Conveniently located on South Jakarta’s prime area, this brand new shabu shabu eatery is setting a new crowd with menu that offers more than just beef.
Amuch as I can’t help to not remember its somewhat similarity in name with Chef Tetsuya Wakuda’s Waku Ghin; of course Shabu Ghin is different in its entirety. Reaching Shabu Ghin nowadays may be quite a challenge, due to the road construction on Jalan Wolter Monginsidi, but it definitely won’t hurt to dig in for a good treat once in a while.
All furnished and ready to accept a moderate amount of crowd, Shabu Ghin prepares more than just its sumptuous offering with beef. One particular remark that I must credit for Shabu Ghin is its seriousness with the side dishes.
Oftentimes, we would like to accompany our beef with more than just fresh vegetables and for that, Shabu Ghin has prepared for the indulging fusion sushi rolls, stir-fried japchae and even ramen Bolognese.Additionally, a series of dipping sauces like the Genghis Khan or ponzu are all ready at your disposal.
Not just that, fried rice and donburi are also available here. Drinks are also free-flow and varied from just the simplest ocha and up to soft drinks, coffee, and a bit of dessert from the sundae machine.
After a bit of serious tasting, each ultimately bears a good quality or as one might say, they are not treated by Shabu Ghin only as a byproduct but a valuable commodity to complement the beef and the soup.
The main stars such as the beef and variety of choices with the soup are what make Shabu Ghin very interesting. Three types of beef came in with excellent quality; starting from the restaurant’s special beef, US Premium, and up to the wagyu with its luscious marbling.
There are five different kinds of soup that you can choose here. Each table is equipped with a personal induction stove for the hot pot. Therefore, coming in groups will enable you to sample different soups at the same time.
For this, I personally prefer the umami and spicy tonyu soup made from soya beans which work so well with the beef. However, other soups such as the original konbu (seaweed), chicken, seafood and sukiyaki have their own strength and characters which may work better with your preference.
