Best Shabu in SoCal

Hi everyone,

i'm starting to get back into Shabu, since it's getting cold.

What are some suggestions?

So far, my fav is Shabu house in Japanese Village, LA.

        Shimiphany speaks the truth. This place has EXCELLENT shabu shabu. Be prepared to pay though - this place is not cheap. A dinner for two people with moderate amounts of beer or sake can run slightly over $100.

          Yeah I think Kagaya is the best in town.

      2. I, too, liked Shabu House in Little Tokyo & Koji's in Highland & Hollywood (not as authentic, but lots of varieties and other foods for the shabu-averse)... but that's only when I'm too lazy to fire up my mini gas stove.

        Of course, making your own at home is the best! Choose all the meats and veggies you want! Clean-up isn't that bad either.
