I was always skeptical of hot pot places until I saw Swish Shabu on groupon last year and thought I'd give it a try. What a great decision! I go back at least once a month because the food, atmosphere and servers are so great! Tom Yum broth is my favorite and I get the vegetarian combo plate that is packed with FRESH broccoli, bok choy, watercress, spinach, cabbage, and differnt types of tofu! So healthy but filling and satisfying also. The veggies change sometimes but they are always fresh and delicious! I always have left overs too which is great. The servers are happy to wrap up whatever you can't finish. There's always a smiling host to seat you and the servers are all so knowledgable and happy to be there. They also have sushi and differnt yummy Asian appetizers too. Awesome place overall!! Must go!

Stopped by here sort of on a whim last night when walking by. Turned out to be a great decision! The "swish swish" or "shabu" method of broth pot cooking involves a boiling pot of tasty broth, and plates of various vegetables and/or meats that you dip and then swish around in there. Over a dozen different broths are available (I intend to come back and taste some more!) and a great assortment of meat and vegetarian combo plates. A great addition to restaraunt row on peterborough street by Fenway park. Great for couples or groups. Might be a little bit intimidating if you don't like to try new things, but definitely worth it and an adventure.
