Just had some lunch at Shabu-Zen in Chinatown on Tyler Street. The food was fantastic...cool shabu-shabu style set right into the table or bar. Great fresh ingredients, clean slick atmosphere and the friendliest staff around. Haven't had a great time like this one in a while. Anyone else?
We went there last Friday and I agree it was really good, really fresh, and really fun. My favorite was the Napa cabbage. And for those who were fearing the pork broth discussed on this board earlier, you can get vegetarian broth (as well as Chinese herb broth, kimchee broth, or tahi tod yum broth). I got the veg. broth (seaweed flavored, very good). It was very crowded and for thoese who were unwilling to sit at the counter (which I think is more fun becuase the broth bowl is then set into the counter rather than perched on the table) the wait was quite long.
