Jiro Shabu (Japanese Steamboat) @ Damansara Uptown
Jiroshabu, it was on my must try list in Damansara Uptown for sometime but I don’t find a right partner to go with for Steamboat and also in the freaking hot weather, I was not in the mood for steamboat. But all of a sudden, it was raining in the evening and my boyfriend invited me for dinner so I thought it’s time for steamboat. Jiroshabu is located at Damansara Uptown. They serve Ala-Cate and set choices too. We were greeted at the entrance and the staff seated us in our reserved table. Thank god!! I made a reservation prior to my arrival as people were already waiting for the table when we arrived. It remains full house during our entire stay. The ambiance of the restaurant was good to enjoy steamboat. The table was big and spacious to enjoy steamboat. I ordered Pork Shabu and Chicken Shabu.
Each set comes with a drink (Hot or Cold Beverage), Choice of Soup, Choice of Noodles or Rice, Fruit and Lime Juice.
A bowl filled with 80% of Cabbage, 3 Slice of Veggie, ½ Crab Stick, ½ Sauage. 1 Cocktail Sauage, Quarter Corn, 1 Mushroom, 1 Fishball, ½ Tomato, 2 Slice of Pumpkin, 2 Fuk Chuk and A plate of Chicken. That’s all!! I feel its a kinda little portion for the price we paid but the quality of the soup was good, meat and veggie was fresh. Especially, their shredded cabbage was clean, fresh and crunchy. Its very rare to find steamboat that serve fresh veggie and meat.
We Choose Tom Yum Soup and Clear Soup as our soup base. Tom Yum has hot and sour flavour with fragrant spices and herbs. It is a good choice for spicy lovers.
Clear Chicken Soup was tasty. Chicken add richness to the soup and gives flavour to it. Best option for people who loves clear soup.
The meat was fresh (Chicken & Pork) so it does not require any additional sauce to go with.
Pork Shabu @ RM 26.90
Chicken Shabu @ RM 24.90
Good to end our steamboat with lime juice. It’s refreshing, cold, sweet & sourish at the same time.
It was a good dinner for us. If you don’t mind paying RM 26+ for fresh & limited ingredients and quality soup, you can most probably go for this restaurant but make sure to do reservation if you don’t wish to wait in the queue for your turn. The waiting time is about 20-30 minutes.
