The last Shabu-shabu meal I had was over two years ago in Manila
So when Grace suggested Tong Yang Shabu-shabu & Grill for lunch
I immediately said yes without batting an eyelash
This restaurant is a cozy affair where seats are comfortable
The waiters are knowledgeable of their menu and attended to us warmly
Cooking what you ordered is a big challenge for most diners
And a helpful staff is a big-big plus for us
One of them even offered to do the grilling which we obliged
To make it easier for their customers to choose their shabu-shabu ingredients
Tong Yang created Set Meals that included noodles, vegetables, seafood and meat
With it were two kinds of cold salad — potato and macaroni
You’re also given the choice between the regular and spicy soup stock
Siempre, I opted for the spicy one to make my meal more challenging
The waiters were very helpful — they readily answered all my questions
I always find it “kwela” cooking your own meal right on your dining table
I was literally salivating because the smell was so inviting
That day, I was floored by the great-tasting shabu-shabu meal ever
Then were were the skewered part of our lunch
This time, one of their staff did the grilling for us
The fragrance of butter filled the restaurant as she readied the grill
All the meat (chicken, pork and beef) tasted tepanyaki-sweet
I loved the chicken most because it was the most tender
The pork ribs were also succulently good
It was the beef portions that I find lacking in tenderness
Over-all though, I still would recommend this set menu
Here’s a tip: Remind the waiter to put off the grill
Burnt butter gives a pungent smell always
