If you love long, ritualistic meals and believe that beef can be delicate, this will easily become a favorite restaurant. A pot of simmering water is lowered into the center of the table and customers cook their own food. Don't skimp on quality; get the prime beef. After all, the super-thin slices will receive the simplest treatment possible: dipped in the water, dabbed with sesame or ponzu sauce, and into your mouth. It's not all beef though. Each table must get at least two orders, and they come with mushrooms, tofu, cabbage, carrot slices, and watercress too. After all that, cook your noodles (egg and rice). You will be given small cups, with salt and pepper in it. Use some hot water to make a broth for the noodle course. At this point, you will be stuffed, but you'll still probably finish your ice cream, which is included. After midnight on Fridays and Saturday's, they cut their prices on shabu shabu and barbecue.
