Shojo is the only restaurant in Chinatown that features a graffiti mural of a monkeys that appear to be taking over Logan Airport. That in and of itself is not a reason to go here, but when you add in the tiki drinks, duck fat fries, and burger made with kimchi on a bao bun, you get a place that’s one of the more fun places for a group dinner in the neighborhood. It’s a small place, so you’re group won’t be able to be that big, but it’s the type of restaurant that feels like a bar where you might make friends with the next table, anyway.
