Thousand Cranes Shabu-Shabu
2/F Greenbelt 3 Legaspi St., Legaspi Village, Makati City, Metro Manila
The only shabu-shabu place I know is located at Greenbelt 3. It has great ambiance. Even if you’re eating something hot, you won’t feel uncomfortable.
Service though is a bit blah coz there were only 4 staff that day. So there was only 1 manning the kitchen, 1 manning outside area, 1 manning the inner area & 1 manning the counter. How could they serve customers with over 15 tables & they were undermanned? tsk tsk!
Before our order arrived, the staff helped setup the cooking area and ingredients for sauce. I lovvveeeeeee sate sauce.
For those who don’t know how to cook, no worries!!! It’s easy! You just need to put the ingredients on the boiling soup, wait for a few minutes for it to be cooked and then you’re good 🙂
Here are what we ordered:
- Shrimp & Meat Shabu-Shabu (Php 570)
With Shrimp & Meat Set, you could choose chicken, fat beef or porkloin as your meat. We have chosen porkloin. By the way, you need to be attentive when you start putting your shrimp and meat in. To cook shrimp and meat, don’t let it stay more than a minute in the soup.
- All Balls Set (Php 400)
Different kinds of balls in this order: shrimp balls, squid balls, meat balls, even crab sticks! 🙂 If you just want pure & simple shabu shabu meal, then this is for you.
- Fresh Buko Juice (Php 70)
I still prefer Shabu-Shabu places that offer eat all you can. I think those are more affordable and we have more control as to what we’ll eat. For me, I would have preferred more porkloin and more shrimps!
And also, there will be less waste for those ingredients that we don’t like (or eat).
