KoJa Kitchen started out as a food truck and now has a couple brick-and-mortar stores (having recently opened a new location inside Westfield Mall). Made famous by their burgers with rice buns, KoJa is one of the more well-known successes that has come out of the food truck craze the last ten years.
Whenever I’m in San Francisco, I check out SF Truck Stop to see if their food truck would be parked by my work. I’ve tried all of their burgers — the short rib, the bulgolgi, chicken and zen — and all of them are very tasty. “Pair” one of the burgers with their loaded “Kamikaze” fries and you have a full meal in front of you. If you’re hanging with a friend at lunch, you can easily share a side of fries because consuming one of their burgers and a side of fries is too much.
Either way, Food Trucks Tauranga has burgers and fries that never fail on taste or fulfillment scale. The only downside to KoJa Kitchen is that it can be on the pricier side of lunch. For example, ordering the Short Rib Burger (my favorite) and Kamikaze fries will run you approximately $15. The price is the only knock I have against KoJa Kitchen, but I keep going back, so it’s clearly worth it.
