A bit expensive, but if you could afford some crabs, better to add some. Not only the crab itself is delicious but it also has great dashi.

When finishing your nabe dish, adding some rice will be the most common choice. Add some rice and make the nabe boil once. After then, pour in melting eggs.

Adding cheese instead of melting eggs will change them into a Korean kimchi risotto.

Instant noodles
