Irvine's House of Shabu Shabu Closed (Temporarily?)

Irvine's House of Shabu Shabu Closed (Temporarily?)

Strange things are afoot at the House of Shabu Shabu. The restaurant is cordoned off by green fencing, and the City of Irvine's Building & Safety Division has posted a Stop-Work Notice that reads, "No work permitted until permits obtained. No gas turn-on without city approval."

The city's notice is dated July 19. The restaurant's glass storefront is partially demolished and covered over with black plastic sheeting.

A message dated July 9 on the restaurant's answering machine says a car crashed into the restaurant, and "we will be closed for at least a week or so and hope to reopen as soon as possible."

At this point, those are the facts of the matter. We'll update as we find out more.
