I usually write these reviews 6 months after I visit but not this time. Looking for something sort of healthy I could walk to from my hotel and there I was. Never heard of Shabu Shabu before but hot mama and the gang explained everything. The sauces are from scratch and tasty with fresh veggies and seafood. You swish the food in water and dip in sauce.My favorite was the sauce for rice with Serrano peppers. Like nothing I had before because the soy absorbs the heat. Also had nigiri that was awesome. The locals dine here and were so happy to explain the concept and tell me what was best. What could have been a dismal night dining solo turned out to be so fun. It's a must.
