1. The restaurant has a sleek modern edge to it along with a really fun staff. Stephen Le and Ming Li, shown in the pictures, are two of the business partners for SWSH Shabu Shabu and they want patrons to come in and have a great experience. SWSH Shabu Shabu is located on the second floor of the Diamond Jamboree in Irvine. They couldn’t have picked a better location. Anything that you may ever want to try, taste, see, smell, or touch is right in this area.
2. The shabu shabu process may be something you’ve never tried, and may fall in love with. The nerve of these guys. You will sit there and cook your food in the broth. While it is cooking away you may have to actually talk to others around you. New friends may become reality, along with possible networking opportunities. Pff, who needs that in their life?
The broth bowl is split in half with a sweet-ish sukiyaki broth on one side and a spicy kombu on the other. There are seemingly endless cooking combinations that you can do. I never knew what a daikon radish was until I came here, and now I search for them, especially the pickled ones!
3. The sake and tasty beer selection is extensive. Ginjo, Daiginjo, Junmai, Junmai Ginjo, Junmai Daiginjo, and Honjozo; these are just the sakes!
This was just a short snapshot to show you that in order to patron SWSH Shabu Shabu you need to be willing to have a great time, enjoying great people, amazing food, and taste bud tripping sippables.
