Seeking Best Shabu Shabu in DC/VA/MD Metro Area

Looking for a cool joint for my husband's 39th birthday dinner with friends. Thinking Shabu Shabu. Any recommendations? Every year we pick a different authentic joint (El Salvadorian, Vietnamese, Korean, Ethiopian, to name a few) and gorge on a delicious meal with friends.

Any and all suggestions most appreciated.

  1. Makoto does a classic shabu shabu. Pricey but a great special occasion place. Tachibana's is also very good and cheaper.
