The Osaka single serving style Shabu Shabu hot pot began 42 years ago in Senri –chuo, Toyonaka.
That was first "Senri Shabu Chin". Traditionally, shabu-shabu is a hot pot cuisine in which everyone surrounds one pot and share. But this single serving hot pot quickly has become very popular because you are the only person who uses chopsticks in the hot pot. It is relatively inexpensive.
This style has had a favorable reception. It has become a way of eating without discomfort for people who prefer not to eat together with other people poking around the same hot pot. Particularly tourists from abroad.
The manager was qualified as a sommelier in 2012.He was influenced by his brother, who became sommelier two years before.
He's still inexperienced as a sommelier, but he is making many efforts to make sure customers to enjoy affordable and delicious wine.
His family is looking forward to offering you several kinds of red and white wines.
Customers abroad are always welcome.
