About Us

Chef Chizuru was born in Tokyo Japan. She started cultivating an interest in cooking from a young age. At five, she received a cookbook for kids and started her studies of Japanese cuisine by cooking for her family using those recipes.

She expanded her repertoire by immigrating to the United States and attending Le Cordon Bleu. Before attending school, she worked at Shojin as a cook. At Shojin, she got hands on experience with Japanese vegan dishes. There she learned how to make vegetarian and vegan dishes that were still 100% Japanese.

After Shojin, Chizuru went on to an internship at Nobu Matsuhisa’s restaurant as a pastry chef. After her internship, she continued to travel, experiencing different dishes and cuisines. In between, she had plenty of side catering projects, keeping her sharp for the professional kitchen life. All of her experiences have culminated into the making of Okamoto Kitchen.

Chef Chizuru has managed to deftly bring together her experiences with both traditional and vegetarian Japanese food to bring a very unique Japanese experience. With her years of experience catering, you are guaranteed a professional and quality experience with hard to find Japanese items.

Our Goals

As excited as we are that Japanese food is becoming such a hit in the states, we’d like to give people the opportunity to try lesser known dishes. We want America to get even more of a glimpse into the vast array of dishes that Japan has to offer!

We like to focus on the comfort foods, ones that you will enjoy again and again without getting tired of it. If anything, it will leave you craving more. Our menu changes frequently as we work on bringing more and more popular Japanese dishes to the states.

Our Dishes

Our Nom Bomb Sandwich is based on a dish that is well known in Japan, nanban, yet not so well known here. It’s a crispy and juicy fried chicken with tartar sauce. We serve ours, sandwich style, with a sweet and sour teriyaki glaze.

Curry is a common item in a Japanese restaurant, but our style of curry is difficult to find outside of Japan. Our oofu curry is based on classic curry back when it was first introduced to Japan by the British Navy. It contains a very rich flavor with a veal stock base, and a touch of flour for a flavor you can’t find in modern day curry.

Mochi in America is usually known in its ice cream form or as a sweet mochigashi, savory mochi dishes are rarely seen here. Cheese mochi has a long tradition in Japan that we wanted to introduce to America with our cheese mochi sticks.
