'Twas a Friday evening and we're stuck at Menara Hap Seng due to the crazy traffic. To wait off, we decided to find a place to eat in the building. The thing about the eateries in this place is, they're usually packed during lunch hours on weekdays but come evening, things can be pretty quiet which is perfect.
Got Capt'n Hook to checked out the menu at Nagomi Shabu-shabu and Sushi Bar and he's game to try this out since I've been there before. It will also be BoiBoi's first experience having to cook his own food heh.
As I'm aware that the individual portion can be quite daunting for a small eater, so we ordered two sets (RM15 each) which came with your choice of soup that came in individual pot and a plate of vegetables that contains a raw egg, a portion of noodles (choice of ramen and udon) silken tofu, shitake mushrooms, spring onions, carrot slices, leeks and half a head of cabbage. Capt'n Hook asked for the Nagomi signature soup which I find it to be a better choice than the chicken soup that BoiBoi had asked for. The pot are placed on induction cooker which is good as you can control the heat yourself and won't generate extra heat other than the boiling soup in the cast iron pot.
We have platters of ribeye (RM18 for 150g) and chicken (RM10 for 150g) that have a portion of minced meat with a cracked quail egg in the centre where the waitress will mix them up and form 2 meatballs as seen here. 2 portions of enoki mushrooms (RM3 each) as they have ran out of oyster mushrooms.
Am sure you would think how come we've ordered so little but seriously they're more than enough for the 3 of us. We chucked in the vegetables then swish our meat with our chopsticks, chuck onto the dips and slurp the noodles up. BoiBoi had fun removing the food his pair of chopsticks, a skill that he had only recently picked up, until he really had had enough of the food. There are 3 types of dips served namely peanut, chilli and soy sauce. Loved the tangy chilli sauce and the peanut sauce as well but can a bit cloying when one is full.
Our meal with 2 cups of refillable ocha (RM2.50 each) and one glass of orange juice (RM9, freshly squeezed) plus 5% Government tax and 10% service charge came up to RM89.70.
