This is an offshoot of an earlier thread. I've been searching for a good fondue place. Anyway, the fondue options are limited, and someone recently suggested shabu shabu or Chinese hot pot. I've never experienced either, so it'd be an entirely new experience. So shabu shabu and/or Chinese hot pot is similar to fondue, with the dipping and cooking, right? Any recommendations of great first-timer restaurants on/near the Westside?
