Go. Go. Shabu. Shabu. (Asians have a way of repeating words and I love it.) Now if you’re enjoying the cooler weather we’re having as much as I do, then you know it’s time for soups. I’ve waited all year for this: so I can eat (Korean) soups again. Go Go Shabu Shabu opened before the summer and I’ve been meaning to try it out. First thing I noticed about this place is the color of the walls. It’s a migraine-inducing, obnoxious lime. It’s catchy. It’s different. But trust me, take that Maxalt before hand.
So what to eat at this place? Well, shabu shabu, of course! Cooked table-side, a big pot of broth good enough for two is served with an assortment of veggies (yes, I ate them), and paper-thin slices of beef brisket. You let the soup boil and add veggies and the meat to it. Mmmm.
One thing about this place, though, is that I found their broth to be lacking in flavor. You’ll have to doctor it like we did. A splash of this, a shake of that, a spoon of this, and voila– good, hearty soup. $29.99 for two. In the Assi Plaza Suwanee.
