Shabu restaurants serving real Kobe beef?
Are there any restaurants in the area serving shabu shabu with real Kobe beef (not the American Kobe)? I've been to Shabu House - it was alright (especially for the price, with the all-you-can-eat-and-drink), but I crave higher quality meat. I did a search but only found three threads (none of which were really relevant).

Perhaps Ozumo will get go closer to your ideal shabu-shabu. It's not Kobe but it's $42.
Shacho's Shabu-Shabu washu rib-eye with a daikon radish ponzu dipping sauce, swished through a simmering pot of aka miso-dashi broth
Just wondering if that boiling broth doesn't somehow diminish the effect of all that beautiful fat and whether a restaurant would want to start a Kobe just for you*.
