Shabu Japanese Fondue Restaurant Review

: Sacramento has its share of sushi restaurants, but Shabu broke the mold by opening the city's first Japanese fondue restaurant. It’s a do-it-yourself venture: tables are outfitted with a heating element, and diners cook the food themselves. The menu offers a variety of meats and seafood accompanied by assorted vegetables, tofu and noodles meant to be dunked in the diner’s choice of broth. Our favorite is the traditional Kobe-style beef, sliced paper thin, dipped in the flavorful miso. An all-you-can-eat option is available, which includes beef, lamb and chicken for $30, or add unlimited beer and saké for $10 more. For those who don’t feel like doing the work themselves, udon and curry are also offered, as well as several types of sushi. While the menu focuses on the traditional, the ambience is contemporary, with bright, modern artwork and flat-screen TVs. Large windows overlook the busy street outside, but the space seems a bit cramped.

The Shabu Shabu is terrific here. So flavorful and tasty. Easy relaxed atmosphere and fun waitstaff. Just thinking about Shabu is making my mouth water.
