  • Our children have never tried Shyabu-Shyabu, so we are going to bring them for their first experience.

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • Shyabu Shyabu is a unique Japanese cuisine that you have to experience to understand.

  • It's kind of like fondue, but with Japanese meats, veggies and sauces.

  • They get you seated and setup, and then it's up to you to decide how much you're going to eat.

  • Once your order, you need to watch for the serving robots that bring you your food.

  • It's going to come to us when the food is ready?

  • The robot brings it, it sounds like - for the dishes too...

  • Wow, that's a nice robot.

  • Thank you so much.

  • We can say clean up our room and he's going to clean it. That's right.

  • If you had a robot that cleaned up your room - oh man. That would be so nice.

  • So, we are going to do all you can eat

  • And so you can choose from a bunch of different types of beef or pork or,

  • The least variety you get the cheaper it is.

  • So we are going to go with kind of cheap because we have a lot of people to pay for.

  • This course has grass fed natural beef and pork.

  • And this one has beef and pork.

  • This one is only pork.

  • Yeah, so maybe like this beef? Ok? Ok!

  • That's about 7,000 yen. Let's do it!

  • After choosing what meats you want, you need to choose what flavor broths you will use to cook everything.

  • The choice is not that easy.

  • Oh, we select the 2 different kinds that we want.

  • The different kinds of broth to cook it in.

  • Oh, spicy red kimochi. Kimchi.

  • I don't think they would like it.

  • Sukiyaki? Yeah, I think so.

  • Sukiyaki. You want to change the other one?

  • It's what they offer for every one. I think just leave it.

  • Yeah, that looks good.

  • If you've figured that out, you're still not done.

  • You now decide if you will do the drink bar or not.

  • Ok.

  • Now I gotta select the meat. Ohhh, now select.

  • Now you're ready to order what meets you will begin with.

  • We're ordering a variety to try them all.

  • Ok now you can probably do pork belly. I'll bet that's good.

  • Ok, we're all ordered.

  • And we are going to go get our stuff over there. Should we go get our drinks? And there is also a salad bar guys.

  • And you have to put gloves on to get it. Ok, should we go?

  • How is it? Anna, getting her glove on for our buffet.

  • Yum. Look you can get your rice and you can get some curry. Oh boy Sarah. I want curry.

  • Oh, it's spicy.

  • Yeah so these are all the things you can put into our shyabu-shyabu to cook it.

  • Cool, huh?

  • Getting their drinks at the drink bar. There we go.

  • Upon returning to our seats, we had a very special visit.

  • Joshua flagged down the robot so he wouldn't run off with our meat.

  • Wow, this one is ours.

  • The blue light. All of those is ours.

  • How cool is that?

  • Press the blue button.

  • Joshua, stop.

  • Don't touch it.

  • Oh, this is so cool. Bye robot.

  • Here's our meat.

  • All the meat has come.

  • It comes in these trays here.

  • And then you put it in the oil.

  • The oil is going to cook it.

  • No clue if I'm doing this correctly.

  • It's ok, its going to be good anyway.

  • Oh boy.

  • You don't have to give it very long, and the veggies and meat simmer together into a delicious pot of food.

  • Oh yum, ok.

  • There's pork and beef ... Pork and beef, different sauces.

  • Different veggies in there. Does that look good Becca?

  • Becca's going to try her first bite.

  • Oh that's good!

  • Oh Joshua, look what Mommy got you.

  • Yum!

  • What do you think Anna?

  • You want one more? Not bad, huh?

  • Oh, she wants more though. Ok, that's not a bad sign.

  • After the kids were started on their food, it was time for Ruth and me to dig in too.

  • That's kind of a nice robot that gives you food, right?

  • Ohh, daddy's turn to try it.

  • Let's try it. Some pork belly and the veggies.

  • It's not that hot.

  • Yeah, it isn't.

  • Oh, it's good.

  • And then the beef

  • That's good too. Wow.

  • Through the smoke, having her curry rice.

  • We were down to our last trays of meat, so we ordered more and went back to the salad bar to get more veggies.

  • Through all the taste testing, we found our favorites.

  • So the normal broth, it kind of just tastes like it was boiled in water.

  • But the other sweet teriyaki is awesome. Isn't it? Do you like that too?

