i don't know if anyone has posted about shabu-zen yet but i just wanted to say that i love this place!! i just recently came back to boston, from my hometown of bangkok, and i was craving shabu-shabu. to my delight, i found shabu-zen. their food is extremely fresh and tasty. if you like do-it-yourself-cooking then this is the place for you. considering that it's located in chinatown, i was surprised to find that it is nicely decorated and very clean. my dinner set cost around $16.00. if anyone has eaten here before, please tell me what you think.
