For more than 20 years, Ginza Shabutsu has been a local favourite for shabu-shabu (Japanese hotpot), thanks to its fresh ingredients and excellent value for money. At lunch, ¥880 will get you a plate of finely sliced pork, beef, duck or beef tongue; a combination of two is ¥1,100. The staff will fire up your pot of light chicken broth, then bring you your banquet: a plate piled high with tofu, cabbage, carrots and bean noodles; an array of condiments like ponzu (citrus and soy dipping sauce) and the signature sesame sauce made from no fewer than 20 ingredients; your selected meat; and a bowl of steamed rice. To eat, swish the ingredients through the boiling stock until they’re cooked.
At dinner, courses start from ¥3,700.
