Shabu-Shabu, is a neat concept, where all friends and family crowd around a pot of bubbly hot broth and boil anything that cooks. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese term, however, this custom of communal cooking and sharing has been in the Asian cultures for a long time. You know this because every family has its own recipe for soup and ingredient list. There are a few places to experience this craze around Boston, one of my favorite is Kaze. Walking into this neo-lighted spot, you’ll find a clean, aesthetically pleasing sitting area. Now, you may be startled by the menu, because as you can see in the picture, it’s all raw food. No worries, the patient, acknowledgeable staffs are trained to answer all your questions.
They’ll recommend proper portions and items for your parties. I know the idea seems crazy, but a little soup is good for the heart and a little love is good for the soul, especially in this chilling winter season.
Kaza is at 1 Harrison Ave. When you call (617) 338-8283 ask for Mary Xu and she will take care of you.
