DETAILS

The Japanese delicacy shabu shabu tops the menu at Little Toyko spot Kagaya. 

 

Beer, wine and sake available. Serving dinner Tue–Sun. Closed Mon. From LA Weekly:
"Shabu shabu 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. … 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. "

"I'm not exactly a shabu-shabu connoisseur, so unfortunately I can't definitively say that Kagaya reigns supreme in L.A. However, I am a food connoisseur, and I can say that this was a pretty damn good meal notwithstanding. You can tell that the kitchen puts a lot of effort into this typically humble cuisine. This extra care is apparent on the plate, and on the palate, and makes me willing to wager that indeed, Kagaya is the best shabu-shabu in town."
