the first innovative restuarant in chinatown, shojo, has been open for one year now. they repainted the mural and brought some brand new dishes to the menu.
smoky summer- fidencio mezcal, watermelon, agave, lime.
i am a fan of mezcal and loved this drink. i was impressed with their drinks.
grilled peking duck roll
duck fat hang-cut fries – sriracha aioli
tuna tartare – wonton chips, smoked ponzu, edamame mousse
bbq pork ribs – very good
lobster asparagus dumplings – carrort ginger puree
suckling pig bao – smoked bbq sauce, kimchi, jalepeno
warm glass noodle salad – toasted peanuts, chicken, vegetables
charcuterie board – head cheese rillette, pig trotter terrine, porchetta, asian pear, kimchi, fig mostrada, dried longan compote
almond shirmp balls – vanilla rhubarb gel
salt & pepper calamari – gremolata, roasted pepper aioli
duck confit dumplings – celery root puree
chinese long bean – cherry tomato, parmesan, balsamic thai basil dressing
grilled hanger steak – truffle kimchi sauce, shallots
pork dumplings – chinese red vinaigrette
kimchi fried rice – quail egg
i was impressed with the drinks and how knowledgeable our waitress was. you dont find this in an average chinese restaurant. the food was tasty and innovative, however, the overall dining experience was terrible. there were two parties going on in shojo: one surprise birthday party and one bachelorette party. they were all super drunk and INCREDIBLY LOUD! i had to yell to my friends at the top of my lungs when we were talking and they could even barely hear me. the loud noise gave me a major headache and i didnt want to stay at shojo any second longer. i dont think i will return unless i am with my own drunk party.
