Our Story
Original Koja

KoJa Kitchen began as food truck in 2011, founded by Alan Tsai, Hiep Lien, and two other partners, who all have a passion for culinary innovation. The name "KoJa", a shorthand for Korean-Japanese, was born from the founders’ desires to reinvent the way that Korean and Japanese cuisine is traditionally prepared and to create a unique Asian fusion concept that is both fun and delicious. From the get-go, KoJa Kitchen took the San Francisco foodie scene by storm with their signature creation, a burger made with garlic-flavored rice buns and meats seasoned with KoJa Kitchen's unique sauce No. 96™. With growing popularity, KoJa Kitchen opened their first brick and mortar restaurant in 2014.

KoJa Kitchen continually strives to bring guests with the best customer service and dining experience. The entire KoJa Kitchen family would like to graciously thank you for your continued patronage!
