actually still moving around (as seen in the picture above). So when I dumped it inside the hot pot, the mini lobster reacted and I actually splashed by a few drops of soup from the hot pot xD true story!

So the second picture is the mini lobster resting inside a bowl of nice hot soup! :D

The hot pot of 'shabu-shabu'.

They also serve Norwegian Salmon but it's limited! So act fast when they are serving it! :D
On the top left side is the lamb, beef and assorted fresh food.

My comments: What I can say is that they have quite a wide range of fresh seafood and the restaurant is pretty comfortable but it will be good if they provide bigger plates for the customer to take the food and also ice-cream is a plus as dessert. :)
