Best known for their viral Barbie dolls draped in slices of Wagyu beef ($38.90), this Melbourne venue is one of more than 500 stores internationally. As an added bonus, the menu allows guests to choose their own mini, individual pots instead of the usual shared soup in the centre of the table.

Personalised service is at the forefront of their business model – you can expect Spice World bibs and complimentary hair ties to be offered, as well as the perfect dipping sauce concoction made from their homemade soy sauce.

Dip pieces of Kagoshima A5 Wagyu striploin ($98.90) or gold-dusted M9 short rib ($88.90) into your soup, sit back and let it melt in your mouth. Finish off the meal with the most intricately made purple sweet potato puffs shaped into black swans ($16.90) -  even the 'neck' and 'beak' of the potato-crafted swan are entirely edible.
