Has anyone else tried this place out? I am very unfamiliar with this style of cooking and would like some tips on what to order next time.

My wife and I went this past Saturday and had a wonderful tofu dish - house tofu. The dish came with Chinese black and enoki mushrooms, lightly fried tofu (sauteed?), ginger, garlic, snow peas, and carrot. We also had a pre-made bowl of beef shabu shabu with noodles. The shabu shabu was rather bland and only after we ordered did our waitress tell us that most people order the spicy. The place was very very clean, the service was fast and attentive, and from the looks of it the fried tofu was a popular item on Saturday (similar to the version at First Chinese BBQ). The shabu shabu to me looks like you build your own soup: start with your meat of choice seafood or beef, get a try of veggies (corn, napa cabbage, noodles, etc) and cook it as logn as you would like in a supplied broth. I could be wrong that is what this post is all about!

If anyone else has some input about their dining experience and what to order i would love to hear about it.
