Shabu Shabu, one of the most popular Japanese eateries in Santa Ana, is also rumored to feature a fantastic and impressive sake collection. Located on 17th Street, the charming restaurant, done up with deep reds and oriental elements, welcomes and usually caters to large groups and families. The food menu, on the other hand, is built around the shabu shabu-style (Japanese hotpot) of cooking where the diners choose a main ingredient, usually a meat, and cook it in boiling water along with various other herbs, condiments and spices - the result is a truly delicious, exotic meal that the entire family create and can enjoy together! Although meat and poultry preparations such as kobe beef and rib-eye shabu shabu are highly recommended, their vegan and vegetarian selections are quite delectable as well. Don't forget to complement this wonderful meal, with one of their sake drinks; take the help the courteous waitstaff if necessary - they'll be happy to help!

Sip Japanese beer and sake or order a less exotic bottle of wine from the extensive list with bottles from $8-$75.
