With locations in more than 20 Asian countries and three in the Los Angeles area, Mo-Mo-Paradise is next expanding to the San Diego area. The chain specializes in shabu-shabu, which literally means “swish-swish,” a style of Japanese hot pot in which thinly-sliced raw meat and other ingredients are swirled and simmered in boiling broth. The eatery featured cooktops embedded into its tables and different options of flavored soup, from a light vegetable stock to a sweet sukiyaki base and a rich pork bone broth.
Mo-Mo-Paradise features an all-you-can-eat menu, with a fixed price dinner that rings in under $30 and comes with a 90-minute time limit. Diners can order endless plates of meat — choices include two cuts of beef as well as Kurabota pork — and grab unlimited vegetables, sides, and drinks from a buffet setup.
A rep for the company tell Eater that the Mira Mesa location is scheduled to open this June.
