Mokkoji Shabu Shabu Bar
The mastermind behind this low-key shabu bar is originally from Dana Point's swanky St. Regis, and it shows in the quality of the produce he throws down on each plate of beef and seafood. Oh, and everything is sided with the traditional shabu veggie trimmings, so be sure to add the actually-really-good Squid Ink Porridge. With three Orange County locations and another in Riverside, there are plans to open additional outposts in Cerritos and San Diego as well.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome.
