A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: Together Pot, Hawaii Original and Hot and Spicy ($11)

Bountiful is the first of many adjectives to describe Hawaii Pot Shabushabu House. The delectable eatery opened its second location on Sheridan Street in mid-October (the first is in Kapolei).

Complete with a sauce bar and tables with built-in flat burners for every customer, the restaurant is the first shabu-shabu house in the state with a conveyor belt that delivers your favorite shabu-shabu sides right before your eyes. The eatery’s selection includes a variety of soup bases, seafood, meats, sides and sauces.

“With a combination of it all, it’s like you have everything in one spot,” says manager Rodd Sarae. Diners can choose to have either a Personal Pot with one soup base or a Together Pot with at least two soup bases. Cater to your taste buds with two of its most popular soups: Hawaii Original and Hot and Spicy. The flavorful Hawaii Original is mild yet rich with a porkand chicken-bone base, while Hot and Spicy is described as being a seven or eight on a spiciness scale of one to 10.

All soups are made fresh every day. Customers can look forward to the daily buffet ($16.99 adults, $11.99 children) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a 30 percent discount on its entire menu from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
