Irvine Restaurant Week: Try swishing at SWSH Shabu Shabu  

Almost three dozen Irvine restaurants are participating in Irvine Restaurant Week, which is in full swing right now. It began on January 11 and lasts through January 17th. There are no tickets required. Just go to any of the participating restaurants, which are all listed on the Destination Irvine website. Irvine, conveniently located in the center of Orange County, California, is easily accessible within an hour or so from Los Angeles, San Diego or Riverside. Prix fixe specials for lunch and dinner are offered at special prices at each participating restaurant.

An example of one of the outstanding restaurants participating in Irvine Restaurant Week is SWSH Shabu Shabu. This unique restaurant is located in the Diamond Jamboree shopping center located at Alton Parkway and Jamboree Rd. This is a fascinating, international shopping and dining retail center which features boutiques, a bakery, a grocery store and restaurants, all with varying ethnic and cultural themes.

SWSH Shabu Shabu was founded in October, 2011, by a group of shabu shabu enthusiasts who decided to share their favorite meal with their community. "Shabu Shabu" is a popular Japanese dish where thinly sliced meats, fish and vegetables are "swished" in a cooking pot with boiling kelp water.

Since its beginning, SWSH Shabu Shabu has become a favorite among locals and tourists alike. Many customers (such as this reporter) happily drive an hour or more to visit this popular spot because of its fresh, unique cuisine. It's a bit like taking a quick trip to Japan without hopping on a plane. For an hour or so, you are in another world.Almost three dozen Irvine restaurants are participating in Irvine Restaurant Week, which is in full swing right now.
