shabumaru | japanese hotpot

Japanese Hot Pot is a unique change of pace; the dining experience truly feels entirely different when you are cooking your own meal! 

The newly opened ShabuMaru is a chic and elegant space located in the Westin Copley Place Hotel, offering traditional shabu-shabu style cuisine. Here, shiny white subway tiles and leafy-green live wall installations surround copper bot laden heavy wood tables and a three sided bar facing an open kitchen. 

Choose a chicken or a vegetable based broth and the servers will take care to cater to your boiling soups water temperature so it is just right for cooking your razor-thin meats, like certified Miyazaki Waygu beef or Korobuta pork belly, and sushi-grade salmon, tuna, and yellowtail. These are complimented by a choice of rice or noodles, a mini tin bucket of fresh vegetables, plus signature condiments - a ponzu citrus-based soy sauce and a creamy sesame sauce. A selection of table-side condiments also awaits: garlic paste, scallions, daikon puree and chili oil will ensure a full and spicy flavor profile. Hotpot is all about designing taste sensations to suit your own palette. Everything was tasty, the one personal exception is that I preferred to eat the sushi grade fish raw - still it pairs wonderfully with the hot soups and a cold sake or a Sapporo.
