Shojin has two locations in my favorite parts of Los Angeles, Culver City and Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles. Tsuguhiro Morishima is Japanese and the owner of the vegan, gluten-free, macrobiotic restaurant. The menu is most well known for their inventive sushi rolls, tempura, spicy tuna on crispy rice, stuffed shiitake mushrooms, and more. Crystal orders their spicy baked scallop roll and Shojin dynamite roll, which I would have to counter with the pirates of the crunchy roll mainly because I’m a sucker for crispy crunchy tempura flakes. While we’re on the topic of tempura, I would also order the banana and chocolate mousse cake to finish off the meal.
