One of my closest vegan friends left LA yesterday, likely not to return again for longer than a visit. In anticipation of that, we made sure to have a couple more vegan dining experiences together. The first was on October 10 at Shojin, a restaurant I hadn't been to since my first time.
While my dining partner ordered a sushi roll (dragon roll, I thought, but I can't find it on the menu), Seitan Pepper Steak, and Milky Almond Jelly with Nut Cookie for dessert, I wasn't quite as hungry and was craving comfort food. The Spicy Miso Ramen (from the menu: Flavorful blend of several miso, corn, vegetables, and garlic chips) with the addition of kale fit the bill perfectly. I'd love to recreate that at home.
Shojin provides computer printed cards and markers (crayons would have been better!) for those who appreciate a side of creativity with their meals. We each colored a card and hand-wrote a message for the Shojin owners to read later.
