This Japanese Shabu hot pot is delicious. Make sure to soak in all the ingredients, even the vegetables. At the end of cooking all the meat, noodles and vegetable, the broth is a delight to drink.

Outstanding service, super fresh food, delicious bases. A must go to when in the Boston metro area. Well worth the trip to North Quincy. Try the Japanese curry base and order any of the combos that include a great veggie plate.

My wife and I and older girls went to Shabu because we've been wanting to try a true "hotpot" restaurant and there is a serious lack of them anywhere near southern NH. In this case, the drive was worth it! We were seated at a...More
