The weather has been pretty miserable lately. The road is wet, sky gloomy, and laundry always damp and damned. However, this exact sort of pitiful weather is perfect for a bowl of hot porridge or some steamboat goodness. Which is why Cheesie and I decided to head to Nagomi Shabu Shabu at Jaya 33 for the most fitting dinner last Friday.

we ordered the duck set

In addition to Shabu Shabu with various type of meat (including Kobe beef), Nagomi also has a pretty comprehensive offering on fresh sashimi and sushi dishes. For the two of us, we ordered a duck shabu shabu set, sake deluxe maki (salmon roll with ebiko), and sake toro sashimi (salmon belly).

We chose the Nagomi soup, a miso based soup (I believe) for the shabu shabu. The duck shabu shabu set came with minced duck meat at the center holding a up a raw egg, sliced duck breast meat on the side, a bowl of rice rice, and a plate of raw vegetable, mushroom, tofu, and glass noodle. The sliced duck meat took only seconds to cook while the minced version had to sit in the boiling soup for a little longer, but they were delicious. I particularly like to have it with the foyu (fermented tofu) instead of the chili or soya sauce.

The sake deluxe sushi maki tasted very good too, with huge chunk of salmon and generous amount of ebiko (shrimp eggs) covering the roll. It was very good to lace our stomach with while waiting for the soup to boil.

Sake toro sashimi, of course, didn’t disappoint either. There were six slabs of salmon belly sashimi with a hint of the distinctive silver belly skin lining visible. As with tuna, the belly meat is most fatty and flavorful. The buttery texture with some wasabi and a dip of soyu, bliss!

awesome shabu shabu porridge!

Just as we were almost done with all the raw items, Cheesie suggested that we make porridge out of the now very flavorful soup base. It was an ingenious idea I’ve never gave a thought before!

We poured the rice into the steamboat; threw in the last pieces of meat, vegetable, and tofu; turn up the heat, and stirred. The rice swam lazily in the soup, but in about 15-20 minutes, the once solid rice fused with the soup and became porridge. It actually tasted so good with the concentrated flavor from the reduced shabu shabu soup. You should give it a try sometimes!

It was certainly a very good dinner. The bill came to RM 90.30 with the set costing RM 31, sushi and sashimi RM 16 & RM 25 respectively. Though not exactly cheap, I would rate the price as pretty reasonable, a place I would revisit.

Nagomi are can be found at Hartamas Shopping Complex and Menara Hap Seng too. Their website is here.
