Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Japan built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Japanese creations with today's Groupon at Shabu Japanese Fondue, located in Midtown. Shabu crafts traditional Japanese-style "shabu shabu" hot pot dishes, which preps all the individual meats and vegetables, then presents them tableside so that diners can have fun blending them together into a bowl that fits their taste buds like a tailored tongue suit. Shabu also whips up a wide range of sushi, curries, and udon from fresh, high-end ingredients. Broths and sauces are made fresh daily. Check out the full menu.
- …the resulting meal is gloriously simple, delicious and—yes—entertaining. A fog of fragrant steam from your broth will infiltrate your hair and clothes (don’t plan on wearing that wool sweater the next morning), but you’ll enjoy the delicacy of the quickly simmered meats and vegetables; the slippery, mushy comfort of the noodles; and the light, custardy texture of the tofu, all plucked, steaming, from the bubbling broth. – Kira O'Donnell, Sacramento
- Shabu is a great, fun, entertaining place that you will love to bring people to.. – Heather c., Yelp
Shabu Japanese Fondue
Voted Sacramento Magazine's best shabu-shabu restaurant in 2010, Shabu Japanese Fondue is named after its signature menu item, shabu-shabu—a dish that is cooked and eaten at the table. After submerging delicate slices of meat, seafood, or vegetables into a bubbling pot of savory, housemade broth, diners stir up the contents in order to cook the ingredients. This stirring action results in a "swish, swish," or "shabu-shabu," sound.
Guests can enjoy this style of dining while perched on white bar stools at a community table or at individual tables. Each table has a metal hole in the middle where the hot shabu-shabu pots sit or whack-a-moles hide, waiting to surprise guests.
