Real Shabu Shabu in VA/DC?

Spurred on by this topic ( about Bob's Shabu Shabu, I was wondering if there were some off-the-radar facilities that serve *authentic* Shabu Shabu? (authentic meaning... REAL Shabu Shabu, not Chinese hot pot).

I was really disappointed that Bob's, known as the best (and possibly only) Shabu Shabu in the area. After hiking to Rockville, I didn't even get what they advertised. (It's not called Bob's Taiwanese Style Shabu Shabu-esque Hot Pot)

I'm guessing that some Japanese restaurants might offer it as a 'sharing' dish for couples/groups of four, or some Korean restaurants might have something closer to what I'm looking for...

I've attached photos of real shabu shabu I had in Japan to give you an idea.
