A cook-your-own-meal place, it offers one solid hour of “eatertainment” as you swish paper-thin slices of rib-eye beef, vegetables, and noodles in a vat of boiling water at the center of your table, and then dip them into two contrasting sauces—a tangy soy-vinegar mix and a lush sesame sauce. After you finish your main dish, you’re given little bowls for spooning out the “soup” you’ve created while dipping. The food is simple yet flavorful and the cooking so much fun that even picky children will chow down (though because of the possibility of burns, I wouldn’t recommend Shabu Tatsu for kids under 4).
