I'm trying to book a birthday party for someone who loves Shabu Shabu. He really enjoyed "making" his own soup by adding the ingredients to the hotpot on the table, but ever since Tokyo Palace closed down years ago, I haven't found a place that does it in Edmonton.
I've heard that Zen does Shabu Shabu on a seasonal basis but the one time I tried to go there they weren't preparing it. A review of a restaurant called "Sabu" over on 82nd ave and 74th street says they do shabu shabu but it doesn't show up on their menu posted online.
Anyone been to Sabu, or better yet, had the shabu shabu there? (Or anywhere else in Edmonton - I'd welcome recommendations) I want to double-check that any place I go to actually does the whole spread and lets you cook the ingredients on a soup pot at the table. The person I'm having the party for doesn't really care about Japanese food otherwise, so if I showed up and they didn't have the soup, it'd be a wash.
Thanks in advance for any help!
