We visited Dashi Master Marusaya just before the circuit breaker period to try out its Dashi Shabu and signature ceations. At Dashi Master Marusaya, diners will get to enjoy Marusaya’s signature Dashi that has been carefully prepared with its iconic Dashi Shabu broth using Katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes) that took 2 years to process with Rishiri kelp and Satsuma 2-year-old hongare-honbushi. Its dashi is all-natural, nutritious, healthy and full of umami flavours!

This is a popular Japanese-style hot pot where you can put the meat, assorted vegetables and cooked in a flavorful broth.
After we have finished the delicious shabu shabu, the handmade silky Udon and comforting porridge are cooked in the yummy stock and served at the end of it. We enjoyed this delicious Dashi Shabu immensely!
