That's not a typo. Even before branching out to other parts of Northern California, Sacramento's pioneering gourmet food truck is opening a bruck and mortar location in the United Arab Emirates near the Dubai Mall, Krush Burger announced on its Web site today.
I am proud to announce our newest Krush Burger location in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Krush Burger, along with a new operating partner in Dubai will open the first international Krush Burger location...
We travel to Dubai next week as construction commences on the first international Krush Burger just outside of Dubai Mall, the world’s largest mall by sq feet and the world’s tallest tower Burj Khalifa.
We are extremely excited about our new partnership in Dubai, not only is Dubai an international business center but also an international tourist destination and we feel that Krush Burger will be an over-whelming success there. The long term goal of our operating partner in Dubai is to open a second location there as well as one in Abu Dhabi, the capitol city of United Arab Emirates, where it goes beyond there is an exciting prospect.
We are soo fortunate, through the loyal efforts of our fans here in Sacramento, we re able to take this amazing step in such a short period of time.
We continue to focus on opening additional locations in the Sacramento and Bay Area markets, stay tuned as more announcements are coming soon!

Catching up with James Beard award winner Hank Shaw - I just got off the phone with Hank Shaw, who won a James Beard award Friday night in New York for best blog. Shaw is traveling with significant other Holly Heyser, journalist in residence at California State University, Sacramento (and the one responsible for many of the photos on the blog). I asked Shaw, whose blog is called "Hunter Angler Gardener Cook," about the awards ceremony and what it felt like the moment he heard his name called. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.

Track 7 brewery still feels like a discovery - If you consider yourself a beer aficionado and you don't know about Track 7, you're late to the party. I've dropped in several times in recent months and I can't think of a beer experience I have enjoyed more than this one. It's easy, low-key, affordable and inspiring.

First Impressions: Fortune Garden in El Dorado Hills serves home-style Chinese - Plates of steaming food exited the kitchen nonstop during our visit (is there an army of cooks back there?), expertly delivered by a friendly staff in constant motion. Bring an appetite and plan on using the soy and pepper sauces on the table. Try it if you're in the neighborhood and want big plates of home-style food that won't break the budget. Forget it if you're looking for sophisticated, high-end Chinese cuisine. Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.
