Why Komodo?

komododragon
The Komodo Dragons in Indonesia are the largest lizard species in the world. They are rare endangered species that are highly lethal. However, they have a weak sense of hearing and sight, so they go about the world tasting their surroundings using their powerful sense of taste. Our business started with the Komodo truck, one of the largest trucks roaming around in LA; hailed by Roaming Hunger as one of the top trucks in California.

We believe in being adventurous with our flavors; if it takes combining unique and unlikely ingredients together to achieve the ideal composition- we will. Chef Erwin Tjahyadi’s classical French training, combined with his passion for Mexican food and his Southeast Asian heritage- help create a unique perspective of cooking parallel to Los Angeles’ melting pot of culinary heritages.

Komodo stands for Dangerously Good Food- get your taste buds ready for a flavor adventure. Book us today for your upcoming catering, private events, weddings and parties.
