This week's post is on one of my favourite eating places.

It is one of the restaurants under Creative Eateries and they have outlets at both Raffles City Shopping Centre and ION Orchard. I have visited both outlets and seriously, I prefer the one at Raffles City. Although booth seats can only be found at the ION outlet, personally, I feel that the service and ambience at Raffles City is much better.

Looking through the menu, I was spoilt for choice... Should I have teppanyaki? nabe? or yakimeshi? after much thought, I chose to have Shabu Shabu. They have a three choices of soup base namely, Sukiyaki, Shabu Shabu and Kimuchi-miso. You could choose between having Seafood, Black Angus, Wagyu Beef, Marbled Pork, Kurobuta Pork, Salmon, Chicken or Scallop for your choice of Nabe.

My choice is ... I shall tell you in a while. Meanwhile, it is time to start preparing for the meal. Let me check out the condiments.

They usually serve peanut sauce when you order the Nabe but I prefer to have my Shabu Shabu dipped in the Teppanyaki sauce.

This is the Teppanyaki sauce that I mentioned. The taste of this dip is one that is richly flavoured. I have no idea what is in it but it seems to me that there is some bean paste in it. Anyway, what matters most to me is that it really really tastes good.
Kurobuta Pork Shabu Shabu @ $16.90++

Here comes my Shabu Shabu!! Yummy... I love Kurobuta Pork! So Kurobuta pork comes from Berkshires, which originated from England. They are now bred in a few countries in the world including Japan. Also, their meat are juicy, flavourful, tender and heavily marbled. So I guess you would have figured out by now that I ordered a Kurobuta Pork Shabu Shabu. My take on this is MUST TRY!!

My firiend ordered the Chicken Yakimeshi. It is actually Japanese-styled fried rice, they have shredded carrots in there, together with small slices of Shitake mushrooms and generous amount of chicken in there. The taste? Bursting with flavour. GOOD TO TRY! Personally, I like it but as compared to Teppanyaki, I prefer the latter. I can't remember the price but I believe it is probably between $9.90 & $12.90.

* Note: The Chicken Yakimeshi does not have crab sticks in them. We had them because we ordered a side order of crab sticks @ $1.90++ and added them in.

Here, we ordered an additional portion of Marbled Pork @ $5.90++ to share. Green tea can be ordered hot or iced @ $1.90++ and is free flow. It was indeed a good meal. We all deserve a good meal after a long day's work.

This is one of my favourite dinner places to date. My dining experiences there have always been pleasant except once at ION. I was really quite pissed off at that time. Overall, I think that the ambience is cozy, food is GOOD and service is dependable. So yeah... go check it out if you haven't done so.
