Shabu Ya, Hacienda Heights

Just had dinner at Shabu Ya in Hacienda Heights (in the strip mall plaza located at Fullerton and Colima). Apparently, they just opened last week.

Decor is very cute and clean. A good dinner crowd last night - a good amount of people but it didn't feel crowded or chaotic. The servers are very attentive and on the top of their game.

Menu is your standard shabu shabu fare. There's a meat slicer right in front of the shabu counter and I love that they slice the meat to order. We had the main house beef, which was absolutely yummy. Kobe beef is offered as well. The vegetables served were very clean and fresh with very generous portions. I love their sesame sauce - it's not too sweet or overpowering. Ponzu sauce was great as well, served with generous heapings of green onion, minced garlic and grated daikon.

They offer appetizers - grilled japanese sausage, sea bass (I forget how it was prepared), to name a few.

Definitely looking forward to going back.
