Kobe An Shabu Shabu

Some people consider cooking a chore, but if the activity at Kobe An Shabu Shabu, a niche Japanese restaurant that opened in Highland in summer 2014, is any indication, people are not only willing to cook, they'll pay good money to do so â?? provided they're in a swanky space drinking plum wine with friends. Shabu shabu, which translates to "swish, swish," brings platters of vegetables, meat and noodles to your table, along with pots of broth in which to cook all those ingredients. The result is supposed to be a glorious mess of a meal that's guaranteed to bring out your inner kid â?? but here itâ??s sometimes just a mess.
