Spring Shabu-Shabu Is Opening in Allston

An Asian hot pot restaurant located in a borough of New York City is expanding to Boston.

According to a post within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Spring Shabu-Shabu is planning to open in Allston, taking over the space on Western Avenue where Maki Maki had been until closing last spring. A check on the website for the upcoming eatery indicates that Spring Shabu-Shabu currently has a location in the Flushing section of Queens, with that restaurant offering "traditional and not so traditional shabu-shabu side dishes from a buffet setting."

The website for the dining spot mentions that the new location of Spring plans to open sometime in February.

The address for this new restaurant in Allston is: Spring Shabu-Shabu, 370 Western Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for the original location in Flushing can be found at

Thanks to Steven Leibowitz of Hub Food Trucks for bringing this to our attention.

[May 26 update: It appears that Spring Shabu-Shabu could be one step closer to opening by early next month, as a source tells us that Cafe 1221 in Dorchester is petitioning to transfer its license to the place with a hearing on this being held June 7 and a decision possibly coming the following day.]

[June 10 update: Universal Hub mentions that Spring Shabu-Shabu could be opening by the end of the month if all goes as planned (and pending the city's decision on the license transfer tomorrow).]

[August 1 update: A poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page mentions that Spring Shabu-Shabu is now open in Allston.]
