Review: Koko Kitchen is located in exactly the spot you wouldn't expect a restaurant would be located. It's surrounded by houses and some apartment complexes. In fact, the place looks like an oddly misshaped house.
The first thing I noticed upon entering Koko was the clientele; they were mostly Asians. This gave me confidence, and I was not disappointed.
Since it was lunch, I tried a rice bowl with fried shrimp and veggies.
Simply put: it was good. The shrimp was freshly prepared and cooked well (i.e., it wasn't at all tough or dry). The veggies were plentiful and not overcooked, which meant they had a lot of flavor. The rice was white and sticky: exactly what you want in a dish like this.
Koko offers much more than simple lunch fare, and I can't wait to go back to sample more.
Rating: 7/10 (5/10 is average).
