Foursquare Tips

  • Sake!
  • A hands-on approach to dining, Shabu-Zen lets you cook your own food at your table in a piping hot broth. Not sure if you want beef or pork? You can cook up both, with your choice of veggies.
  • This is literally the best meal I have ever eaten. And I have eaten a lot of meals. The meat is incredibly fresh. You make your own broth and it just gets better and better as the meal goes on.
  • Tom yum broth, veggie Gyoza, fruit smoothies and green tea Mochi!
  • Try the Pork And Beef For Hot Pot - Thinly sliced perfect for soup.
  • My first time at a hotpot place. Don't freak out, the staff are very helpful. For a first time try the herbal chicken broth and the pork broth with the beef. Best of luck!
  • Vegan friendly, food is delicious!!
  • Find the tile with the maple leaf in the ceiling
  • Try the Baby Octopus - Sweet tasting baby Octopus us delicate due in part to the sesame seeds on it.
  • If you're looking for delicious, authentic hot pot, go to Chinatown. Try the Takoyaki appetizer and a side of mushrooms and fish paste. My favorite trick - ask for a raw egg to cook in the broth.
  • try the Mongolian broth. Very spicy but not over powering be careful not to eat the red chiles though!
  • I love the A3 and a Lychee Smoothie!! :D
  • Try the beef tongue. And always order Sapporo Silver.
  • Delicious every time! I usually sit at the bar & get the A10 Meat Combo or A11 Surf&Turf. The Sapporo Silver is always cold. Get the chocolate truffle ice cream for dessert- so good!!
  • Seafood platter is great!
  • The beef hot pot and the vegetable dumplings are a must have.
  • Besides the shabu, gyoza is also good.
  • Gyoza here are great
  • Quick and good service, quicker than others hotpots places I've been. The hotpot was so tasty (the meat was awesome!). Also, they've got alcohol so that was music for my ears.
  • Hot pot is excellent
