Healthy Shabu Shabu 101

Candy Hwang, owner of Healthy Shabu-Shabu explained during dinner that shabu-shabu has its beginnings from the time of Genghis Khan. It was war time and they wanted to be able to feed soldiers in a fast, economical and nutritious way. Fast forward to the present and here in Manila, Candy Hwang has set-up several branches of her "Healthy Shabu-Shabu" restaurant.

It was a different experience for me. I have to admit I almost never prepare my own food (unless it's just a sandwich) and it is quite rare to see me in front of a stove (I'd rather bake!), so seeing the hot pot and all the raw ingredients actually made me nervous. I was quite hungry as well and was worried that I might end up burning my food!

I did not have to worry after all since eating the shabu-shabu way isn't as hard as it looks. Here's my video blog about the experience:
