Who does fancy hot shabu-shabu? I recently visited Dolar Shop in Gajah Mada a shabu-shabu house which is originated from Macao. Dolar Shop is actually a franchise and the Dolar Shop here is the first outlet outside the land of China.In Dolar Shop, there are plenty of food to be chosen and most are home-made. You can find hand-made beef meatballs, fish meatballs, squid meatballs, prawn meatballs and even hand-made noodles. There are also good quality Australian beef, lamb, seafood, oyster mushroo
Serving so many choices of food with price ranging from IDR 24k - IDR 100k, they have some set menu with price ranging from IDR 135k - IDR 175k to choose from.
We got to enjoy Set Lunch C and it was a good value for money set!

Our hot pot experience was pretty satisfying. Given a chance to try the original soup, we think it's the best kind of soup to accomodate as a lighter neutral base in order to bring out more rich flavours from the other ingredients that we put inside the pot. I like the overall elements but let me point out two notable ingredients that brings out the best of this experience, which were the Australian beef and homemade noodle!
The handmade noodle was my perfect kind of noodle. It had that good lamian quality and the texture was sorta bouncy, which I loved!
Other than that, everything else was pretty okay and the experience dining here was positive.
To sum up, Dolar Shop is good place to enjoy shabu-shabu with your family and friends. The place itself does resemble more of a family place. I think it would be quite nice to have a family gathering or celebration in Dolar Shop. After all, shabu-shabu is always fun when enjoyed with your dearest ones. ;)
