Shabu Japanese Fondue Restaurant Review

: Shabu is one of the first restaurants in Sacramento to focus exclusively on the art of Japanese fondue. The do-it-yourself setup allows guests to cook their own soup over a simmering pot on each table, adding ingredients to their liking. Diners choose a broth, which includes soy sauce, salt and seaweed, spicy miso and chicken, as well as a protein and vegetables. While pork, lamb, chicken and seafood are available, we like the traditional thin-sliced Kobe-style beef. There’s an all-you-can-eat option, too, with or without unlimited beer and saké. For those who don’t feel like doing the work themselves, udon and curry are also offered, as are several types of sushi.
