If you’re a health-food maniac and need a place to feel somewhat normal, or are looking for a unique downtown experience, I highly recommend this trendy Japanese restaurant. Just blocks from LA Live, Yojie is located in the heart of Downtown LA at the corner of Olympic and Grand. (If you can’t find metered parking, I recommend parking at the lot kitty corner from the restaurant, it’s usually about $5)

The menu consists of mouthwatering starters like edamame and miso soup among other items. For the main entrée, choices include a variety of dishes consisting of uncooked meat and veggies, both of utmost quality and freshness.

By the time our food arrived, the burners at the center of our table had boiled a saucy broth for our food to prepare in, accompanied by rice, an egg and an array of sauces and spices for personalized flavor. I ordered the Vegetarian Medley from the Sukiyaki menu which was absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy. It came with a plate filled to the rim with 2 types of noodles, 2 types of mushrooms, cabbage, leeks and carrots. (I found that dipping the veggies into the egg either before or after boiling in the broth and cooking the softer veggies like the cabbage for a shorter time and harder veggies like the carrots for a longer time, works the best:)

Bottom line, the food was great, not to mention the desserts and drinks. I guess you’ll have to swing by Yojie to see for yourself. Let me know what you think!

If this hasn’t tempted you, check out the photos I took:
