Respond to Review of Shojin
Review: After reading some reviews, I decided to take the long journey from Tustin to Downtown LA, Little Tokyo just to try this restaurant. My husband and I took the Metrolink to Union Sation and then took the shuttle to Little Tokyo. It was not hard to find this restaurant. The decor inside is really really nice and professional. I love it! Our lunch started with a bowl of cauliflower soup (soup of the day) that was so delicious. I had the Crispy Seitan Curry with brown rice and salad. The salad dressing was flavorful. The curry sauce is not fatty at all and contains all vegetables and not coconut milk. It was so delicious. The seitan was fried but not oily. Husband had the seitan with miso sauce and it was very good too. For desserts, I had the Green Tea Moss cake which was just ok for me. It was not that sweet. Husband had the Chocolate Walnut cake which was totally decadent and satisfying. He said that it was the best vegan chocolate dessert he had for a while. We recommend this Chocolate dessert. Next time, we'll try the new dessert items they have. Next time, we'll come back for dinner. The service was excellent. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. We were told that they will validate the parking. Cool! I just wish that this restaurant is not so far away from home. We would have visited it more often.
