Yojie Japanese Fondue
9400 W Sahara Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89117
Japanese Shabu Shabu is one of my favorite cuisines to eat because 1. it just tastes so clean and fresh! 2. it’s a DIY 3. the sauces! it’s all about the sauces. For those unfamiliar with shabu shabu, it is basically a type of meal where you cook your food in a pot of liquid of your choice, either water, sukiyaki or other savory soup bases. You shabu shabu (swish, swish in Japanese) your vegetables and protein to you liking, dip it in your favorite sauce and gobble up!
Yojie is a new joint in the west side of town, and I love how it’s new, clean, modern and it’s got all the right details. Chopstick wrappers are coordinated with their napkins graphically (neat!). Alkaline water used for cooking your food and/or drinking. It’s got a hip atmosphere with art on the walls. Customer service is excellent, and if you have the pleasure of meeting Anton, one of the owners, he is just the coolest guy. Their tea maker is empties directly from the bottom of the vessel, and you just have to see it. They have a cool little sesame grinder.
On to the food! Here at the restaurant you have different combination plates where you can choose between seafood, vegetables, chicken, pork and beef. For me, I went with Yojie’s Cut of angus beef in the geisha size (second size up from the smallest) with goma and ponzu sauce in which I totally double dip in both! For dessert, we had the white chocolate green tea fondue with cakes and fruits. The sweetness of the white chocolate was balanced out with the fresh organic fruits and yummy chunks of cake, homemade marshmallows and rice crispy treats.
