House of Shabu Shabu in Irvine Reopens After Car Crash


In July, a car crashed into Irvine's House of Shabu Shabu, throwing the restaurant's future into question. Repair work appeared stalled for months behind an obscuring green fence that displayed a work-stoppage notice from the city's building inspectors.

Then as suddenly as the fence appeared, it was gone, and yesterday, House of Shabu Shabu reopened.

To put it in perspective, here's the before photo from July:

That'll buff out.
