Plus One Shabu Shabu @ One Utama

What draw us into the restaurant was the buffet counter (at first, I thought they serve Shabu-Shabu Buffet), then I realized it was there for the 'bottomless' sauces. As soon as we stepped-in, we were greeted by a hong-kie woman who enthusiastically explained their specialty, set meals and soup base.

After placing our orders, we were left stranded with No food No drinks for almost an hour. All we had was our own-uniquely-mixed sauces (namely Satay, Sesame, Sze-Chuan, California?, garlic/spring onions and beef sauce)

and also some empty plates/bowls/stomachs... thanks to the waiter who did not process our orders %$#..

We had the water cress 'liong-sui' that comes in a jug (and a CArrot?) - very refreshing.

There are approx. 10 types of broth to choose from, we opted for the chew-chow (with salty vege, Yam and tomato),

the drunken-chicken (below), herbal soup and water-cress + centuryEgg/Pei-dan soup (recommended). The soup tasted all right, not too sure it's the sweetness from the Ajinomoto or it is the real broth..

The standard mix set (see below) is valued at 'round RM20, that includes, a scallop, a prawn, fish slices, chicken, pork, enoki mushrooms, bean-curd and vege. There are also sets which comes with extra seafood/ meat. In general, the food servings are fresh but a little pricey.

Besides Shabu-Shabu, there are also some HK hawker delicacy in the menu such as the Fried Fish Skin (ran out of stock - thank you Mr. Waiter)
P.S.: Remember to claim your PRAWNS @ RM1 for every RM50 spent in the restaurant.

I wouldn't consider a re-visit after having me to wait an hour for my meal. But with the RM12.90-RM15.90 Lunch Promo, I might go give it another shot.
