    I feel this video it is rather like a vlog and does not really explain the difference very well, so for anyone wondering I have detailed it below.
    - Uses thinner slices of meat and vegetables
    - The ingredients are usually cooked one piece at a time by dipping briefly in pot of water
    - The ingredients are then dipped in various sauces (such as sesame seed sauce seen in this video)
    - It is usually eaten with rice
    - It is eaten all year round

    - Thicker slices of meat and vegetables
    - The ingredients are cooked together in a pot of soy sauce, mirin and sugar
    - The ingredients are usually dipped in a bowl of raw beaten eggs before eating.
    - It is eaten during winter.
    Most places typically serve both as 'all you can eat and drink'. Prices range from 15 USD to 40 USD per person for 90 minutes of dining in major cities. Anything below this and the quality may be questionable, anything above this and you are paying for the brand recognition, service or are just being scammed.

    Cool video Mike. I think you should go to a sukiyaki only spot. I'm more of a sukiyaki fan. They have that sweet soy sauce kind of sauce with the beef and medley of veggie with tofu. Oh well. Shabu shabu!!! 😆😁🙂🤘👊

    I have been to the same restaurant brand, though it was the one in Asakusa. I spent about 200 dollars there, and they walked me all the way to the outside and gave me lots of souvenirs when I left!

      Places in Hong Kong will do this for 40 USD, plus it is usually all you can eat and drink.
      You can even get it for 20 USD, but the quality is usually a little lower.

    The raw eggs remind me of this.
    from google:
    However, deficiencies can be caused by consuming raw egg whites over a period of months to years. Egg whites contain high levels of avidin, a protein that binds biotin strongly. When cooked, avidin is partially denatured and binding to biotin is reduced.
    I like raw eggs sometimes though.
    Maybe some Japanese people need some Biotin supplement? Just a thought.

      Billy Buttlord Are you referring to the Shabu-shabu? The ingredients including the meat are really simmered in broth, not deep fried. Sukiyaki is cooked similarly except the cooking liquid is flavored with soy sauce and mirin.

    If you are still in Japan - you should do Kansai (Osaka region) vs Kantou (Tokyo region) sukiyaki battle! It's prepared totally differently. Plus the flavor profile is much different (more soy base or more fish base!)

    Mikey i think i would fit in quite well in Japan when it comes to the eggs. If i have fried eggs, they are LITERALLY pretty much raw and i mean the white of the egg isnt completely cooked. Im the kid of person who could drink raw eggs and not be fazed by it at all.
