There is a dish called Shabu Shabu that can be ordered vegetarian. A crock
of broth, which can be vegetable broth is put on a hot plate and kept hot.
A large bowl of different veggies, tofu and mushrooms...Oh some really
awesome Japanese mushrooms is given you and you take your chop sticks and
cook these veggies in the broth. A dip is given that is made of soy, a
Japanese citrus sauce, Daikon (Japanese radish) and onions and your palate
will party throughout your meal.
