Woke up wanting some ramen and tacos, only one place I could think of to satisfy both .@GuruBBQ #FreakingDelicious pic.twitter.com/72Mzyi1aXF— Patrick Boberg (@PatBoBomb) July 30, 2016
Some days you wake up and know exactly what you want to eat. Today that was ramen for me, tacos for Marieta. So we decided to return to a local BBQ joint that we've only hit once before; Guru BBQ. With Kansas City-style bbq joints all over the 515, Guru is something unique. Much of the menu is Korean flavor influenced and unlike anything you'll find elsewhere.
For our first bite we got Guru Nachos (something Marieta tries everywhere with a latin influence). A fair share of tortilla chips, topped with arugula, a trace of blue cheese and white cheddar, plus red onions, grilled grapes, Creme fraiche, and balsamic glaze. Everything came in more than ample supply minus the cheese. Kind of odd considering that is like the only real required element for nachos. Still tasty, but the bottom couple layers of chips are just boring, dry tortilla chips.
Up next we got our ramen, dubbed the Old Sober. This thing is fantastic. A huge bowl slammed with noodles, beef broth, pork, a quail egg, and other greens. God I could eat this every day. Funny thing is we put what seemed like a decent dent into the old sober, but somehow when we packed up the remainder to take it home we had like four servings of delish ramen. GET THIS!
As for the tacos... they were equally amazing. We bought one of each variety: Brunch, Korean, and Chipotle Honey. Built with Prok, Eggs, Cucumber Relish, Jicama, and other bits of heaven Guru's tacos bring much more than flavor but also a fair amount of heat. Absolutely love them. Marieta couldn't take the heat, but I ate them until I was punishingly stuffed.
Guru is still pretty young but dang if it isn't Freaking Delicious. If you haven't swung by this Principal Park adjacent eatery, do yourself a favor and check it out.
