Shabu Chien Yen is sort of like a Shabu (Japanese hot pot) carnival. Their selection of hot pot dishes is diverse and every corner of the place looks fancy--down to the smallest details. Weekday lunches here are NT$269; for weekends and dinners it's NT$299/person, all-you-can-eat. This palace-like hot pot restaurant also offers chocolate fondue with soft marshmallows, as well as all types of fried foods, made to order teppanyaki-style dishes, and sushi. --By Niang Chen, translated by Ann Lee
A. Their specially-selected hot pot ingredients include shrimp, clams, crab, and squid. Besides the twenty-something seafood selections, there are also assorted beef, lamb, pork, and poultry choices, as well as seasonal vegetables. These ingredients are all fresh and placed in a bright, clean bar, so guests can easily pick out what they want.
B. There are about ten different broths for the hot pot. The store manager, Mr. Lin, recommends their Cheese Hot Pot; this creamy pot goes best with seafood like squid and shrimp.
