Shabu means Swish, and there’s a new restaurant in Irvine in the Diamond Plaza off Jamboree and Alton.Located on the second floor, this location may be hard to find. What’s also hard to find is parking! No matter when you come, there’s more cars than spaces, and people are circling around like sharks.
I went for lunch, and got the small three item plate with pork, rib eye and short rib. Portions are fair, sauces are tasty, and, since it’s in Irvine, prices are ok. My small was $15 without drink, tax or tip.
