Shabu-Shabu Secret Sauce


If you’ve been reading this blog, you’d remember me reviewing the Shabu-Shabu House in Little Tokyo.  What I said in that review was that their little secret was their great ponzu sauce.

Well, guess what?


On my recent visit, I discovered this little bottle on the table next to the sign-up sheet.  I asked the chef and all he told me was, and I’m quoting here, “Coming soon!”

Yes, they are going to bottle their secret sauce and sell it.  This is very interesting from a business and marketing point of view.  On one hand, this will bring people to the restaurant.  But on the other hand, it might cause people to make their own Shabu-Shabu at home.

Well, that’s for business and economic brains to work out.  It doesn’t change anything for me because I can’t cook.
