Just a quick post before I head to Sentosa for Adult Playground organised by a friend of mine. This was shabu-shabu at Seryna, which has a pretty affordable lunch set at about Y5000 which featured wagyu beef (look at that marbling) and crab!
The crab was good stuff, sweet and of good quality - and the trick is to blanch it in the shabu shabu water for about 2 minutes. The beef was very well-marbled as well.
A shout-out to the great sesame and ponzu dipping sauce - never knew the combination was so good.
(I'm never a big shabu-shabu fan since I much prefer the sweetness of a sukiyaki. This was good though).
Value for money: go during lunch, as the price skyrockets during dinner.
The view from the Shinjuku outlet, located ontop of the Sumimoto building - is fantastic too.
