New eats: Shabu Shabu King

Share Button

Oahu is littered with hot pot eateries, from the Thai-style Bangkok Shabu Shabu on Kapahulu Avenue to the casual Hanaki Restaurant in Manoa to the uber-popular Taiwanese Sweet Home Cafe in Moiliili.

So why do we need another one?

Because none — except the new Shabu Shabu King — is open until 2 a.m. Every single day.

This latest addition to the shabu shabu scene opened last month in the space vacated by TCBY on South King Street near Puck’s Alley. And while the broth, prices and service are fairly average, there are two things that set Shabu Shabu King apart from the others: interesting menu items and late-night hours.

Here’s what we ate on a recent visit:
