First Lamb Shabu
Where we've featured it
First Lamb Shabu, a hot pot chain with locations in China and in Flushing, has opened its first Manhattan restaurant in the East Village. Not only does the menu here have lamb, beef, ox, and seafood options for your hot pot, but there are also kitschy add-ons. We’re specifically intrigued by the block of congealed beef oil in the form of a 3D Hello Kitty doll. It reminds us of the spice packets and pastes you put in ramen.
