Japanese Treehouse Treats

Okinawa, Japan

Okinawa, Japan

What’s better than a treehouse in Japan?  A restaurant in a treehouse in Japan.  Why didn’t I think of that?  Gajumaru is the place, shabu-shabu is the specialty.  The dish’s name, しゃぶしゃぶ in Japanese, is an onomonopia of the sound it makes during preparation.  (A little imagery, I just said shabu-shabu three times in a row while doing a stirring motion to get an idea of the audio.)  In short, it is a meal of thinly sliced meat, veggies and tofu to be dipped in broth.  The eating process is similar to chips and dip.  We’re all alike after all 🙂  Consider Gajumara the newest member of my Globe Trot List.  Sayonara!
