Continuing an age-old Japanese culinary tradition, Shabu-Ya specializes in shabu-shabu, or hot pot––a modern take on the steaming soups historically eaten by Genghis Khan and his armies. The café's sleekly modern interior is designed to evoke the colors and shapes of this signature dish, from vegetable-green couches to round hanging lights that recall bubbles in boiling broth. Meals can begin with seaweed-encircled sushi while diners decide which meats and veggies to simmer in a choice of shabu-shabu broths such as Korean kimchi and vegetarian mushroom. Kitchen specials also offer Black Angus rib eye or chili-marinated pork bulgoki to build hearty hot pots, and are flavorful ways to change up an all-mayonnaise diet.
The atmosphere is colorful, kind of funky and is fairly welcoming...The staff was really great and was extremely helpful.Christian H., Yelp, 4/12/12
I was impressed by fresh and good quality meat and vegetables. Their kim chi broth was amazingly savory adding up the flavor to each ingredient.Ash C., Yelp, 4/3/13
