The beef tongue here is sliced incredibly thick, at least 20mm thick for each piece! Not only the beef tongue was tender and juicy, the flavours were rich and savoury, with a hint of smokiness from the grill. The portion is a bit small given its high price point, but definitely worth to try!

The shabu-shabu set I ordered was incredibly generous in portion! In addition to the hotpot and beef tongue slices, the set also included a few additional pieces of beef tongue and rice. While the quality of the beef slices wasn’t the best, the generous portion made up for it. The vegetables and noodles served with the meal were of good quality. Compared to the other plate of beef tongue we ordered, the beef tongue in this set was a more affordable option, resulting in a more “ordinary” taste.
