Welcome to Long Island's ONLY Japanese all-you-can-eat hot pot and table grill restaurants, JBBQ & Shabu Shabu! With our unique concept combining the art of Yakiniku grilling and Shabu Shabu, JBBQ is a healthy option for your next meal.
Yakiniku is a popular cooking method in Japan involving ultra-hot, gas-fired grills built right into the table. Guests choose from a wide array of fresh and marinated proteins and vegetables and cook their own food. Shabu Shabu, which translates to "swish swish", is the Japanese art of swish-cooking food in boiling soup broths resting atop induction plates built into the tables.
While Shabu Shabu and Yakiniku are similar to Korean Hot Pot and Korean BBQ, the Japanese styles of these culinary forms differ in meats offered, seasonings and marinades utilized, and grill styles. Unlike Korean BBQ grills which are electric and cook slower, lose their juices, and eliminate the succulent flavors, Japanese grilling is hot, fast, and allows the flavors to reach your palate.
One of the highlights of the JBBQ & Shabu Shabu experience is that everyone has the option of learning how to cook from our friendly and helpful team of servers, all expertly trained in teaching the mechanics of Yakiniku & Shabu Shabu. Our menu has cooking times written under each item, so guests can always check to see how long each item needs to cook.
