The Art of Boiling Your Own Dinner
Cleverly named for the boiling point of water, Mizu 212 serves a traditional Shabu-Shabu meal. Basically, they bring you raw meat (beef is the preferred meat, though I went with the pork this time around), raw vegetables, and other things that you can boil in water (udon noodles, shumai, etc.)
I loved the scene in "Lost in Translation" where Bill Murray says, "What kind of restaurant makes you cook your own food?" when he refers to the Shabu-Shabu restaurant from earlier in the day.
