  • - You cook everything in here.

  • It's a large piece of meat, guys.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Welcome back to our channel, cheapos.

  • It's finally autumn here in Tokyo,

  • and what better way to start off the season

  • than by filling you in on some warm,

  • good for the soul foods and treats

  • you can eat during the cooling weather

  • and changing colors of the leaves?

  • Nabe, or hot pot, is one of the most popular

  • cold weather dishes in Japan.

  • Nabe literally means pot.

  • But it's used as a generic term for soups

  • or light stews cooked in an iron or clay pot.

  • Made with dashi, or soup stock, vegetables and meat,

  • nabe has many varieties with some notable examples.

  • Here are three popular types of nabe.

  • Sukiyaki, the food is already cooked in a sweet and salty

  • soy sauce based broth with strong flavors.

  • Yosenabe, the most basic type of nabe

  • which entails putting all ingredients in a pot.

  • Shabu shabu, which is made by immersing

  • the ingredients in boiling water

  • and swishing them back and forth until cooked.

  • The term refers to the swishing sound

  • of ingredients being cooked.

  • There are plenty of places to experience affordable,

  • all-you-can-eat nabe.

  • And one of them is Momo Paradise

  • in the heart of Shinjuku Kabukichou.

  • This place may look upscale,

  • but the prices are a steal and great for dates,

  • social gatherings or family dinners.

  • This place offers an all-you-can-drink menu

  • for both soft drinks or alcohol.

  • All-you-can-drink soft drinks are 400 yen.

  • And all-you-can-drink alcohol is 1500.

  • Momo Paradise has a wide selection of meat,

  • vegetables and other ingredients you can refill at any time.

  • Different types of meat such as beef, pork,

  • and chicken from Australia, America,

  • and Japan are all available.

  • Okay, so we're at a shabu shabu restaurant.

  • It's called Momo Paradise.

  • And we're about to order a shabu shabu course.

  • And the course is about 2800 yen.

  • It's pretty cheap for all you can eat,

  • so really excited about that.

  • It's a really nice place.

  • We're gonna get our meal,

  • and we'll start getting out stuff.

  • So let's do it.

  • Mom Paradise specializes in both sukiyaki and shabu shabu.

  • One of the best things about this place

  • is the fact that this restaurant is English friendly.

  • So if you're nervous about your Japanese,

  • the staff can definitely speak English.

  • - [Server] You can put in the sauce.

  • Two choice of flavors. - Okay, okay.

  • Thank you.

  • - Thank you.

  • We chose a standard shabu shabu menu

  • as it was the most appealing to us price-wise.

  • Okay, so basically they cook the food for you first,

  • and then you can cook the rest by yourself.

  • So they served me this meat,

  • and you can add more and the vegetables and everything else.

  • And what I think is actually really cool about this place,

  • they give you this little coin.

  • And so if you want more vegetables, you can turn it over.

  • It's in English here.

  • It says, need vegetables.

  • You see, like this.

  • And then if you have enough vegetables,

  • then you flip it over and it's like,

  • it just says enough vegetables.

  • So if you don't need vegetables, you flip it on this side.

  • If you need vegetables, you flip it on this side.

  • As you enjoy your meal,

  • waiters and trolleys come along to every table

  • and will serve ingredients to your needs.

  • On your table, you're provided with dipping sauces

  • as well as chili sauce, garlic and lemon juice to add to it.

  • This is vinegar.

  • This is spicy sauce.

  • This is garlic.

  • And this is the garlic chips.

  • So you can put this in your sauce.

  • This is ponzu.

  • It's kind of like a citrusy sauce.

  • So you can put a little bit of that in there.

  • A little bit of garlic.

  • I don't know, maybe that was a lot.

  • To eat shabu shabu, it's quite simple.

  • Just pick up whatever vegetables and meat you would like.

  • Toss it in the pot.

  • Then swish it around until it's cooked.

  • You cook everything in here.

  • It's a large piece of meat, guys.

  • And then you dip it in the sauce.

  • And you eat it.

  • Wow, it's really good.

  • Keep in mind this is all you can eat, so come hungry.

  • So I got my detox tea.

  • All you can drink is 400 yen.

  • Super cheap.

  • So if you're not an alcohol drinker,

  • I suggest the soft drink menu.

  • Healthy and affordable.

  • While you're enjoying your meal,

  • don't forget to skim off any excess fat.

  • With all the extra meat and veggies piling up for two hours,

  • I think we had reached our limit.

  • Oh, and don't forget to have a dance party

  • to make your shabu shabu experience even better.

  • I still need to eat all this, guys.

  • So we just finished our meal,

  • and it was really, really good.

  • Highly recommend it.

  • I'm so full.

  • It's very affordable.

  • And the atmosphere is very high end,

  • so I was pretty shocked when I walked in.

  • I thought it was gonna be way more expensive

  • than I had anticipated.

  • All you can eat stuff.

  • So I feel like, for the price,

  • this is a good deal.

  • Even for drinks.

  • Like, all you can drink 1500 yen.

  • That's a good deal.

  • We will link everything down below in the description

  • if you wanna know more about this.

  • And yeah, we'll see you guys in the next video.
