New food truck serves up bubble waffle cones stuffed with ice cream

Talk about rolling in dough: A new food truck called Bubble Cone is bringing a Hong Kong-style pastry—bubble waffles—to Sacramento’s mobile food scene. The hexagonal waffles comprises egg-shaped puffs that can be broken off to eat piece by piece. Bubble Cone’s owner Wahid Khalil, who lives in Elk Grove, describes the confection as being similar to a Belgian waffle, crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, with a sweet, cakey flavor. While the popular street food is traditionally eaten plain in Hong Kong, Khalil decided to follow the current trend of rolling the bulbous pastry into a cone shape and serving it with ice cream. Guests can choose from six different ice cream flavors, including vanilla, mint chocolate chip and Neapolitan, and...

New Glory Craft Brewery opens new taproom and eatery in Granite Bay

New Glory Craft Brewery is pairing pies—pizza pies, that is—with pints at its new restaurant in Granite Bay, which held its soft opening in mid-October and will host a grand opening later this year. Unlike the brewery’s existing taproom near Sacramento's Colonial Village neighborhood, where the only eats have come from visiting food trucks since it opened in 2013, New Glory Eatery & Taproom features a 5,500-square-foot space fitted with a full kitchen and two pizza ovens. Chef Yuri Dancer, who cut her culinary teeth at Esquire Grill and Station 16, is focusing on California-style pizzas—loaded with local produce from the Granite Bay farmers’ market—like a pie with Yukon Gold potatoes, chorizo sausage and goat cheese...

Taste: New food truck Nash & Proper dishes up tongue-tingling hot chicken, and other dining news for Oct. 18

The bird is the word at Nash & Proper, a new mobile hot chicken joint that has been heating up the region's food truck scene since it debuted at the Our Street Night Market along the R Street Corridor in June.  Co-owned by Cecil Rhodes (of food truck Cecil's Taste) and Jake Bombard, Nash & Proper serves hot chicken in classic Nashville fashion (the “Nash” in the name is a nod to Music City, where this particular style of fried chicken originated)—brined and double-fried, dripping with cayenne-red juices, nestled on a bed of white bread and topped with pickles. The “Sammich” version, which had its pilot run last year at Cecil’s Taste, features a fried chicken thigh piled with cabbage-jalapeño slaw, pickle brine...

Golden 1 Center unveils new menu for the 2018-19 season

Just in time for the Kings’ home opener on Oct. 17, Golden 1 Center (G1C) has switched up its starting food lineup, offering a smorgasbord of brand-new dishes for the 2018-19 NBA and concert season. Here's a sneak peek of the new additions to the menu of elevated arena fare with local flair (90 percent of the food is sourced from within 150 miles of the arena) helmed by G1C's executive chef Brien Kuznicki, such as the brat mac and bier cheese, with bratwurst from midtown sausage mecca LowBrau, and the new Burger Patch Cart, whose fast food items—like the Patch Burger with a Beyond Meat vegan patty—are 100 percent plant-based.  And on opening night, when the Kings will face off against the Utah Jazz, the arena will offer six special flavors of...

Drake's Brewing sets opening date at The Barn

The west bank of the Sacramento River is about to get a whole lot sudsier. Two years after announcing its forthcoming West Sacramento pizza restaurant and beer garden, Drake’s Brewing Co. is set to open its doors at The Barn on Wednesday, Oct. 24. A collaboration between The Barn and San Leandro-based Drake’s, the 2-acre space is anchored by the swooping cedar-shingled pavilion designed by Dutch architect Jerry van Eyck, and will feature a 30,000-square-foot lawn (more on that later) and a 400-seat open-air biergarten.
