South Pasadena, CA 91030
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.
Tips from foursquare
Have been told by a very reliable source that the Catfish dish is mouth watering amazing!
One of the best restaurants in LA...love the salmon tacos and catfish...you haven't had french food like this...check out Zagat review!

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!
