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:

Experience Healthy Shabu Shabu at any of its following branches: Powerplant Mall, The Podium, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Galleria, SM North The Block, Alabang Town Center, Robinsons Midtown and Shangri-la Plaza Mall. For inquiries please call (632) 627-3721 or 672-3290.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Aileen! :) Looks really yummy.

    I've had shabu-shabu before but I've never been to Healthy Shabu Shabu. I will try this soon!

  2. Blog hopping! Nice blog that you have. Care to link exchange? I've added you to our blog page already. Have a nice day!

    hope to hear from you and that we could be friends^^,)

  3. WOW! Like to go and eat there! Cooking my own food is really a challenge for me. It's like Kublai Khan's when you got to choose the ingredients of your choice but their cook will take charge of cooking it.

  4. YUMM!!! Thanks for sharing. I might just have to improvise and do something like that at home!


  5. Hello, Aileen. I am very interested in getting a franchise of Healthy Shabu Shabu restaurant. How do I get in touch with Mrs. Candy Hwang?
