California Shabu Shabu – (714) 963-8844 – Fountain Valley

California Shabu Shabu – (714) 963-8844 – Fountain Valley – 18908 Brookhurst St, 92708 – www.calshabu.com

A crowded place where you go and have a hot pot type meal and cook your raw meat and veggies in the hot pot in front of you. Food was pricey and a little tasteless since everything was basically boiled but you feel virtuous in not eating any fried or greasy. The service wasn’t that great here. You wait for a LONG time and I didn’t find the young waiters very friendly. They were very busy and we had to repeatedly ask for things that should have been standard. I would not come here again due to the long wait and poor service I encountered on my last visit in 2010.
