Unlike most cookware but much like most professional wrestlers, hot pots only reach their boiling point when people are watching. Set your sights on a simmering meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese hot-pot fare at Shabu Pub.
The culinary masters at Shabu Pub craft a menu of authentic Japanese shabu shabu—savory hot pots of delicate cuts of meat and veggies. Begin crafting a hot pot with one of four soup bases, which include building blocks of flavor such as spicy and regular miso, Mongolian-style, traditional water, and leprechaun tears. The thinly sliced, rib-eye-beef shabu shabu calms carnivorous cravings ($10.99/regular lunch, $12.99/regular dinner), and the seafood shabu shabu, packed with shrimp and mussels, keeps seafoodies' hunger tides receding ($12.99/regular lunch, $15.99/regular dinner). Other lunch and dinner options include pork, chicken, lamb, and a vegetarian shabu shabu ($9.99/regular size for lunch and dinner). After you make your savory selection, a steaming, delectable pot of broth will materialize out of thick air and land at your table, accompanied with assorted vegetables, udon noodles, and rice, and followed by a sweet scoop of ice cream.
Shabu Pub’s interior is peppered with big bamboo trees, fountains, and globe lighting accents. Its casual ambiance lets diners boil up and devour at any pace, whether they're having dinner with friends or getting reacquainted with a long-lost teddy bear.
