UPDATE: The owner of Yojie has just updated us that while Yojie does offer an AYCE option at the Diamond Bar branch, this planned DTSA Yojie will not.
Just when you thought Downtown Santa Ana is all about the Fourth Street Market and all that's hip and new there, now there's also word that a Japanese shabu shabu joint called Yojie Japanese Fondue is planning to open right next to the Yost Theater at Fourth and Bush.
The restaurant–with locations in Diamond Bar, LA and Artesia–is known for its all-you-can-eat (within 2-hours) specials ($14.99 for lunch; $16.99 for dinner), where you can swish and swirl beef, pork, chicken and fish in a heated pot of broth or water. Then for dessert, it offers chocolate fondue.
Yojie is also developing the same concept in Vegas. Check here for more news on the SanTana store as it comes.
Before becoming an award-winning restaurant critic for OC Weekly in 2007, Edwin Goei went by the alias “elmomonster” on his blog Monster Munching, in which he once wrote a whole review in haiku.
