Nabezo is one of the best AYCE shabu-shabu restaurants in Japan. They have multiple locations throughout Tokyo, with restaurants in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, etc. All of them are the same concept and the same quality, so I would just recommend going to whichever one is most convenient for you.
I believe all of the Nabezo’s have a 90 minute time limit, and you can eat unlimited meat, vegetables, rice, ice cream, etc. The price depends on which course you order (some have higher quality meats available), but on average the price will probably be between $25 and $50.
The quality of the meats is not as good as a restaurant like Seryna, but considering that it is AYCE, I think it is still extremely high quality. They have both pork and beef available, so it just depends on which meat you prefer. Also, Nabezo has a great selection of vegetables and noodles at the self-service bar, which is really good if you are trying to be a bit healthier.
Since it is still relatively hot right now in Japan, it is probably not the best time to be eating shabu-shabu. However, in a couple of months when the weather starts to cool down, shabu-shabu is going to be a great food option. If you are looking for an AYCE shabu shabu, or just somewhere reasonably priced, Nabezo is a great option!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
