shabu-zen... chemical taste?

tulseluper | Feb 29, 2008 08:12 AM

This might be a weird question... both times that I ate at Shabu-zen in Chinatown, my soup had a distinct chemical taste to it. Not in every spoonful, but in most, an astringent aftertaste. I wonder, could it be from a spice that I'm not used to? Does anyone know what I mean?
