Our visit to Plus One Shabu-Shabu came to us with a surprise. On our previous attempt, we knew nothing about the place. This time, my friend found out something about them, that we could have 2 types of soup to go with. Besides, he tempted me with the spicy (麻辣) soup, knowing that I’m a sucker for spicy food. So I agreed to him without much objections.
… see that marble table?
… I asked him to make the decision, leave the calculative brain at home. I just wanted to eat. This was what we get in our set.
… the spicy (麻辣) soup. It was more oily than spicy actually.
… beef slice.
… 4 of the many condiments readily available to you. But you have to go get them from the condiment counter.
… I guess this must be lamb.
… fish meat, obviously. (I hope I guessed it right.)
… another type of fish… meat. *cringe*
… he wanted to try the meat ball. Little did he know, they were quite big in size. His excuse was, “I thought they are just like standard fish balls size.”
I had to unbuckle my pants already.
… he even ordered a Maggi noodle! *pengsan*
My expectation was on the spicy soup, but it turns out to be really bad. The steam coming out from the soup could paralyze my nose already. I guess they put too much dried chilies in it and not enough salty. It was very oily though. Which reminds me of 咖喱油火鍋. Fortunately, the plain soup was better. So I was busy stealing my friend’s soup (because the pot was over his side) and ignoring mine. The meat were nicely cut up and cooked up easily, so there isn’t much waiting. The condiments were abundance.
I found my favourite sesame oil. I thought I’d have a blast of my lifetime, but it turns out to be the other way round. I do not understand why, the sesame oil was lacked of fragrance, and worse, it was bitter! It was the first time I pushed the sesame oil away in my life. In the end, it was fun eating there, if it weren’t for the over oily soup. The bills turns up to be around RM110 for the 2 of us. Pretty steep though. My friend can’t stop complaining about the heavy price tag. Perhaps I should do the ordering next time, and bring along my calculative brain. There are still plenty of soup types that yet to be tried.
