I am looking for good shabu shabu in Richmond. I've had shabu shabu at two places in the area. One was Shabusen, the chain, with one near Robson and the other on Granville near 12th...The other place I tried was in Richmond, called Happy Shabu shabu. Both places were alright. Actually, Happy was way better, and in fact would end my search, if the sauces were better. They serve one sauce, and I'm not sure what it is, but doesn't add much to the flavors.
I'm used to shabu shabu in LA, where it's more prevalent. There, you always get two sauces, one a ponzu sauce, the other a sesame sauce. They MAKE the meal. Does anyone know of a place that serves shabu shabu with those sauces? Richmond would be my first choice for location, and probably my best bet, but I'm open to anything.
