Chain Links: Reform Triangle Sandwiches
Kuwait has everything, and now they have Elevation Burger. Ok, I’ve never heard of the Virginia-based company that touts organic, grass-fed, free-range beef, but it looks like I will soon; an NYC location at 103 W. 14th is listed on their site for fall 2010. [Fast Casual]
Just because Budapest already has an established coffeehouse culture, doesn’t mean that Starbucks is staying away. Last week the world-conquering coffee chain opened their first location in Hungary. They will be serving something called reform triangle sandwiches, as well as cheese pogácsa and almond nougat cake from Gerbeaud, one of those old-fashioned coffeehouses they are trying to replace.

Skipping the US altogether, Sarku Japan will be partnering with Frisby, the Colombian fried chicken chain, to bring fast food teriyaki and sushi to that South American country. [QSR]
Dairy Queen will be coming to Saudi Arabia. The soft-servers already have a Middle Eastern presence in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. No word on any localized Blizzard flavors; the only quirk according to the DQ blog is that Middle Eastern Dairy Queens are open 24-hours because it’s too hot during the day to sit outside.
