We wanted to give the concept of shabu shabu a modern twist -- from the lounge atmosphere, to the musical selection, to the food and beverage menu. What you will find at Shabu Club is flavor and variety, which reflects the eclectic culture of San Francisco. Although shabu shabu originated in Japan, you will discover Italian influences in the homemade "green sauce" and calamari; Mexican inventiveness with the kobe beef fries; Hawaiian inspiration in the ahi tuna poke; and hints of Korea in the kimchi and soju. The richness of the diverse tastes fused with traditional dining customs truly makes an evening at Shabu Club an experience.

For the well-read beef eaters out there, you know that "American style Kobe" doesn't really mean much. I can however attest to the quality of the beef here, which is tender and full of flavor. The special green sauce here adds a kick to the traditional ayce shabu menu. Be persistent and you'll get all the meat you want. The place is busy so don't expect the wait staff to constantly come to you.

Best shabu I've ever had. Their dipping sauce is amazing and I can actually taste the broth on my meat at this place.

Expect a long wait at the door if you're bigger than a party of 1. If you are a party of 1, there is usually available seating right away at the bar, which has the exact same food options and table seating. (Tip for parties of 2: ask for bar seating too for quicker seating). All pots are the split pots, so you get the option of two broths, which is great for the indecisive like me! The 3 meat combo option was ~$20.50, with American Kobe beef, premium lamb (I don't know what makes it premium...), and Kurobuta pork. The pork was my favorite of the three meats. It held up well in the hot broth, unlike the beef or lamb, which seemed to disintegrate or fall apart. The house special cilantro sauce was pretty good, but feel free to request the traditional ponzu sauce at no extra charge if you prefer that. Vegetables are included and contain: napa cabbage, spinach, enoki and cremini mushrooms, baby carrots,firm tofu, and udon and ramen noodles. Green tea or red bean ice cream is complementary at the end of the meal.

My favorite hot pot spot in SF! The cilantro ponzu dipping sauce is addicting. I usually get the AYCE option.

Great hot pot place, a combination of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese tastes. Shabu Club should expand its business!

Plusses: - The spicy tonkatsu broth was amazing. - We had six people, so they brought out 4 kinds of broth. I really appreciated having all that choice! - The meat choices (lamb, beef, pork) were pretty good, even though my group eventually settled on the lamb. Minuses: - The server replenishing the spicy tonkatsu broth wasn't very careful about it. The broth separated into a layer of fat and sesame oil on the top of the pitcher, and the actual broth on the bottom, so when it was poured out, we got too much of the top non-broth layer. - More mushroom and tofu options would be welcome. Better tofu, for sure.
