Shojin is located in the Little Tokyo Shopping Mall, which is an experience in and of itself, but the all-vegan restaurant, which has the world's best vegan sushi, has the most attentive service. They take good care of you here. They'll place the napkin on your lap, or fold it up for you if you go to their bathroom (which is stocked with mouthwash, floss, shoeshine, etc), and show you the basket under your seat to leave your things. The sushi is so great, despite many trips to Shojin, neither of us had had the ramen. We were missing out.
We tried two of the four bowls of ramen on the menu: Ramen of the Century (pictured above) and the Spicy Black Ramen (pictured below). The Ramen of the Century is Shojin's creamiest ramen, made from tahini. It features homemade soy-meat, fancy mushrooms, grilled eggplant, and more. The flavorful vegan egg was a fun $3 add-on.
The Spicy Black Ramen has a spicy green chili and tamari broth that was, very, very flavorful. With black sesame sauce, tempeh, kale, and other veggies, there was a lot going on in this bowl of ramen.
