What is Shabu-Shabu?

As a lighter alternative to traditional Chinese hot pot, shabu-shabu is a Japanese take on this same dish, using a nabemono hotpot filled with delicious broths ideal for cooking any kind of added ingredient. Derived from the ‘swish-swish’ sound emitted from the pot as the ingredients are stirred, shabu-shabu is the savory version of sweeter sukiyaki.

How It Works 

Diners can select two soup bases from the seven total choices (shabu-shabu, sukiyaki, beef bone, tom yum goong, pork stomach & chicken, kimchi or tomato), and the price per person is determined by the meat set selected.
