THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bob’s 88 Shabu Shabu Restaurant Review

: Bob’s Noodle 66 is established across the street, but at this eatery, Bob---as in Bob Liu, the owner of the successful restaurant duo---has his eye on a different way of eating Asian: shabu shabu, the Japanese communal cook pot that holds bubbling stock in which to cook a large selection of meats and veggies, noodles and tofu, even raw eggs. A cold-weather dining treat, this shabu shabu entails individual cook pots so each patron can select his seasoning sauces and main course meats, and cook what and when he wants. Divvy up beef, pork and lamb, mixing and matching to pair with platters of veggies. For the uninitiated, the staff obligingly explains the ropes, offering tips on cooking, seasoning and eating. Since there’s plenty to boil, and seconds on cooking stock if you wish, you leave Bob’s feeling comfortably replete. Not into hot pot fare? Bob’s offers an extensive non-shabu shabu selection of dishes, including assorted rice and noodle stir-fries, teriyaki entrées, standard Chinese specialties such as General Tso’s chicken, vegetable accompaniments, and even a few sushi dishes.
