Gerald "LA Akira" Abraham is one of the strongest Street Fighter II players in the States, a fierce Virtua Fighter competitor and now the proud co-owner of one of Los Angeles' most successful new food trucks.

Gerald and his wife, Chizuru, have teamed up to bring an authentic taste of Japan to Southern California. Introducing Okamoto Kitchen, a roaming eatery that offers lesser-known Japanese dishes.

With dishes such as the Nom Bom Sandwich, cheese mochi and Okamoto Curry, Okamoto Kitchen was able to win the LA Weekly reader’s choice for best food truck of 2016.

While Gerald deals with customers up front, Chizuru uses her learnings from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts to create top tier foods for customers all over LA. The culinary duo already has a full schedule booked for the rest of the year, and will be at SCR tonight from 5-10 p.m.
Head over to the Okamoto Kitchen home page for the full menu, and check out awesome write ups like the one on Vice for more details.
