Hot Pot/shabu shabu in Chicago?

ellenmellen Aug 15, 2011 09:16 AM

What's the best place in Chicago (pref metro area) for hot pot/shabu shabu? I read that Lao Beijing offers this, but anyone know if it's good? Or, if there are other suggestions?

I'm new to the city - have been through a lot of the "eat this in chicago" places, but now on one of those kicks to find things that remind me of home cooking...

    For Chinese hot pot, the best place in Chicago is Mandarin Kitchen.

      I have been to Shabu House in Niles and it is good. Not like Korea, but quite adequate. Note they are closed Sundays and are not BYOB.

        Anyone remember the name of the place in Uptown/Koreatown by Lawrence Ave that had Kobe/Waygu beef as a Shabu option?
