At first when I heard the name “Shin-Sen-Gumi”, I thought of the ramen restaurant. Later I found out there are many “Shin-Sen-Gumi” restaurants, and they vary from izakaya, sushi, shabu shabu, and the famous one, ramen. The restaurant was a mix of izakaya and shabu shabu. Atmosphere is pretty loud and it’s bright, that’s perfect if you take you take photos of everything you eat, like me ><; I don't know what it is about the Japanese restaurants I've been going to lately, but they have slow service.
I ordered suyika with a buddy of mine and the meat didn’t come out until the pot was almost dry. Besides the slow service, food was excellent. We ordered appetizers, sukiyaki, shabu shabu, and the Japanese style grill. There was so much food, I couldn’t take much photos because the portions here are very generous. The table was overflowing with food. Not only that… I was soooooo hungry!
