Testimonials

Pal S-
“We had Okamoto Kitchen food truck cater our late night food at our wedding day. It was the best food truck ever! Guests were raving about the food and some even said they heard about the food truck and been wanting to try it! Gerald from Okamoto is amazing, very personable, and has the best customer service. Would highly recommend Okamoto Kitchen for any of your future events. You will not regret it!”

“I’ve eaten both at the Okamoto Kitchen truck (several times) and had their catering at a wedding and I absolutely love their food! They make my favorite curry in LA, but if you’re on the go the Nom Bomb sandwich is definitely the easiest thing to grab and run and it’s delicious, too. The mochi cheese sticks seemed like a weird idea to me at first but they’re so good and really addictive. If you get a chance to check out this truck I really recommend it!”

Anna Z-
“Love love love their food! I’ve had the katsu curry sandwich and my boyfriend loves the nom bomb. Mochi sticks are great, the JFC is great though I miss the monster ball croquettes because they were amazing!! The workers are cool and always answer my questions on FB. Love their seasonal desserts, and the overall franchise, they have a very cute mascot and whoever does the artwork is amazing! Wishing I wasn’t stuck in Vegas because every first Thursday of the month I’m wishing I was back in California to eat at their truck. Only complaint is please keep an eye out that your customers are getting the right food because these teens hung out by the window and my order was up but they immediately grabbed it and complained it wasn’t the right food (no duh ya dummy kids) so I had to wait longer. I was more annoyed by the kids and didn’t mind after because I got fresh steaming hot mochi sticks and the guy got off the truck to hand it to me personally and that was so nice. Looking forward to next years foodie festival hoping I can eat from this truck again!”

“I’ve been to Okamoto Kitchen several times, and it’s always a treat every time I go. It’s a food truck with a lot of heart: the dishes are delicious, the owners and employees are kind and hospitable, and even the design of the truck is awesome (it’s covered in anime). Some of my favorite dishes are the Gyu Don bowl, Okonomi Fries, Katsu Curry Sandwich, and JFC. Highly recommend!”

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.
