I love trying new restaurants. While there are plenty of vegetarian restaurants in the Los Angeles area, other than Madeleine Bistro, there aren't many that offer fine dining.
Shojin was a new adventure for a friend and I this evening in Little Tokyo. The restaurant offers vegan, macrobiotic, organic Japanese cuisine. We ordered the special menu, a five course menu of pre-selected items. It came with ponzu seitan (pictured below), a tempura avocado hand roll with soy paper, sea vegetable salad, spaghetti with vegetables, and a fruit tart for dessert.
The food was absolutely delicious and healthy.
