Japanese Macrobiotic Vegan Eatery Expanding in LA

Locals in Culver City will soon be able to eat healthy, cruelty-free Japanese fare.

Shojin, an organic and natural Japanese restaurant offering vegan and macrobiotic food in downtown Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo neighborhood, will soon open its second location in Culver City, near the Mar Vista border. Shojin of Culver City will offer high-quality, chemical-, meat-, and gluten-free fare that LA veg foodies have grown to love from its flagship. Though the new location's menu has yet to be announced, the original features Pumpkin Croquettes, Stuffed Shitake Mushrooms, and an assortment of vegan sushi. The much-anticipated March eighth opening prompted Shojin to require reservations for the first three days of the grand opening.
