KoJa Kitchen Creates Korean – Japanese Fusion Food in San Mateo

San Mateo has a new go-to spot to get your Korean-Japanese fusion fix. Newly opened KoJa Kitchen located at 150 S. B Street takes the best of both Korean and Japanese cuisines and reinvents them in a way that is fun and delicious to eat. KoJa took over the location of the old Pho Garden location and has created a new and exciting food concept that will cater to the vibrant downtown San Mateo area furthering our well-deserved status as “Best Small Town for Food”.

You can expect the dining experience at Koja to be: “Unique, trendy, fun, and casual, with bold flavors.”

What is a KoJa? KoJa is like a burger, but better. This special gourmet sandwich is infused with a unique combination of Korean and Japanese flavors. To step it up a notch, KoJa Kitchen substitutes the traditional wheat buns with freshly made crispy garlic rice buns.

What’s the perfect pairing for the San Mateo crowd? KoJa says:
Short rib Koja, Kamikaze fries, and Korean Buffalo wings with our beer selections (KoJa will have beer soon). Get a sneak peek look at the menu here.

Serving up creative fusion flavors all over the San Francisco Bay Area on a Food Truck since 2011, KoJa first test marketed their concept in San Diego. The Truck has been featured on the two Food Network Shows: Diners, Drive-ins & Dives and Eat Street. With strong fan support, they opened a restaurant in 2014. They continue to expand and serve up delicious sandwiches with your choice of protein (short rib, beef, chicken, or vegetarian) served between fried garlic rice buns.
