The Sugar Land Town Square is starting to get a reputation for restaurants with strange combinations of cuisines.
First it was Japaneiro, which serves both sushi and Latin American dishes. Now, the owners of Japaneiro are at it again, opening up a new restaurant in the shopping complex called Guru Burgers and Crepes.
Yes, burgers and crepes all on the same menu. Food blogger Mai Pham recently checked it out.
"People thought we were crazy with Japaneiro, but that has really worked out," said Victor Litwinenko, a co-owner of both restaurants. "We know Sugar Land didn't have a high end burger place, and no one was doing crepes here, so we put them both together at Guru. It gives groups of people who come to eat together a bigger choice of things to order."
Judging by the lunchtime crowd, the new concept seems to be working as well. The menu consists of several burger combos, burgers made out of wild game, and both savory and sweet crepes.
Guru makes their hamburgers with Akaushi beef, a beef similar to Kobe beef but from Japanese cows raised here in Texas. The beef is low in cholesterol and high in taste.
One of the other highlights on the menu are the sliders. You can order just one if you want a lighter meal, or get a plate of three different sliders to sample the menu.
"We wanted to give our customers the opportunity to try out different menu items in one sitting," said General Manager Vincent Furlan.
During her visit, Pham tried the Ukulele Burger, which is made with a beef patty, a slice of grilled pineapple, ham, lettuce, tomato and a sunny side up fried egg.
"It's the perfect Hawaiian burger, made extra creamy with the egg on top," Pham said.
Guru Burgers and Crepes is located in the Sugar Land Town Square which is at the intersection of Route 6 and Highway 59.
