Cafe Asia is a restaurant with shabu shabu at the core of its menu, surrounded by a supporting cast of pupu and side dishes for those days when the cook-it-yourself option seems too fussy.

Cafe Asia seems like a fusion of Japanese shabu shabu and Chinese hot pot. They also have a great assortment of pupus. This is their shabu shabu with coconut curry and a butter miso broth. The meat is an Australian Lamb Leg, left, and beef short ribs.
