White Men Can't Shabu Shabu

It was Saturday night and C asked me what I wanted to have for dinner, I blinked a few times, and said, shabu shabu! So we headed over to California Shabu Shabu in Fountain Valley... it's in a positively dilapidated strip mall, but the restaurant itself is modern and clean.
While our pots were boiling away...
I couldn't help but notice the confused look on this gentleman's face. He was obviously a newbie to shabu shabu and was not sure what to do... so he dumped everything, meat, veggies, noodles, into the pot at once. Aiyaya... proper shabu shabu etiquette is as follows: put some veggies into the pot, when water comes to boil, take one piece of meat at a time, shabu shabu in the boiling water, take meat out just as it is cooked, dip in sesame sauce, and savor the tenderness. Mmmmm... but alas, this gentlemen ended up with a pot of ramen noodle soup. Sigh, white men (with shiny heads) can't shabu shabu :P

This place is pretty good! My brother Shawn actually took me to this exact same spot years ago! They opened another spot in Costa Mesa.
