LA Weekly's Description

Deep-fried catfish are almost as inescapable around here as personal trainers or Chevy Suburbans, but Shiro, a Japanese-French bistro unaccountably tucked into a Midwestern-looking South Pasadena streetscape, serves so much of this ponzu-steeped stuff that it might as well rename itself after the fish. Its version of the dish - imagine a whole catfish the size of the shark from Jaws, stuffed with ginger and fried to a crisp - is everything you could want from a bottom-feeder.

    Check out the remodeled dining room! I've had grilled duck confit salad the last 4 times here because I just can't resist.

    If you want a MEMORABLE meal, Shiro is the spot. I will NEVER forget the first time I had grilled king crab legs... Smoky, sweet, butteryness!
