In January, I tagged along May to Singapore while she was having 2 full day training there. As I was ditched for dinner as May need to entertain her colleagues, I met up an old friend to catch up and have dinner. She brought me to this place called Suki-Ya, which serves Shabu Shabu, buffet style.
Set dinner is at SGD19.90, but you can also opt for unlimited drinks (Sake that is) for SGD24.90. I think it’s one of the best deal to have happy hour!
On each table, customers are given the instruction on how to enjoy delicious Sukiyaki (the proper way that is). The instruction is pretty straight forward too. Select from a following 3 soup base, and then select your meat and off you go.
We selected the Kimchi and Sukiyaki soup base, so that we can experienced the spiciness of the kimchi as well as the authentic taste of Sukiyaki.
While waiting for the soup to heat up, we proceed to the buffet counter to select the additional that we want.
Selection is pretty standard like our steamboat ingredients, but they do have a few special ones as well.
One of it is some sort of a fish ball with cheese fillings, quite a mouthful and good too.
There’s also 3 selection of meat (beef, pork and chicken) that we can choose from, and we can reorder as we ran out of it.
The instructions leaflet advised us that we should always put in the hard vegetables first (leeks, cabbages, spring onions, etc.), wait for the soup to boil, before putting in the rest of the ingredients.
Raw eggs are used as a dipping sauce. I wasn’t aware of that because usually we just put the egg into the pot as well. Once the meat is cooked, dip it into the eggs to enjoy.
A pot full of food! The leaflet also indicated that at the end of the meal, we can actually add udon/rice onto the soup so that we can enjoy the rich flavor of the stock but by that time, we were already full to the brim.
Suki-Ya is definitely a nice experience and I can’t recall any restaurant here in KL that serves the same thing. So hopefully they will decide to open 1 up here in KL soon.
