A while back, I was extremely delighted to be try Ginza Unley's Wagyu, Shabu Shabu Buffet with some friends. (What a mouthful). Indeed, it was a generous buffet, with unlimited oysters, fresh prawns, fresh sashimi, and a lot of matcha ice cream at your service. We were even lucky enough to be presented with a sushi boat (not included in the buffet) from their front kitchen. Too spoilt for choice I'd say.
In case you weren't entirely aware of what "Shabu Shabu" actually meant, by definition, it is a Japanese dish whereby you place thinly sliced beef (such as wagyu) into flavoured, boiled water (evident in these images anyway).

I highly recommend experiencing such a dinner with a few of your friends if you've never had Shabu Shabu before. It's quite fun being able to cook for your own/ your loved ones. Although I am being a little sarcastic as it's not too difficult to place what you want into the broth and wait around for a couple of minutes, right? Then again, that's when the two terms, 'overcooked' and 'undercooked' come into regular play hey... Nevertheless, the overall ambiance, especially if you go during autumn/ winter will always be more delightful and cosy.
And if you're pondering on the price for this Shabu Shabu + seafood buffet, it is $49.90 per person. Itadakimasu!
