has become a local fad in the last few years - a transparent petal of prime beef swished through bubbling broth for a second or two, just until the pink becomes frosted with white. You can find shabu shabu
restaurants now in half the suburbs in the county. But when the dish is done correctly - and if the quality of the meat and vegetables is as high as it is at Little Tokyo's superb (and expensive) Kagaya - the texture is extraordinary, almost liquid, and the concentrated, sourish flavor of really good beef becomes vivid. $45-$138 fixed-price.
