Ben shabu 犇極鍋物
No.2, Lane 102, Sec.1, Anhe Rd., 安和路一段102巷2號
I can’t believe how often I come to this place, lost the count but looking back at my calender looks like I’m there every week.
Ben Shabu located next to
last year the owner renovate the used to be VIP rooms into this luxe shabu restaurant.
Most of the hot pot place in Asian have a strong soup base which overpower the amour of the indigents. For Ben Shabu they adopt the Japanese style dashi stock (kombu & Katsuobushi) which can bring out the true flavor of the luxury ingredients.
they have a few choices for appetizers, for me steam egg with truffle rulz
They provide great table-side services, basically all you have to do is put the food into your mouth and that’s it.
their fresh looking vegetable platter, thumb ups for it especially the fish cakes and tomato.
look at the meat, drooling… and the shrimp paste is another must have .
Their waiters come help you cook most of seafood and veggie and leave the meat for you, may b I am a slow eater so from time to time they come and help me with the meat too. According to their beef tastes the best when it’s medium which is bloody true.
lastly, they turn the soup base to porridge.. this this this leave me speechless no matter how full I am ……. divine.
I loved Ben Teppanyaki before I discover Ben Shabu, or may be should I said I didn’t go back to Teppanyaki after the incident on my friend’s birthday. Ben Shabu provide top notch food and service.
A must go in Taipei after DaWan Yakiniku
