Menu says the shabu shabu feeds two, but four can easily share and be satisfied. These slices of black piglet are wondrously soft and chewy, and are more efficiently absorbent than Pampers diapers in soaking up the paired sauces. Whilst the chilli sauce was chicken rice-esque and the goma sauce was nicely peanuty, my favourite was indisputably the yuzu sauce, all light and playfully tangy. 4.1/5
