Cita Catellya



Shabu-shabu is a very popular choice among families and friends across Bangkok, especially on a cold and rainy day. This Japanese hot pot dish usually has thinly-sliced cuts of beef or pork stewing in a delicious broth with a mixture of vegetables; this combination packs a rich and flavourful punch with each bite. Not only does it warm up your belly, but it’s mouthwatering and nutritious as well.

If you are craving some shabu-shabu, you’ve come to the right article! Below, we have compiled 5 shabu restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious meal by yourself, with your friends, family, or even with your colleagues.
