Friday is the best day of the week; can we all agree on that? My friend and I decided to celebrate the end of the week with the usual get-together. We stumbled upon MABU Generation and noticed that there were a lot of people inside waiting for a seat, so we looked at each other and said why not. The wait was around one hour and it was a spur of the moment thing, so we both decided to wait in line.
It gave us more time to look at the menu and catch up. Since it was extra chilly that day, we both decided to order the house special hot pot with everything included. After the long wait, we finally made it inside and were totally excited about the personal hot pot meal (tip: book a reservation beforehand).
Hot pot is the perfect meal on a chilly day. The selected items of your choice boils in a soup base, all you have to do is take it out – dip it into the desired sauce and eat it! The ones we had included a little bit of everything. There was a lot of seating within the restaurant, with a bar in the back. The décor gave an overall hipster vibe to the place.
The personal hot pot was around $16 dollars. If you are not a big fan of spice, just let them know to lower the spice level. The broth base is quite spicy if you are not a regular spicy food eater. For dessert, my friend decided to order grilled Japanese rice cakes. That was pretty delicious as well since we rarely see a restaurant having this served as a dish.
If you are still hungry and yearning for dessert that isn’t as pricey, head out to the place right beside it called sugar marmalade. They only take cash but it is a great place to chill with your friends.
