Description: Shabu-shabu (hot pot) | Appetizers | Bubble Tea | Smoothies What's shabu-shabu? Here's a brief overview: The name "shabu-shabu" literally means "swish-swish". It comes from the sound and action of the thinly sliced meat being swished with chopsticks in the hot pot. Shabu is an Asian-style fondue that involves cooking thinly sliced raw meat, seafood and/or vegetables in a pot of broth. Shabu varies slightly by different cultures and different regions such as Taiwan, China, Japan, and Korea. At Splendid Shabu-- you're the chef! You pick the ingredients. You pick the broth. You create your own dipping sauce. There's no wrong way to enjoy it. How to shabu-shabu? 1. Select your BROTH, NOODLE, and COMBO from our menu. You may also add on extra a la carte items. 2. Once you've ordered, head to our Splendid SAUCE BAR to create your own dipping sauce! 3. When you're hot pot arrives, slowly and carefully submerge some of your veggies and noodles to cook. 4. Using chopsticks or tongs, take pieces of the thinly sliced raw meat and/or seafood then gently "swish-swish" in the pot. You may also use the handheld strainer. **Some seafood may require a longer cooking time. 5. If your utensils come in contact with raw meat, simply dip them into the pot for several seconds before using them. 6. Have fun, savory each bite, and ENJOY! **Shabu fares well with Bubble Tea, Beer, and Sake.

We went here because Trip Advisor rated it no. 1 in Pooler, Ga. Every table has a hot surface that cooks your food. We had the vegetarian and it was wonderful. The waitress was wonderful and helped us get exactly what we wanted. Great food and great service.

We have never had this type of dining experience before, but the staff was very helpful and walked us through everything. I loved the fresh vegetables and meats. The choice of stock (broth) was great too, because I love spicy and my hubbie likes traditional chicken broth. I enjoyed everything about it and then had over 2 quarts of leftovers when I finished. It was our first time there, but I promise it won't be our last. Delicious!!!!

The Splendid Shabu is a unique "hot pot" restaurant. Very simple and easy with the owner guiding you every step of the way. Full explanation of the process, food selection and final sauces are given to every customer.
Your food is cooked the way you like it by you while seated and in conversation with guest(s).

We will be going back very soon with other friends
