We first opened our doors in the winter of 2009. The first of our kind in Midtown Sacramento, we provide traditional Japanese-style hot pot, serving only the finest ingredients, quality meat, fresh seafood, and vegetables. Our broths and sauces are house-made and made daily. Because of our Midtown location, we're in close proximity to local markets, which provide access to fresh ingredients daily.
Shabu Japanese Fondue is a place for simplicity. Good food, good sake, and good service. Shabu-shabu is meant to be eaten slowly, allowing friends and family to get together to cook together. Come join us and see what simplicity tastes like.
John Voong started working in the restaurant industry at an early age. He worked for a number of years at Osaka Sushi in Elk Grove and Woodland, starting out as a busboy and quickly promoted to server, chef, then general manager.
John possesses an enormous joy in sharing his love for food with others. With an entrepreneurial mindset and love for Japanese cuisine, John is committed to bringing a fresh, healthy, and interactive dining experience to Midtown Sacramento. He feels Midtown is a great place to introduce this new food adventure because "a place like this doesn't exist in Sacramento." John emphasized, "I feel like Sacramentans are ready for something new."
John is accredited for developing most of the dishes on the menu. He is focused on continuing to offer superior service and sublime dishes for the enjoyment of his patrons.
