Another from our Cali roadtrip! This is a shabu shabu shop near where we were staying in Long Beach! The menu is basically completely customizable–down to the number of drops (yes drops!) of hot chili oil you want/need!
Jas got the sukiyaki. The broth was very flavorful. Maybe even too flavorful? I felt that it was too sweet for my liking, but Jas liked it a lot. You cook your meat/egg/noodles/veg in this sauce concoction and eat it! We both chose 1 drop of chili oil, and it was spicy enough for us!
One portion of pork and salmon. Yeah, that’s not that much meat!
Here’s a person’s worth of shrimp and beef. I say for the price, it was better value to get shrimp and beef rather than pork and fish. I’ll remember this next time.
I really liked the interior of the place. It’s artsy without being in your face about it, which I enjoyed.
