Quickly expanding Los Angeles-based shabu shabu restaurant franchise Yojie Japanese Fondue is making plans to bring their mixture of art gallery, dining and lots of visitor participation in making their meal to Las Vegas.
Pronounced yo-gee-ay, CEO Mendrick Leelin explains if you can dip chips into salsa you can cook shabu shabu, or as they prefer to call it, Japanese fondue. Focused around pots of boiling water, diners "swish-swish" items like Kobe style or Angus beef, salmon, chicken, vegetables and noodles which are rapidly cooked in the pots. The compact menu also includes desserts and a selection of sake and cocktails.
Early renderings by Schism Design architecture & interiors for Las Vegas build on the very stylish three California locations with clean marble top counters, built in burners and stools lined up at the proposed, but as yet unrevealed long rectangular location.
While the Vegas spot has yet to be announced, a concurrent expansion to Downtown Santa Ana is aiming for a winter 2014 opening.
