"Nabe" refers to a large Japanese pot in which a selection of meats, fish, seafood and vegetables are cooked together in a seasoned broth to provide a wonderful communal meal. Often described as a winter specialty, a nabe hotpot stew can last for many hours as the heat beneath the pot is replenished and ingredients are added as desired.
One variation of Nabemono – Chankonabe – has become synonymous with Japan’s famous Sumo wrestlers, because the nutritional mix of ingredients boost the high protein levels the wrestlers need to gain the weight required to make them competitive.
Even today, Chankonabe remains a favourite among Sumo practitioners, from the lowly novice to the highest-ranked Yokozuna grand champion.
This winter, Up & Above Restaurant is offering a healthy version of Chankonabe.
Giving a real eneargy boost it comprises a selection of udon noodles, chicken, king crab, prawns, sea bass, mussels, clams and vegetables in a chicken and dashi broth. Wholesome and nourishing, it is the ideal winter meal to enjoy with family and friends.
The Chankonabe hotpot promotion is available daily from noon to 10pm, from January 1 to March 31, 2020.
Up & Above Restaurant is located on the 24th floor of The Okura Prestige Bangkok.
