PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — A new Japanese fondue restaurant, Simply Shabu, has opened in the heart of Chinatown, at 1023 Cherry Street.

“Shabu comes from the Japanese term swish-swish,” says owner Dennis Tuan (top photo).  “The idea is like it’s an Asian hot-pot or fondue style, where you’re cooking all the raw veggies and meats in a flavored broth, which then you use for various dipping sauces that we offer.”

Magpie, the artisan pie boutique at 1622 South Street, is getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit with a “Sweetie Pie Couples Pie-Making Class” on Thursday, February 13th.

“We thought it would be so super fun to do a couples’ class, because couples do come to our regular pie classes and they have so much fun together,” says owner Holly Ricciardi (below). ” So we thought, well, why not make it a couples-only?”

And Federal Donuts, famous for its fried chicken and gourmet donuts, opens two new shops over the next two months.  Felicia D’Ambrosio, a partner (below), notes that one of the new locations will even have a parking lot.

“We have two shops in the works,” she tells What’s Cooking.  “The first one, at 3428 Sansom Street in University City, is going to open this month.”
