Yuu Shabu Shabu Cafe 勝火锅小品餐厅 @ Hutton Lane, Georgetown, Penang.

Every diner gets their own hotpot at Yuu Shabu Shabu Cafe 勝火锅小品餐厅, a new hotpot joint at Hutton Lane (a stone's throw distance away from New World Park)... so there will be no fighting over which soup bases to order or any fuss over the toppings. The brand is not new in Malaysia and has presence in other states; this is their first outlet in Penang though. With 7 types of Japanese-inspired soup bases available- whether spicy or non-spicy, everyone gets to choose their own desired soup bases. The Shabu-Shabu set is fixed but add-ons are available at additional costs. The Express Lunch Set is more wallet-friendly though the usual Shabu-Shabu Set offers better variety. 


Beef Shabu Shabu Express Set (Rm 24.90) with Miso Soup Base


Pork Shabu Shabu Express Set (Rm 19.90) With Spicy Japanese Pork Bone Soup Base


Chicken Gyoza (Rm 7.50/ Add On)


Tori Karaage (Rm 12.90)


Almond Ice Cream Apple Pie (Rm 11.90)

We've only managed to try their Express Lunch Set- there were already some Chinese Cabbage, Mushrooms and Carrots in the soup bases while an additional plate of meat, fish paste noodles and a fish ball as well as a choice of carbohydrates (choose from Instant Noodles, Glass Noodles and Rice). Both the Spicy Japanese Pork Bone Soup Base and Miso Soup Base were good- well seasoned and the flavors were up to expectation. The dipping sauce however, was a lackluster. We were expecting more choices but only Sesame sauce and Chili sauce. Also, we discovered thirst after the meal, not too sure if it was due to the "seasonings".
