Oseyo is one of the most crowded places in Pasadena - come on a weekend, and expect to wait at least an hour for a table. But it’s worth the wait, because this isn’t just one of the best places for a rowdy dinner in this part of LA, it’s also a great place for high quality shabu shabu. Get the spicy miso broth, and pick your favorite meat (we like the choice prime rib and the seafood trio, with fresh scallops, salmon, and shrimp), to go along with your $13 pitcher of Kirin.
