Five Things to Know About Shabu House
At a handful of locations around the city, Shabu House puts a modern spin on shabu-shabu, a traditional Japanese dish in which diners place thin slices of beef in a communal pot of boiling water. Read on for a few more tips about this interactive, one-pot method of cooking.
- Boiling water isn’t the only option. Shabu House offers flavored soups, as well, including ginger chicken and the popular spicy miso.
- Vegetables accompany the meat. These include mushrooms, cabbage, tofu, and spinach. Udon noodles also come along for the ride.
- There’s an all-you-can-eat option. It’s ideal for groups, and, for a few extra bucks, it comes with an all-you-can-drink option. The only kicker: parties of two or more must have the same soup order.
- They serve nearly 10 specialty sakes. You can order one by the bottle, or try a few at a time with a sake flight. Otherwise, you can always just stick to the various imported beers.
They have a happy hour. It occurs during 5 and 6 p.m. and knocks 15% off the bill.
