Dinner "Specials" in Los Angeles

Kagaya in little tokyo is a shabu shabu restaurant but each meal offers three starter courses PRIOR to the shabu shabu AND dessert! The dishes are all amazingly composed and beautiful and delicious. $43 or so for the USDA prime option! for a total of FIVE courses (dessert included)!

shabu shabu at home

Hi all!
Can someone recommend a good butcher or supermarket where I can get pre-sliced quality meat for making shabu shabu at home? I know shabu shabu house sells it in the restaurant but I wanted a larger quantity and hopefully a cheaper price tag. Looking for places in Koreatown, Little Tokyo, EchoPark/Silverlake/los Feliz areas. Thank you!
