Bambu Desserts & Drinks soon will sweeten up E Street, replacing Zindagi Indian Bistro at 213 E St., Suite C. Bambu, a franchised chain, has more than 35 locations, mostly in the Bay Area and Texas, and a few others, including ones in Southern California, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Georgia and Virginia. Locally, there are outlets in Sacramento, Rocklin and Stockton.

It serves “exotic, Asian-inspired desserts and drinks, always made with the freshest ingredients,” its website says. The menu includes hot and cold drinks, milk teas, blended coffees, smoothies, and some interesting dessert concoctions with various jellies, beans, seeds and grasses, tapioca, lychee, taro, coconut and other fruits. For more information, visit http://www.drinkbambu.com.

Downtown has quite a selection of desserts, with several stores offering ice cream and ice cream sandwiches, cupcakes, gelato and frozen yogurt, not to mention all of the blended coffee drinks. And there is more to come …

Sweet & Shavery, a new Italian shave ice dessert store at 210 E St., should open soon as well. It will serve Italian ice, frozen custard and crepes.

Nearby at 211 F St., The Root of Happiness Kava Bar has its “Coming Soon” sign painted on its window in the E Street Plaza. Kava, a traditional Polynesian, nonalcoholic beverage, is touted for its calming effects. The latest note from the owners projected a March opening.

There’s a sign up for Awards & More of Davis, between Acorn Veterinary Clinic and Little Caesars Pizza, at 1340 E. Covell Blvd., Suite 102. The new store is being opened by one of the employees at Davis Awards & Watchworks. After 20 years in business, that store, at 716 Second St., will have its last day on Friday, Jan. 31.

————

Krush Burger should be open by Monday, Feb. 3. Is your mouth watering? It’s in The Marketplace, on West Covell Boulevard at Sycamore Lane, filling the spot last occupied by Rostini Italian Kitchen.

“We are getting really close,” owner and “chief burger flipper” Davin Vculek said Friday morning in an email. He’s “hoping to open next week midweek, or later, but it will depend on the final touches coming together. Surely we will be open by Monday, Feb. 3.”

He wasn’t able to give an exact date because they were waiting on materials delayed in transit by East Coast storms. We are very excited and cant wait to show everyone what we have been working on,” Vculek said.

The Davis Tako Korean BBQ is still scheduled to open Saturday, Feb. 1. The Korean/Mexican fusion restaurant replaces El Mariachi, which closed last month at the corner of Fourth and G streets in downtown Davis.

————

Huku Japanese Bistro also has a “Coming Soon” sign up in the El Macero Shopping Center at 4615 Cowell Blvd. It’s replacing the long-vacant space where South Davis Veterinary Center was. The vet moved to a larger space in the center two years ago.

————

Davis Import Auto Service has moved to a new suite in the same building at 638 Cantrill Drive, owners report.