  • I think that's everyones favorite so far.

  • The robot just delivered the meat.

  • And then we have the meat and we have a whole new plate of veggies to put in.

  • And we have decided that the sweet teriyaki sauce is the best.

  • At least our favorite.

  • There it goes. Ok.

  • Oh, the veggies going in.

  • Shyabu Shyabu is named after the sound of the chopsticks make while stirring the hot pot,

  • but apparently it's also what happens inside the kids' stomachs as they eat.

  • I kind of need to go to the bathroom too...

  • In the middle of the meal and what needs to happen?

  • Bathroom. Bathroom.

  • So Becca, what did you say?

  • When we have a special time, where do you want to come? I want to come to Shyabu-shyabu.

  • Oh really, huh? That's how much you like it?

  • You too? Really? Sarah is the girl on the other side of all the smoke.

  • And mommy. We are smoke monsters.

  • No, not you.

  • Yeah, mommy has some smoke too, that's for sure.

  • I love this food.

  • Anna, you have good chopstick form.

  • Good chopstick form.

  • Ok, we're having shyabu-shyabu!

  • Yay!

  • How many plates of meat did we order?

  • We've ordered 14 so far. 14 so far?

  • Becca has had about 2 plates just herself?

  • Anna? Probably 4 plates?

  • Whoa Anna!

  • And Joshua is my curry rice man. How many bowls of curry rice did you have?

  • Two?

  • But the fun didn't end once we had our fill of Shyabu Shyabu

  • Ok, what are we waiting for Anna?

  • Cotton candy.

  • We have 29 seconds for it to warm up.

  • I shake this 2 times?

  • Can we get our own?

  • You put it in there?

  • You put it right in there.

  • Oh my goodness. It comes out so fast!

  • Go mommy go!

  • I don't know what I'm doing. But there is a lot of cotton candy on me.

  • Ok, that's for you.

  • It looks so good!

  • Ok, here we go Anna.

  • Again. Let's do it!

  • Have you ever made cotton candy? There sure seems to be an art to it!

  • What did you get Sarah? Cotton candy.

  • Cotton candy? Oh my goodness.

  • They had cotton candy over there.

  • I don't know where it comes from?

  • I think it comes from in the hole.

  • What hole? The bottom hole? Yeah, I think so.

  • Is this ok? That's tiny. Yeah.

  • We're done.

  • Anna's chowing away on some cotton candy also. How is it Anna?

  • Can you feel the sugar?

  • A lot of sugar.

  • Did you know that I remember the first time when we got cotton candy?

  • You remember the first time? Yeah.

  • Rebecca, what did you get? Shaved ice.

  • The kids took full advantage of the desert bar. There wasn't a single desert left behind.

  • And what did you guys get? Ice cream?

  • Look Daddy what happened to my ice cream.

  • Oh, you turned it into a shake.

  • This is what I do all the time with ice cream. Oh, is that what you like?

  • Yeah, that might be enough.

  • Hey, you too.

  • Gotta have my coffee.

  • For me, a bit of coffee with some soft cream is just right.

  • Momma found some waffles.

  • We were quite surprised at all the great things they offered at the buffet.

  • We came for the Shyabu Shyabu, but if you just came and got the food and drink bar, you would eat quite well.

  • Oh Sarah, does that look so good?

  • You got a lot of shaved ice. Yeah! Sure did.

  • Oh, here comes some melon shaved ice.

  • What a big helper.

  • Thank you Becca.

  • This is the post all you can eat blues.

  • Everybody needs a nap afterwards, huh? And you're still eating!

  • Oh my goodness.

  • Do you like our videos? Then show your support by subscribing!

  • We appreciate each and everyone one of you!

  • And that was our shyabu-shyabu trip. How was it guys? How did you like it?

  • 100%. 10 out of 10!

  • 10 out of 10!?!

  • Anna? 10/10!

  • 10/10!

  • (Not sure what he said...???)

  • To infinity? Wow.

  • 10/10. 10/10? Momma-chan?

  • I think it is mostly because they liked the desserts.

  • It was so good! But I have been here a couple of times.

  • So, is that a 10/10?

  • Ok, sit down and buckle in please.

Our children have never tried Shyabu-Shyabu, so we are going to bring them for their first experience.
