Default Special Japanese Meal

I wonder if there is anyone out there who will know the answer to this one. When in Tokyo I was taken to a lunchtime meal where the whole meal was cooked in boiling water in front of you, one pot each and a type of fondue really. Some very thinly sliced meat (pork maybe?) was dipped in the water and cooked in seconds, with each slice cooked the water turned more into stock. Then various vegetables were cooked in the stock and finally noodles were cooked to make a back to front meal, starting with the meat and finishing with the noodle soup. It was delicious and seemed to be called "slish slosh" or something like that. Does anybody recognise this and can tell me what all the ingredients were ?

In some countries it's called a Steam Boat.

I can't think of anything that sounds like "slish slosh" - how about shabu-shabu?

I love the food (particularly Korean version) but hate the way I smell when I come out of the restaurant.

Shabu-shabu, definitely. Google for it.

yes it's shabu shabu

Shabu-shabu or something similar soup base Japanese or Korean meals are disagreeable to me.

8 years ago, I had Shabu Shabu in Brisbane at somebody's house (Korean) and that I found it's too yuck - the smell/the meat/the stock and everything! I just don't understand why people think it's very tasty? oMG.

It's with sliced beef (or lamb? sometimes), vegies, Tofu, and noodle (?) the soup base - sometimes chicken stock or Katsuo/Dashi

I am surprising you love that stuff. Most Brits dislike (Shabu Shabu or kind of thing with soup ) so does my boy friend. and me.

enjoy Shaby shabu - good luck

Thanks guys, on one link for shabu shabu I found "The familiar swishing sound is where the dish gets its name. Shabu-shabu roughly translates to "swish-swish". " Looks like there are a few variations and as I love Japanese and Thai food, it might be something to try at home one day.
