Hotpot or Steamboat Dinner At Restaurant Shabu-Shabu, Ipoh.

We came to know about this Restoran Shabu-Shabu quite some time ago but have never been until recently. Finally one Saturday evening, our friend remembered and wanted to try the buffet steamboat. We don't know what to expect as it was our first visit to this place.
We were there at about 7.15 pm and it was still bright.
The restaurant is at Jalan Gopeng and near to the Impiana Hotel.
We were informed that the tables in the air-conditioned room were all reserved and we had no choice but to accept the table allocated to us without the air-con.
We chose 2 types of soup base - chicken soup and seafood soup.
The ladies were busy picking the different foodstuffs for the table and I totally forgot to take snapshots of what we had picked. I only managed to take a few photos when I was seated.
Here are some seafood after being cooked such as prawns, crabs and some shellfish. You will have to request for the crabs and prawns from the servers.
Some crunchy deep fried fish paste dumplings.
They even have bbq skewered meat aka "satay"
We picked some beef and chicken satay.
Overall it was a wonderful steamboat dinner.
For senior citizens like us, we got to enjoy a cheaper rate @ RM 26.00.
2 days later, the rate was increased to RM 28.00
Shabu-shabu is a Chinese-Japanese nabemono hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water or chosen soup base.
I caught sight of this building left in ruins with creepers and filled with undergrowth. Another thing that caught my attention is the mini bicycle hanging under the big letter G.


But those who listen and don't obey are like a man

who builds a house without a foundation.

When the floods sweep down against that house,

it crumbles into a heap of ruins.

(Luke 6:49, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. This restaurant is beautiful! I love the old building covered with vines!! Wish I knew the story about the bike! I have seen bikes attached to outer building walls as decorations! Maybe that is what it was doing there.

    1. Sometimes, it is the tracing of the original owner that will be time consuming. Have a great day, Tom!
