I was invited to Shabuya and Shochu Bar located at Vivo City to try some of their sushi as well as their Shabu Shabu.
Located at the first level of Vivo City, Shabuya and Shochu Bar is very easily accessible from Harbourfront MRT.
Here is the Aburi Wagyu Beef, Aburi Salmon Belly and Tuna Tataki. I really loved all of these. I found the beef sushi really special, the salmon belly was really fresh and I usually hate tuna but I actually liked the tuna tataki and would not mind having it again.
House Maki – This sushi is unique as it is made with purple rice which is a healthier option.
Fried Tempura Maki – I love tempura and maki, and combined, I think this is really special. I really liked it. Crispy sushi, imagine that! I highly recommend you try this for yourself.
Shabu Shabu – Onto the steamboat, there is a wide selection of premium ingredients you can choose for your steamboat including Wagyu Beef, Angus Beef, Tiger Prawns and more. Each person will get their own personal pot and you will get to choose your soup base. I choose Tonkotsu.
With your own personal hotpot, you will be able to control your pot using touch screen controls in front of it. There are 3 heat settings, low, medium and high. The pot is heated up through induction and if you are wondering, no, the table is not hot and will not burn you. Before you get your pot of soup, you will notice a red ring in front of your controls, that is where the heat is centralized at.
This is the Duck, Chicken and Lamb.
Here are the Mussels, Clams and Tiger Prawns.
There is also Cabbage, Carrots, Shitake, Enoki, Tau Pok, Tofu and so much more.
This is what my plate looked like at some point. My top 3 favourites from the steamboat has got to be the Angus Beef, Tiger Prawns and either the Mussels or the Lamb.
Apart from these, the buffet menu also includes all these. Let me highlight the top left of the menu because there is Salmon, Swordfish and Tuna sashimi which are all free flow!
At Shabuya and Shochu Bar, you can choose to have the premium shabu shabu buffet at $49.90++ or just take a seat at the sushi bar and watch the chef slice up your sashimi fresh before your eyes.
Shabuya and Shochu Bar is a part of the Creative Eateries group which also handles popular names such as Suki Ya, Rocku Yakiniku, Vineyard, Bangkok Jam and many more.
Though this shabu shabu is on the pricier side, you are really paying for the quality of your food.
