    Shabu shabu for dinner (pork)

    Had dinner pretty late and restaurant about to close so got to hurry a little. Have to say enjoyed the dinner as the quality fo the meat and vegetables are very good and fresh.

    Most of Japan is very hot NW that it's summer. Summer time is time for cold ramen

    Got a couple of ice cube in it too
