Shabu shabu in SGV??

I have been craving shabu shabu for awhile now and can't seem to find a great shabu shabu place that is not incredibly expensive. Suggestions?? Thanks!

    Little Fat Sheep (now renamed Hot Pot Hot Pot) in Monterey Park, hands down. Hot pot, not shabu shabu technically...

      Pickins are pretty slim for shabu shabu in SGV.

      Best bet may be Mr. Shabu Shabu on the NE corner of San Gabriel and Las Tunas.

      If you really want to scratch your itch for shabu shabu suck it up and take the 10-15 minute drive to Little Tokyo and go to Kagaya or Shabu Shabu House.

        Oooh yeah I've been to Kagaya but it's a little steep for a normal night for dinner... Shabu shabu house is always packed. But I'll check out Mr. Shabu shabu! Thanks!
