PBS is one of my favorite local stations, and it has been since I was a kid. Last fall, I had the incredible opportunity to participate in the production of live Arizona broadcasting. I applied and was selected to appear on an episode of Check Please, Arizona! starring local restauranteur and host Mark Tarbell. My recommendation for review was Shabu Fondue in North Central Phoenix,
Chef Johnny Chu has been opening and running thrilling Asian-style restaurants around the Valley for decades. It was quite pleasing to have the opportunity to share with Valley diners, families and couples the fun and unique shabu shabu experience that Chef Chu has created at Shabu Fondue and its sister restaurant, Red Thai. I also enjoyed the company of my fun co-guests, retired Valley realtor Cheryl Burleson, and local schoolteacher Ordaz, who selected Alessia’s Ristorante Italiano in Mesa and Rehab Burger Therapy in Scottsdale.
