Shabu House

We were on our way back from dropping off some friends at SFO when we stopped in Burlingame for a late dinner. We had heard that Shabu House was good, and we agree. Shabu is a Japanese cuisine, similar to hotpot. We visited one in Mountain View when we lived in California last time.

We had the spicy miso broth. Jonathan got the lamb and beef combo platter, and I actually went with unagi (eel) on rice. It was the largest helping of eel I've ever been served, and it was delicious! At the end I was getting a little tired of the flavor, but I don't regret getting that giant piece of eel. We both had an assortment of vegetables and tofu to cook as well. The carrots were pretty good, but the bean sprouts, lettuce, spinach, and other items weren't all that great. After we added some garlic to the broth it helped a bunch, and the vinegary soy sauce also helped with the flavor a bit. We were seated about half an hour before closing, but we were definitely rushed a bit as we were there until about 15 minutes after closing. I dunno... I gotta say that this shabu thing is not growing on me, LoL. Still, it was a fun time. And I actually imagine that we will be back, since they offer an all-you-can-eat-and-drink thing that excited some of our friends.
