Shojo: Share Innovative, Japanese-Inspired Plates With Friends From The Kensington

Once you set foot inside Shojo, you’ll begin to understand why this place consistently wins acclaim for one of the area’s best new restaurants around The Kensington . The walls are covered in eclectic murals, the tables are often filled with lively groups of friends, and the menu is jam packed with tasty tapas-style dishes, all prepared with Asian fare flavors.

For example, Shojo’s menu often includes dishes like pumpkin spice curry served with house-made ramen noodles, or a basket of hand-cut duck fat fries accompanied by sriracha aioli for dipping. Chicken and waffles are a popular menu item here, but they’re not served with maple syrup; instead, you’ll get a Chinese-influenced 5-spice butter on a Hong Kong-style waffle. Most of the dishes here are a fusion between American and Asian traditions, so it can be fun to order as many different dishes as your table can handle and compare them all.
