Tako Korean BBQ opened Friday in Davis, at 400 G St. featuring “a delicious and unique fusion of Korean and Mexican cuisine” a news release said.

The restaurant, taking over the former El Mariachi space, is Tako’s second location. The first one opened two years ago at 3030 T St., Sacramento.

Its signature tacos have a Korean flair, according to spokesman Andy Duong. “A variety of delectable meat selections are offered, ranging from marinated steaks to Korean-style short ribs. All tacos are topped with a crunchy cabbage slaw in lieu of lettuce, and then drizzled with a delicious homemade sauce that is made fresh daily.”

There are gluten-free and vegetarian options. Local beers, wine and a Korean cocktail called Soju are available as well.

“We’re excited to become the newest addition to the Davis community!” Duong wrote. “We are grateful to be a part of a town that is close-knit, and supports local businesses and events.”

The restaurant provides televisions, video games and Wi-Fi, Duong added. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays, and 10:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.

After five years, the cupcake legacy of Let Them Eat Cake! is changing. New owners took over on Saturday.

“While I will retain ownership of my recipes (we are working on a series of cookbooks), the new owners will be granted use of 50 recipes (we have more than 100). They will also be introducing a sugar-free and gluten-free line, and possibly a light lunch menu,” owner Paulette Coffman said in an email.

A farewell appeared on its Facebook page on Tuesday: “We are confident that the new owners will strive to continue to provide you with the level of excellence that LTEC! is known for. Using some of our recipes, and some new ones of their own, they will steer LTEC! into the future.”

Coffman ran the business with her daughters. “Once upon a time, there were 3 little girls … a baker of magical things, a recipe alchemist, and a whipped sugar wizard,” the Facebook farewell said. “We … have been honored to be part of your lives, celebrations, and community. But the time has come for our little family to venture out into the world.”

Davis Gold and Silver Exchange is exchanging owners. Owner Pete Richards, who opened the business in 1986, is retiring. The new owner, Nick Lemon, takes over in April.

The store, at 330 G St., Suite H, buys and sells coins, collectibles, jewelry and postcards. The name and services will stay the same, with a few upgrades to modernize the business and add an online presence, Lemon said.

Hours remain limited in March, but will expand in April. Call 530-758-1334.

Richards said he plans to use his new free time to do some writing.

Hand Made Creation, a clothing and gift store at 233 F St., could stay open through March, owner Raju Manandhar said Thursday. Manandhar and his wife, Auju, are looking for a new space to rent, and are weighing their options as to when to close. The shop, which opened in 2010, is filled with handmade gifts and textiles from Nepal.

It’s nice to be “liked.” I appreciate the followers of the Comings & Goings Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ComingsGoings, for their kind encouragement and tips. The page topped 1,000 “likes” on Wednesday.

I appreciate all of the positive feedback I get for doing this column, even when people call it an article (which Bob Dunning hates). For those of you who stop me when I’m at FIT House, Nugget, the Farmers Market or the Sudwerk Dock Store to say how much you love it, thanks! I began this odyssey in 2001, the same year as my trusty Honda Odyssey, and both are still going strong, thank goodness.
