About Us

My name is Renny Braga.  I was born in Iwakuni, Japan, to a Portuguese father and Chinese mother, and grew up on the southernmost Japanese island of Okinawa.  I now live in Tampa, Florida and I want to introduce people to the food that I grew up with on Okinawa.

As a child, I remember being in the kitchen helping my grandmother prepare different dishes for dinner. I would always watch intently and ask questions about her recipes. Whenever I cook those dishes now, I try to reproduce the same wonderful flavors that my grandmother created.  I love to cook, and even more I love to see people enjoy my food.

I’ve always had a dream of opening a restaurant and sharing all the dishes that I love to cook.  A few years ago, my wife read an article about how food trucks were growing in popularity. We thought that would be a great venue for us to carry out our dream.  We’ve been thinking about it ever since and now that dream is becoming a reality.  We officially launched in May 2012 and have been Oki Doki ever since!

Renny’s Oki Doki serves hiyashi chuka soba, a cold noodle dish served with a choice of vegetables and chicken or other protein; harumaki, a crispy spring roll with assorted vegetables and pork; and gyoza, a pork/vegetable dumpling lightly fried and steamed. The house specialty will be soki soba, Okinawan noodles in hot broth topped with pork spareribs.
