Review: I finally made it down to Shojin last month. Gotta tell you, it was worth the wait! My husband and I went to celebrate our second anniversary and were treated like royalty. From the glass of tea when we arrived; to the basket for my purse; to the beautiful, well-stocked bathrooms; this place is hands-down the classiest vegan restaurant in Los Angeles. And the FOOD! We started with the Shojin Best Sampler Plate. My favorite was the Pumpkin Croquette and my hubby was in love with the Spicy Rock Shiitake Tempura. Being very hungry we next ordered the Kale Carnival roll, the Yuzu Portobello roll and the Asparagus Edamame roll. I thought the kale paste in the the Kale Carnival roll was ingenious and was complimented perfectly by the mango sauce that came with it. My husband was disappointed with how peppery the Yuzo Portobello roll was, but the menu did say it had a pepper sauce, so there you go. We both really enjoyed the fun textures and fresh flavors in the Asparagus Edamame roll. We had decided not to get dessert, but were treated to a complimentary bowl of fresh fruit with raspberry sauce, complete with a candle, cups of fragrant rose tea, a photo of the two of us AND a CD to take home to commemorate our special night. And our bill came out to less than $50! We were blown away! Oh, and I should mention that they validate parking. We were so overjoyed with our experience that we came back less than three weeks later and had another romantic and delicious dinner. Try the Pirates of the Crunchy roll!
