Davis Tako will be bigger, better than Sac’s

The Davis Tako Korean BBQ is scheduled to open Feb. 1, and will be “a better version” of the Sacramento eatery, a spokesman said.

On Thursday, I talked with a Tako owner, Yoon Cho, and marketing rep Andy Duong. The Korean/Mexican fusion restaurant replaces El Mariachi, which closed last month at the corner of Fourth and G streets in downtown Davis. In Midtown Sacramento, Tako serves Korean/Mexican fusion “quick bites,” out of a retro gas station at 3030 T St.

“Sacramento is our baby,” Duong said. “But this is what we’ve always wanted.” The larger Davis space will accommodate an expanded menu, beer and wine list, live music and late-night hours.

Its Sacramento menu features tacos, burritos, quesadillas, sliders, rice bowls, salad bowls and nachos. Customers pick the meat and/or vegetable filling, including steak, short ribs, pork, chicken, tofu, stir-fried veggies and noodles. Sides include kimchi, and chips and salsa.

With their eye on East Coast food trends and the college student demographic, Duong said the Davis store may add things like bao (chicken-stuffed dim sum buns), new Asian sliders, and carne asada or kimchi-topped fries.

Sweet and Shavery co-owner Brian Nuss says he hopes to have his treat store open later this month, or by early February. He promised to provide an update once everything was ready. The store, at 210 E St., will serve Italian ice, frozen custard and crepes.

————

Nearby, Zindagi Indian Bistro, at 213 E St., Suite C, appears to have closed for good. Its windows are covered in paper and its website is down.

————

And Nobu Hiro, aka Sushi Nobu, a Japanese food restaurant at 2939 Spafford St., Suite 105, remains closed. A sign noting that the closure was temporary has been removed. A new board says to call 530-753-2200, but that number is no longer in service.

————

As I reported last week, Carl’s Jr. is still scheduled to open on Friday, Jan. 17, at 1701 Cowell Blvd. The new restaurant is in the former Wendy’s location.

————

Dickeys Barbecue Pit, at 640 W. C0vell Blvd., Suite D, in Anderson Plaza, got its county health permit on Thursday. As soon as it gets a city permit, owner James Domsic will begin construction, he said. It will feature Texas-style barbecue food, and could open in February or March.

————

The Bear Factory Tea Lounge, on Lake Boulevard in Westlake Plaza, may not open until September. Owner Paul Cerna said he’s still trying to raise money. When it does open, he plans to offer boba (tapioca) and other teas, coffee, snacks and desserts.
