Respond to Review of Shojin
by Chia

Review: I had learned about this restaurant on HappyCow when it had first opened (Dec 2007?) and have eaten here many times since. Was here again in April 2013, and here's my Shojin review update. It seems that Shojin is constantly evolving, changing its menus, and adding new things. The current menu features a range of contemporary vegan Japanese cuisine: veggie sushi rolls, salads, soups and ramen noodle, and a few hot plates with seitan. Also on the menu are a range of beverages. The desserts always change, so you have to ask about it. The space is rather small and intimate with very dim lights. The food is always well-prepared and presented. I like the different ramen noodle options as well the assorted vegetable sushi rolls. For the rolls, the sauce can get too salty, so I ask them to put the sauce on the side instead of a pour over. Dessert-wise, I like their baked cakes. The raw cakes tend to be too dense (made with nuts and coconut butter). The service is very good. Can get pricey, though. To me Shojin feels more like a special occasion outing, or a date night place, or if you have lots of money and enjoy spending it on yummy food, then definitely enjoy it here.
