TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY!

Today I Made:
JAPANESE MISO EGGPLANT, SESAME SPINACH, BROWN RICE and MISO SOUP for DINNER.
For DESSERT, I bought PEANUT BUTTER MOCHI from FUGETSU-DO, a Japanese confectionary shop in Little Tokyo.

Today, I went to SHOJIN for LUNCH.

It's a brand new VEGAN restaurant that opened 2 days ago in Little Tokyo, Downtown LA.
I'm excited because I LOVED it AND it's SO CLOSE to home!  
(About a 15 minute drive compared to at least a 45 minute drive to other vegan restaurants 
that I've been to.)
I first heard about it from foodeater.
Since becoming vegan about one year ago,
I've been to the following vegan restaurants:

Awesome! I'm so glad you got to try Shojin... and I'm even more excited that they're now open!

This place was so delicious.
The desserts need some revamping.
But other than that, my husband I plan on being regular customers.

I'm so happy that you were able to try Shojin. We had such an incredible experience there and I want them to get a lot of business! BTW, I completely agree with your thoughts on their desserts. If you read my post on our visit there, you'll see that was something I mentioned, too.
