We offer two different hot pot experiences at Ushabu. First, our namesake, shabu shabu, the Japanese nabemono hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water. The term is onomatopoeic, derived from the sound emitted when the ingredients are stirred in the cooking pot and served with dipping sauces

Secondarily, we also offer ishiyaki, wherein we present a small konro grill and a hot stone. We invite you to cook your thinly sliced proteins on the stone. And also enjoy an assortment of sides, soup, and rice
