With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of shabu-shabu cuisine at Ka Shabu in Huntington Beach.
Ka Shabu puts diners' flavor fates in their own hands with its cook-it-yourself hot-pot serving style, which comes with a wide range of quality ingredients for building culinary masterworks. Sift through the menu for an entree such as shrimp ($17.50) or Angus beef ($18.50), then boil your meat and veggies in a simmering pool party, complete with neighbors of rice and soup as well as edible lifeguards of udon or glass noodles ($4.50). Fresh-ground sesame seeds enrich the sesame dipping sauce, and the signature sweet-and-sour Ponzu sauce gilds morsels with a tart citrus finish. The helpful staff walks throughout the sleek restaurant, guiding newcomers, seated at curved tabletops, through the shabu-shabu process to ensure they fully cook their meals instead of their napkins.
Diners take the reins and forge their own meals at Ka Shabu, an upscale Asian-style fondue joint in downtown Huntington Beach. Premium meats such as Kobe and Angus beef, chicken, salmon, and shrimp simmer in pots according to Ka Shabu's cooking guide before guests fish out the morsels and dip them in customizable sauces alongside fresh veggies, udon and rice noodles, and steamed white or brown rice. Even though all the meal-preparing power and palm-reading information lies in patrons' hands, Ka Shabu's friendly attendants always wait nearby to assist with any questions. Inside the eatery, wood-accented tables and chairs surround a grand open kitchen and a bar that serves up martinis and flavor-infused sakes.
