We met our friend for dinner at Shabu Shabu Bar in Santa Ana.
Cute table setting. I'm very into details so the little things are noticeable to me.
Here we are grinding our own sesame seeds for the peanut sauce. It was harder than I thought.
The red drops are spicy drops. Can you guess which one's mine?
We got 2 orders of this to share among us 4...talk about major food coma afterwards!
Lychee & peach sakes - aka "sake in a bottle." I really wanted to keep one of those bottles for myself. They're so cool looking aren't they?
It was quite interesting that they made the soup for us. That was a nice surprise.
Black sesame ice cream - omg have you ever had this before? It was GOOD and so was their green tea ice cream! I forgot to take a picture of that one but it was really rich in flavor. You must save room for dessert here!
Thanks Shabu Shabu Bar for such an awesome first experience here! The wait was short, the staff were friendly, the food was great, and the place was beautiful! See you again soon. I can't wait to try the other meats and more bar drinks! ;)
