Eatigo 1K Food Challenge- Eat All You Can Hotpot at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban Banawe

Last week, we took the Eatigo 1K Food Challenge and dined in one of their partner restaurants. The goal was to book a table via Eatigo app and enjoy a meal with only Php1000 budget to spend. It will be easy to do when you are going for a light snack at a nearby cafe or fast food. But when you plan to have lunch or dinner at casual dining restaurant, an eat-all-you-can restaurant even, now that is a challenge.


And when a food challenge gets thrown at us, we foodies never back down. Would you believe that a Php1,000 budget can get two diners a filling meal with drinks and even dessert?

Yes, and we did! With the right app, at the right place at the right time, we enjoyed a sumptuous lunch, an eat all you can meal for that matter, at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban in Banawe.


Booking via Eatigo was easy. I just looked for a restaurant nearby, and chose a time slot with its corresponding discount. Now, we just have to show up at the restaurant on the specified time, and enjoy the discount on our total food bill.


I made a reservation at Shabu-Shabu Ichiban in Banawe for our office lunch out last Friday. It was a bed weather day and so we opted for something to warm our bellies.


I booked the 11:00am timeslot with 30% discount for their Eat & Drink All You Can menu.


They have 3 sets to choose from, but unfortunately only Set A was available that time. 

Regular Price for Set A is P488/head. Our total bill would have been Php976 for 2 persons, but since we booked via Eatigo with 30% discount, our total bill went down to Php683.20 (P300 savings).


Step One: Choose Your Drink
Enjoy unlimited refills of iced tea, lemonade, pineapple, soda and hot tea while enjoying your shabu-shabu.
Step Two: Choose Your Soup
Shabu-shabu Ichiban has a wide selections of soup to choose from. You can order 2 kinds of broth, but the succeeding refills will just be their regular plain soup. 
Step Three: Choose Your Set 
There are 3 sets availabl which can get you unlimited refills of premium meat, mixed balls, tempura, king crab and more, depending on the set you will choose.

Our chosen Set A included unlimited servings of vegetables, beef and pork slices, dumplings and assorted balls, noodles, rice, egg and drinks.


We also got one serving of Kushikatsu and Japanese-style Fried Chicken Wing.



Shabu-Shabu Ichiban is a self-service restaurant where diners can get the ingredients they want from the chiller. This is to prevent leftovers and for diners to have control over the servings they can only consume.



We got the Curry and Ginger for our soup base, and basically tried everything on the chiller.


Our favorites were the beef slices, mozzarella balls, and stuffed buns. The dumplings were also interesting served without the wrapper, but in paste form.



Overall, Shabu-Shabu Ichiban has the essential ingredients for a hotpot meal. What makes it unique is its wide selection of soup base and the options to have unlimited king crab legs, tempura, chicken wings, etc.



Shabu-Shabu Ichiban Menu:

For me, what made our experience really worth it was the discount we got from Eatigo. I couldn't believe that our eat all you can lunch costs only Php340 per person. A bottomless drink alone would already cost P120 in other restaurants, and two scoops of ice cream would cost around P100.


Eatigo is definitely the perfect app for foodies who loves to score amazing deals and discounts when dining out. Plus, did I mention that the app is free for all Android and iOS users.
