A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

shojoI was at a meeting by South Station and needed a bite to eat. I had been hearing good things about Shojo in Chinatown and decided to give it a spin. Shojo’s food is a modern take on Japanese food with tapas style dishes meant for sharing.

shojoWe sat at a hightop by the window. I love the mural on the back wall painted by Alec Strickland. The restaurant has a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

shojoShojo has a nice selection of vegetarian options if that is your speed. We started with the mushroom spring rolls with Chinese red vinaigrette ($6). The food came out very quickly after we ordered – it was impressive.

shojoThe duck taco ($10) Duck Confit, House Moo Shu Shell, Mint Chutney and Purple Kimchi Slaw. The dish was flavorful – the presentation was not what we were expecting, but it was delicious.

shojoThe chicken and waffle ($13) Szechuan Peppercorn Maple Syrup, Hong Kong Egg Style Waffle, 5 Spice Butter and Fried Chicken Drumstick. The waffle was beautiful, the syrup had a nice hint of sweetness and the chicken was crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Love the presentation of this dish!

shojoThe kimchi fried rice ($9) was tasty and came with a fried egg on top. While it wasn’t super spicy, there was definitely a slow burn that made your lips tingle a bit.
