My dinner with Will Travel For Vegan Food at Shojin

Okay, I have to admit that its been a while since I've been to the best sushi spot in Los Angeles...don't pretend you don't know I'm talking about Shojin. :-) Last Sunday, I was fortunate enough to munch on some Shojin cuisine with Kristin, and chat about her travels. For those that don't know, Kristin, from  Will Travel For Vegan Food has been driving cross country, making pit stops at every vegan food place in sight. I first heard about Kristin's journey last year when I saw her kick starter campaign promoting her trip and I've been following her travels ever since. With her pimped out Chevy van, named Gerty, Kristin has been sharing on her blog, the most incredible vegan eats from New York to Los Angeles...and a few surprise stops in Hawaii, Canada, and Europe. It was such a pleasure getting to meet her and share such a yummy dinner. I must admit I was a little intimidated to eat with someone who's had just about every vegan dish out there. I felt like I was eating with a very fancy vegan food critic. But, Kristin was a very nice and down to earth cool chick, who just so happens to travel and eat tons of vegan food for a living. It was nice to share in a little bit of a happy food dance when we were served our delicious Shojin rolls, because let's face it, it's no fun dancing alone. ;-) Check out Kristin's website for all the cool spots she's been to and check out the pics below to see the always delicious Shojin grub we ate. I have found a new favorite roll there that I can't stop thinking about! Must return soon. :-)
Spicy Shiso tempura

Seitan strips

Dynamite roll. My fave!

Purple Treasure roll. 

Pirates of the Crunchy roll. My new fave! 

I ordered the Spicy Miso Ramen for my entree. Also my fave!

Kristin ordered the Seitan Steak with garlic herb butter, brown rice, and veggies. 

Me with Kristin. I was sporting my Vegan, What? shirt if you can't tell. :-)
