Shabu shabu is a Japanese soup not unlike the Chinese hot pot or Vietnamese pho. At Shabu House, you can sit at one of the 28 places at the horseshoe-shaped bar. In front of each seat is a burner with a pot of boiling broth in which you cook your food. The broth is made with kelp and tastes like miso.
