Please...REAL Shabu Shabu

shabulover | Jan 31, 2008 05:52 AM

Is there anywhere around here where I can get traditional japanese shabu shabu (in other words...not Bob's)?

There was a place in Fairfax (Arigato) but they've since changed names (and possibly ownership) and our last shabu shabu experience there wasn't very good (the meat was sliced very thick, and was extremely fatty and just thrown on the plate...the hostess later asked if we didn't like the way she sliced it!!!!).

Anyway, with the amount of places in Boston, San Francisco, New York and even Phoenix I can't figure out why I can't find Shabu Shabu anywhere around here.

Help please!!!...I don't want to have to drive to NY to satisfy this craving :o).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
