With a spate of Japanese eateries hitting the Orchard strip, it’s not surprising to see a hotpot joint muscling in on the action. The second outlet of Shabu Sai (Shabu means to swish your ingredients in a hotpot, while Sai refers to vegetables) offers pretty good value for money for a 60-item spread on its buffet table, including a ton of leafy greens, assorted meats wrapped in bamboo and paper-thin slivers of beef, chicken and pork that you cook in a selection of broths – think sukiyaki, a heavier tonkotsu version, as well as tomato and curry-based soups. There’s also a rotating soup base every two months, featuring special flavours such as spicy kimchi and yuzu salt.
Cost: Lunch $16.99-$19.99 (adults), $9.99 (children); Dinner $24.99-$29.99 (adults), $9.99 (children).
