    ... babies. However, the highlight of the meal was shabu-shabu, a style of self cooking thinly sliced beef very briefly in a hot broth. Strangely, this meal was not served with rice, but after all of the main courses were finished, then a bowl of rice cooked in a broth with added vegetables (ie different than usual) was served with a bowl of miso soup.
