Photos: Dipping Into Kobe An Shabu Shabu
Kobe An Shabu Shabu opened in July after an extensive overhaul to the location occupied decades ago by neighborhood favorite Little Pepina's. Kobe An's menu features only two entrees: shabu shabu, which the owners call a Japanese version of fondue, and sukiyaki, a one-pot meal of vegetables, beef and noodles served with a raw egg.

Our photographer captured the minimalist beauty of the restaurant on a recent afternoon just before dinner service.
Kobe An Shabu Shabu offers three tiers of thin-sliced ribeye steak for the shabu shabu and sukiyaki: generic USDA Choice, all-natural beef from Aspen Ridge, and American Kobe from Snake River Farms. The full bar features Japanese whiskey, hot or cold sake, and a range of local and Japanese beers.
Kobe An Shabu Shabu is open from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, and from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
