With a Japanese name that means  "strange beast" in English,  King Kaijoo  gave  an inkling what culinary adventure lay in wait for us last Monday

Asked what key words sum up King Kaijoo's food,  owner Ren Hernandez has this to say..

" Asian. Fusion. Fun. "

Back Story

With China Town Foods as its progenitor, one can say that King Kaijoo was born out of the  next generation's need to veer as far away as possible from the original template and explore other exciting foods to offer the new set of  clientele - the children and grandchildren of the loyal followers of Chinatown foods.

Moreover, from a year of research and planning, they  discovered that there is a market for adventurous foodies who long for cuisines other than the ubiquitous traditional found in the area.

The Food

Mimiga P248
crispy pig's earr, shichimi, vinegar dip

West Coast Tacos P288
salmon sashimi, miso, avocado, wasabi aioli, coriander, black sesame seeds

Watermelon Wave Salad P218
