Good value for your money: the vegetables are fresh, and the meat
One of my favourite hot pot chains! It is foreigner friendly with English menus. It is an all you can eat and prices depend on what kind of meats you want.
I love Japanese hot pot, and my favorite place to go is Nabe-zo. While it may seem a little boring to nabe (hot pot) enthusiasts as it’s a large chain, it’s my place of choice as it can be found in most station areas and you can stuff your face with as much pork, beef, vegetables, and other yummy food like noodles, all at a low price. The “all you can eat” concept isn’t as popular in Japan as it is in places like the US, so I always hit up Nabe-zo when I need some hearty goodness. The staff will ask you for your choice of either shabu-shabu, sukiyaki (sweet soy sauce), shio-tonkotsu (salt pork broth), spicy kimchi, or soy milk with collagen (yes, collagen). You order beef or pork directly from the staff, and get whatever else you want from the 20+ choice veggie bar. Base price for dinner without drinks is around 2,000Y; Nabe-zo is also open for lunch at a much cheaper rate. A 10% coupon can be found on GourmetNavi, but you need to know how to read Japanese to get it.
Branches can be found in several areas of Tokyo; my favorite is the Nabe-zo in Shibuya on Koen-Dori in the Humax Pavillion next to the Disney Store. Remember that Nabe isn’t just about the food; it’s about the experience, so the more people, the merrier. Reservations are highly recommended during winter months or cold nights as nabe is a popular food to be eaten when the weather is cold.
