MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In LA’s competitive Japanese food scene, Shojin stands tall thanks to a menu that’s delicious, complex and 100% vegan—not to mention further options for diners sensitive to garlic, onions and gluten. Though it’s set on the third floor of the busy Little Tokyo Market Place, it has an appealingly sleek vibe, carefully decorated with fresh flowers and fine linens.

That care extends to the menu, which will make even omnivores sit up and take notice. Stuffed shiitake mushrooms are perfectly calibrated with miso, tamari and just a hint of smoke; while the soy-paper sushi roll encases a surprisingly hearty and satisfying mix of cucumber, shiso and seaweed. At the end, their pumpkin “cheesecake” is so blissfully creamy that it’s hard to believe there is no dairy.
