Restaurant Please

This is it.  You should be able to figure out the type of restaurant with these two pics.  It's not a style of food I eat too often  -- at least not out...but it's worth trying every now and then.



This is it.  It's a shabu shabu restaurant.  Which in my mind is identical to hot pot, isn't it?  Put food in boiling broth.  There's a restaurant on the NE corner of Kennedy & Steeles, next to the Canada Trust Bank on the corner (not in Pacific Mall, but just west of the main mall.
I give this restaurant a 8/10.  Good food.  Not too expensive.  And a fun time.
$15.99 for all you can eat and all you can drink (soy bean, sour plum, pop -- all good).  Everything was fresh.  The meat wasn't frozen (unlike some other places), and the sauce was possibly the best part:  soy sauce, raw egg, satay, hot sauce, peanut, sesame, garlic and even thousand year old egg (this is a particularly tasty addition to the sauce).  All delicious.  It made the food taste really good if you get the sauce right.  Yum.
Also, really good are the dumplings/wonton.  Delicious!  The ones with shrimp were particularly good.  So while the food was simple, there were things you may not normally get (pig blood jello, lotus root).
Actually -- the best part was possibly that each person had an individual pot to cook in.  No need to share a main pot so low risk of cross-contamination.  Not sure if this is what makes it shabu shabu.  I say give it a shot.
