This shabu-shabu and bubble tea specialist also offers an assortment of fried snacks--including squid balls and fried chicken--which are the real reason to go. Order squid balls or fried black rice cake. After each piece is fried, it's thoroughly dredged in hot chile powder, rendering it brick-orange. The snacks arrive in little wax paper bags, with a skewer to spear up bites. The dense squid balls are mildly briny, craggy on the outside, steamy and bouncy on the inside. But we liked the black rice cake best, each one a neatly compressed, crisp-edged rectangle of nutty black rice.
