Hong Kong: Gyu Jin 牛陣 Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki

For the number of times the family has visited Hong Kong, it was the first time for us to try Gyu Jin. We arrived a few minutes before noon, and the line wasn't as long as we anticipated.

Tacky posters decorate the outside of the shop.

Yes, unlimited Haagan Dazs is part of the buffet!

The lunch menu is open from 12nn - 5pm. There's an option for a Shabu Shabu course, Sukiyaki course, and Soy Milk Shabu Shabu course. We went for Shabu Shabu, selecting Supreme Beef out of three beef type options: Regular, Supreme and Wagyu. And since we felt that the 60 minutes won't be sufficient to enjoy lunch, we added 30 minutes more. 

Gyu Jin Supreme Shabu Shabu [HKD 108, Php 570] for 60 minutes 
Gyu Jin Supreme Shabu Shabu [HKD 138, Php 730] for 90 minutes 

Another version is to have a limited serving of beef, and unlimited serving of vegetables per person. Pricing is as follows:

The Japanese style interior is warm and cozy.

Everything but the beef can be picked up from the buffet. That's a lot of vegetable variety!

Some of the cuttlefish balls, squid rolls, chicken balls, fish nuggets etc. are available at this section.

Especially that there's a time limit for lunch, it seemed like forever to have the pot start boiling.

The beef was served quickly each time it was requested. We had about five plates of this. Pork belly was skipped altogether to accommodate all the beef.

Fresh vegetables, mushrooms and tofu were abundant.

The rules that apply in dining here are as follows:
1. Dishes in the menu will be served buffet style
2. Only the same set menu can be selected for all customers on each table
3. First order is beef. Additional orders need to be placed.
4. The time starts once you are seated. Last order will be 15 minutes before the meal time ends.
5. Food served is for dine-in only. No take-away allowed.

For Php 730, we found that the quality of the food was good for the money. The Haagen Dazs ice cream four-flavour buffet was a great bonus. We'll definitely add this to our Hong Kong restaurant options for our next visits.
