This would be 3 stars or maybe less back in the Bay Area, but for Stuttgart, it's the most authentic Chinese restaurant in town (or at least that has an authentic Chinese menu available for those who don't read Chinese).
And yes, I said Chinese. It's a Chinese restaurant that offers a few Korean dishes. It has a Japanese name. The first part of the menu is very inauthentic German-Chinese food. (Skip that part). So it's a little confusing.
Here's what Shabu-Shabu is passable at: Chinese food from a range of cuisines including a few dishes with my beloved Szechuan pepper (they call it "Chinese pepper").
They're better when you cook it yourself - via the amazingly tasty tabletop Korean BBQ and the Chinese-style hotpot. Both are all you can eat, and both are decent values if you come hungry.
If you have a serious Chinese craving in Stuttgart, the current options are make it yourself, or go to Shabu Shabu.
Had the Bi Bim Pap. Which is my usual at Korean restaurants. Disappointing. Not worth going back for.
This place is clean convenient and efficient. Walked in off the train and the beer was cold, it's extremely clean, classy and food was tasty. Would definitely come here again. Outside seating is a bonus since it affords for people watching.
