Vinelady: May I recommend several Japanese Restaurants that serve Shabu-Shabu in Seatle. Toyoda Sushi, Sanmi Sushi and Yoshinobo Japanese Restaurant. These are 3 i've tried the dish at, but i'm sure that most are able to set up and serve this dish, once saw it being served at Maniki. There are other restaurants that serve variations of Shabu-Shabu. Korean Restaurants in Seattle and Lakewood serve a incrediable version, as well as several Chinese Restaurants. One place that has recently opened "Seven Stars Szechuan Restaurant" located at 1207 South Jackson, 2end Floor is operated by a couple who owned a restaurant in Szechuan China over 20 years, famous for it's Hot Pots. If i'm not mistaken all asian hot pots evolved from Szechuan including Shabu-Shabu. This is the most popular Hot Pot served in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Maylasia, Los Angeles and Vancover. I hope they've started serving Hot Pots, but every thing they serve is very good.
