But the Chinatown location carries on

Fukuburger, the Asian fusion restaurant, shut down its location on the Strip in the Hawaiian Marketplace. Owner Colin Fukunaga confirms he closed the location since “even the locals were just going to the Chinatown location.”

The food truck had moved out of its food truck stall F.A.M.E. at The Linq to take over the former Zingers space on the ground floor at the Hawaiian Marketplace under the second-floor Chili’s at the market. Diners could order at the walk-up counter and sit inside or on the patio at the restaurant.

Fukuburger opened its Chinatown location last November in the former White Rabbit space with a menu that includes the Fuku burger with American cheese, lettuce, pickled red onions, wasabi mayo and Fuku sauce; the Tamago with its fried egg and crispy onion strings; and the chicken katsu finished with "crack" sauce and katsu sauce. Sake and beer wash it down.

The food truck that got it all started remains, and Fukunaga teases that another location may be on the horizon.
