Have you ever heard of Shabu-Shabu? It’s one of most significant Japanese dishes, getting really popular among foreign tourists nowadays. The literal meaning of the word, “shabu-shabu” is the movement when you put and wave/shake the ingredients inside the cooking pot. After you do “the waving”, dip your ingredients into your choice of sauce.
