Shabu House - Burlingame

4/5 stars

There were 12 of us. We were loud. We ate and drank A LOT! A LOT! A LOT! But the service was awesome. They were attentive and polite. Great place for big groups. It was a modern, clean space. Wear a t-shirt, though. It gets super hot!

I got the all-you-can-eat-and-drink for $41 and I thought it was great. You can choose from 3 broths (water, spicy miso, and chicken ginger) and 3 meats (beef, pork, and lamb). Dessert - green tea or red bean ice cream - and soda is included.

The veggies plate was clean and fresh. There were two kinds of mushrooms, cabbage, spinach, udon noodles, and tofu. You could also ask for white rice. When you asked for anything extra, they brought out a ton of it. Shabu House is definitely NOT skimpy.

I really enjoyed the two sauces that came with the meats. One was a soy and tasted great loaded up with garlic and green onions. The other was a creamy peanut.

There were three beers to choose from (I prefer Kirin) and house sake.

Thank you, Shabu House. We had a great time celebrating my dear friend's 30th birthday here.

FYI: unlimited alcohol apparently has a two-hour time limit.
