Healthy buffet? YES!
The key to someone’s heart is, undoubtedly, food. But going more into that, it needs to be a balance of something tasty, something heartfelt, and something a little healthy (for long life). Hot pot or shabu-shabu gives you all of that, boiling in a bowl full of vegetables, noodles, fish cakes, and more.
Need proof? If you’ve ever seen Terrace House: Opening New Doors then you know just how big a deal shabu-shabu can be. Without giving too much away, the wrong kind of hot pot can ruin any chances with a girl you like.
