After taking photos we went out for some shabu-shabu, but it was actually dim sum shabu-shabu so it was even better. It was a really good shabu-shabu place near Bexco called 샤브향. I definitely recommend it if you’re in the area. We got a private room, so I was glad for that because we were carrying all of our bags and weapons. Plus it can get wicked awkward carrying around cosplay stuff, but I usually don’t mind. Actually when we were heading to Centum City for the photo shoot, five or six teenage girls saw me carrying Vanille’s weapon and yelled, “COSTUME PLAY?” I nodded and they all shouted, “GOOD!!” Then we saw them on the train and they apparently recognized us and said, “Super Mario?” I confirmed this and they seemed happy to know who we were.
Anyway, back to the shabu-shabu. First, we cooked the meat and vegetables in the broth. We dipped the rice paper wrappers into a bowl of warm water, so they would become soft and easy to wrap. At first the wrappers look like sheets of plastic, but after you dip them in water they start looking more like edible food thankfully, haha. Then we added meat, vegetables and sauce and wrapped them up in the rice paper. It came with three kinds of sauces, all of which were pretty good. After everyone finished their dim sum, we added a bowl of noodles and the rest of the vegetables to the broth. When we were finished with that, the broth was starting to reduce, so we added a big bowl of rice and some slices of sweet pumpkin. We mashed it all together and it made a delicious kind of friend rice or bokumbop 볶음밥. I could barely eat any of the rice because I was so full. We’ll definitely have to go back sometime soon.
