LOS ANGELES: Shabu Shabu House

Posted in food, los angeles, restaurants by sue on November 19, 2010

I’ve been going to this restaurant since high school (that’s at least ten years!) and it has never once disappointed me. The wait is long yes, but that’s just a testament to how great this place is, especially considering there are two other shabu shabu places nearby that are consistently empty. I’m not sure why this place is so good– is it the meat? the ponzu sauce? or both? Who knows, I just know it’s hands down the best shabu shabu place I’ve been to, throughout California, New York, Japan, and Taiwan. This restaurant is a simple concept with such a simple menu. They only serve beef, a veggie plate, and drinks. The only choices you have are whether you want a medium or large plate of meat and if you want the meat leaner or fattier. The service isn’t the best, but you hardly have to deal with them. (The waiters have been the same for the past ten or so years as well.) The only downfall, besides the long wait, is the limited amount of green onions they give you. I remember a few years ago they actually charged my mom and I for extra green onions! We use them ferociously, but come on you can get four bunches for a dollar! (Or 48 bunches for a dollar if you go to the Korean market in LA.)
