Nisol Day Series - Shabu Shabu

I've mentioned in a previous post that my husband is a writer and he is in the process of writing a YA sci/fi fantasy novel that is set in a dystopian world called "Nisol."  Nisol is different world, yet eerily familiar.  There are some Japanese elements to the story - one being the food.  My husband is so good at writing food scenes.  There is no way you will read the book and not get hungry/crave the food in the book.  So, since a lot of things remind me of his novel, I decided to create a "Nisol" series.  I posted the first one a while ago here.

Today in the Nisol series, I will post about shabu shabu.  There is one scene in the book where they eat it, and I craved it so bad, so we went to go have it.


My husband writer.  This setting reminds me of Nisol.


Shabu Shabu - Kobe beef & Sashimi. mmmm. 


These rolls were delicious

This restaurant was called Shabu Sushi, and I enjoyed it very much.  Other yelp reviewers don't seem to like it, but I thought it was great!  I don't have very discriminating tastes though and most things make me happy, food-wise.  

Yummy Yummy! Can't wait to eat here again!

  4. Oh I'm so curious now to read his things, maybe he could keep a blog too and share such things as I follow some blogs where the owners of it write poems.

    I've never tried oriental food, I'd love to but I can only eat halal meat so its quite limited. Thanks for sharing though.

    1. I know, I will encourage him to start a blog.

      And, if you're interested -- there are plenty of non-meat options for Asian foods -- some shabu shabu places have tofu options! Definitely try if you can find one :D
