Shabu Shabu in Nashua NH

San Francisco Kitchen has expanded and now has shabu shabu, a Japanese hot-pot style dish where various meats and veggies are swished around in hot broth, dipped in sauces and eaten. The tables have built-in heating units, and stainless bowls filled with a choice of kimchi (spicy) or miso broth are brought to the table. Meat choices include rib-eye, chicken, lamb, seafood, and ostrich. Veggies include bok choy, enoki mushrooms, carrots, and spinach, served with a side of udon noodles. Dipping sauce was soy-based with ginger and a heavy dollop of chopped garlic--great stuff. The food was delicious, and it's fun to share in the communal activity of cooking at the table. Now that the weather is getting cooler, this is a great choice for a hearty, warming meal.

  1. Thanks for posting. I was in the area last week and saw that they were hopping. I've probably driven by a hundred times and didn't even realize San Francisco Kitchen was there... Have you tried the sushi?

      Have not tried the sushi--I'm embarrassed to say I've lived in the area since the place opened, and it was my first visit. The place was packed the night we were there--there's a lively bar scene.
