August 4th, 2016. There are many places to eat shabu shabu these days. We can go to the mall and pick our favourite place. Well, shabu shabu or sukiyaki is happening right now. And I love it. I believe it’s healthy and it will make my tummy very very overjoyed. And 2 days before, I got invited to come to try new menu from one famous shabu shabu place. Shabu Shabu Gen.
Shabu Shabu Gen, under Les Amis Group, opens an outlet in Jakarta. It offers a fine-dining shabu shabu. Of course it’s different from any other shabu shabu place in Jakarta, but they have their reason for making it a fine-dining. It’s all about quality. Located on 46th floor in The Plaza building, it also offers a reason to write in your social media, a “lunch with a view” caption. Actually, it is a fine-dining, but.. it’s a very friendly fine-dining. The people are sooooooo nice. Don’t forget the handsome chef. Executive Chef Komiyama Minoru. Coolest chef ever. *big grin*
Sauces for shabu-shabu: goma (Japanese sesame sauce), ponzu and yuzu. I love the goma and ponzu. As you can see, they have different pot for shabu shabu and sukiyaki.
Shabu Shabu Gen Premium Japanese Beef Tasting Menu 1.850k++ per pax
It’s a fresh starter. A bowl of salad, with a very light dressing. A good way to start your meaty lunch.
The yield grade refers to the ratio of meat to the total weight of the carcass, and is classified into 3 grades from A to C, with A providing a higher yield. The meat quality grade is classified into five grades from 1 to 5, based on four criteria: fat marbling; the colour and brightness of the meat; its firmness and texture; and the colour and brightness of the fat.
Kagoshima actually produces the highest quantity of beef that comes out of Japan, with almost 20% of Japanese wagyu originating here. Thanks to the temperate climate and the Japanese black cattle breed, the meat that comes from Kagoshima is known for its tenderness as well as its well-balanced marbling.

This is their new menu. At the foodtasting, we tried the A4 beef. Well, I love the broth and the beef, and the vegetables, and the yakimeshi. Oh, I love them all. If you don’t like to dip the beef into the egg yolk, you can choose to dip it in shabu shabu dippings. And you can cook the egg yolk with the yakimeshi. Delicious!!
