Sacramento's mobile food scene may be getting a little crowded, but there's always room for a truck which serves something different. In the case of OMG buger, it's gourmet burgers with an Asian twist, reports Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
The truck’s signature burger – the OMG burger – is ground-up bacon blended into a beef patty topped with Cool Ranch Doritos and homemade ranch dressing.
“All of the burgers are original and creative,” Jones said, adding that the Bahng-Gu Burger is a nod to his half-Korean heritage, a cheeseburger topped with Korean bulgogi and fresh kimchi.
His favorite burger, he said, is the Dirty Sanchez, which features carne asada topped with homemade salsa and potato chips.
Burgers will be reasonably priced between $5 and $8.50, and the truck will debut at Saturday's SactoMoFo 5.

Update: They tweeted on Tuesday that they won't be ready for SactoMofo this weekend.
Dining review: Sons & Daughters in S.F. worthy of its Michelin star - It wasn't so long ago that Duncan Holmes would ride his bike home from Bella Vista High School, stopping along the way to wash dishes at his mom's catering business, before immersing himself in his studies. The catering business grew up to become Karen's Bakery Cafe, a beloved eatery in Folsom, and the baker's son grew up to be, at just 26, a Michelin-starred chef in San Francisco.

Check it Out: Zinfandel Grille's Seafoody Appetizers - I visited Zinfandel Grille recently on a scorching Sacramento afternoon, so knocked out from the heat that I wasn’t sure I could eat anything. But two of the kitchen’s seafood appetizers soon revived me. The flavorful, pretty Thai-grilled prawn wraps had a refreshing Asian green apple slaw, enlivened with wasabi vinaigrette, which cradled the warm crustaceans; and the calamari – served up with a snappy cocktail sauce and lemony aioli – was irresistibly light and non-greasy.

Asian Café: Remember to hydrate - Whether you’re the type to obsessively sift through the wares at the Del Paso Heights-area Thrift Town, shop for discount porn at the Goldie’s Outlet or even work at this very paper that you’re reading, it’s likely you’ll never stumble across Asian Café. The restaurant is located on a largely residential street in a North Sacramento business complex that houses a supermarket—one that looks more like a place to take shelter from post-apocalyptic zombies than a spot to pick up a gallon of milk. Consider it a destination, then: Asian Café serves both Thai and Lao food, but forget about the Thai dishes, and go for the Lao specialties. Becky Grunewald in Sac News & Review.
