An invitation to attend a press preview of the newest resto in town was too tempting to resist, so to mall
up the hill we went to experience an authentic Japanese Izakaya Hotpot meal. Nabe management hosted the media preview last week and experience what the newly opened resto had to offer with Haydee Kua their marketing department at the helm of operations.

Nabe mirrors the traditional Japanese hotpot meal with a flavorful broth paired with vegetables and choice meats, making the experience complete is the selection of side dishes U.S grade beef and pork with 16 soup bases to choose from! A Japanese izakaya is basically a stew and “Nabe” means “hot pot” is a classic winter food in Japan. It’s typically a stew where ingredients like meat, fish, and vegetables boiled
together, but there are many different versions of the delicacy.

Ideal for the Baguio chill, Nabe offers the perfect choice for as cozy meal with a quality meat selection and a curated array of side dishes. At the Nabe table, you will be treated to your private pot, electrically controlled heat and a delightful choice of meats, soup bases and add-on’s, the staff will assist first time hotpot eaters to how to navigate the menu.

Soup bases include, Soymilk sesame, Spicy soy milk, sukiyaki, curry, tan tan, spicy miso, shoyu, soy bean, Taiwan, hot and sour, spicy miso, Tonkotsu, konbu, spicy miso kimchi, basil cream and shoyu with ginger. Then comes the easy part, ordering your meats, as a carnivore, it will come as second nature to get everything the menu offers which include beef, pork, chicken and ground meats, coming in small boxes which will be served to you in small easy to consume quantities.

The side dishes also is a no brainer, you can order the entire selection of kimchi, tempura, various maki’s, chicken wings and menchi katsu [basically its ground pork or beef fried into a patty, making it a burger without the bun.
