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.
  • Really great hot pot!
  • This is the best of the best when it comes to hotpot! Don't be afraid to try the beef tongue appetizer. So damn good.
  • The kimchi broth is most excellent!
  • 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.
