BLR by Shojo, Boston, MA

BLR by Shojo Restaurant Review

: Now called BLR by Shojo, this basement-level restaurant is still frequented by regulars for its seafood. Try the honey-walnut shrimp with pineapple and walnuts and the Best Little Trout in chili oil, ginger and scallions. The small kitchen churns out not-so-common finds like Lionhead pork meatballs with pickled chilies, ginger and water chestnuts in a sticky glaze with a side of rice, and coconut curry with braised beef. Szechuan ground-pork bolognese with handmade ribbon noodles and mushrooms can be made vegetarian. Unlike most Chinatown eateries, BLR by Shojo closes at 10:30 p.m.
