Shabu Shabu Brings Diners Home

Shabu Shabu House has spent nearly a decade providing a home for diners to enjoy healthy Japanese cooking, where hearty and satisfying menu selections are prepared right at the table.

Conveniently located on Kapiolani Boulevard, Shabu Shabu House offers an assortment of fresh meats, including beef, pork, chicken, lamb and various seafood options in addition to fresh vegetables and satisfying side dishes. Customers prepare the food by submerging the thinly sliced meat or vegetables in a pot of boiling water flavored with seaweed, and swishing it back and forth several times. The term shabu shabu directly translates to “swish swish,” mimicking the sound one makes while cooking the food.
