Daily Dining News: Krush Burger to Add Taco Truck


Krush Burger, the former Mini Burger Truck, has been on a tear recently. They're about to open a brick and mortar location, and now they're adding a second food truck, reports Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.

“It’s Crave: Modern American Tacos,” Vculek said Wednesday. “We’re going to have a couple of fish options, a shrimp option, a really good pulled pork taco, chicken and possibly a steak taco.”

The truck is in the final stages of construction, but it is scheduled to be at the Sept. 29 SactoMoFo Trucktoberfest in West Sacramento.

Those familiar with the menu of Krush burger can expect to see some of their favorite burgers transformed into tacos.

One of those is the Ninja Burger – marinated and grilled short ribs, Asian slaw, radish sprouts, sesame ginger vinaigrette, Sriracha aioli and fried scallions. Vculek said it will be the basis for a taco on Crave.
