Checked out another new place for lunch and dinner at Sunway Pyramid – 798 Shabu Shabu. Tucked away at the far end of Orange Atrium, this newly opened shabu-shabu restaurant may be difficult to locate for those who rarely frequent to this mall. Look for the Celcom Blue Cube Center located outside the main entrance of below the Pyramid, 798 Shabu Shabu is just opposite the center across the road, adjacent to Xia Mian Guan (夏面舘).
At 798 Shabu Shabu, diners will be provided with personal-sized pots for their shabu-shabu experience, together with wide choices of buffet spread from vegetables, fish balls to thinly sliced meat. More hygenic, and more comfortable for those who do not like sharing cooking pot with others. The buffet is priced at RM29.80++ for lunch, and RM39.80++ for dinner.
Wondering why the restaurant is named Shabu 798, our question is answered flipping through the menu. The 7 in the restaurant namemeans 7 types of meat slices- Beef slices, chicken slices, dory fish slices, pork slices, lamb slices, abalone slices and venison slices. Meat slices are the main glory here, we don’t see any other seafood available, so dory fish is the closest we can get.
The 9 represents nine types of soup. The restaurant offers nine types of soup base, from mild to herbs, spicy, exotic flavours.Among the nine types, four types of main signature soups are available daily, which is:
Pork Bone Clear Soup (招牌豬骨清湯)
Tom Yum Soup (開胃酸辣湯)
Pepper Soup (迎春胡椒湯)
Herbal Soup (養生藥材湯).Another five types of soups are rotating daily, where:
Monday – Bak Kut Teh Soup (香醇肉骨茶湯)
Tuesday – Spicy Soup (激情麻辣燙)
Wednesday – Kimchi Soup (健康泡菜湯)
Thursday – Miso Soup (濃香味曾湯)
Friday – Winter Melon Soup Mystery (清涼冬瓜湯神祕感).
The last numeric number on their name-8 signifying 8 types of sauces, all fairly unique and pleasant in taste. Choose your choice of Spicy & Sour Sauce (巴厘島又辣又酸醬), Thai ‘2S’ Sauce (普吉式甜辣醬), Bean Curd Sauce (湘西腐濃乳香醬), Dark Soy Sauce (西馬太爺祖傳濃醬), Peanut Sesame Sauce (少林花生芝麻醬), Chilli Oil Sauce (峨嵋山辣油醬) to pair with your steamboat items.
In short, the name 798 means 7 types of meat slices, 9 types of soups and 8 types of special sauces. Enjoy them all together, chopstick and cook them Shabu Shabu style, and dip into the special sauce of your choice.
Among all, we love the Thai ‘2S’ Sauce the most, tangy and spicy concoction that liven up the taste of meat slices. By the end of your steamboat, grab some noodles and cook them in the soup which has already intensed with sweet essence and flavours of meat from early shabu-shabu.
For the price of RM29.80++ or RM39.80++, the buffet covers not only free flow of meat slices, vegetables, mushrooms, fish balls, noodles, eggs, bean curd, but also ice cream, dessert and sushi. Pretty worth the price. Do try them out when you are raving for steamboat after shopping in Sunway Pyramid.
