Kuma Burgers

Any mention of Oxheart immediately conjures images of carefully plated vegetable dishes, but the cooks who have passed through its kitchens are a talented bunch with a diverse set of skills. Which means it should come as no surprise that Willet Feng, one of Oxheart’s former sous chefs, is making a splash with a hamburger and hot dog stand in the same Greenway Plaza food court that’s already home to The Rice Box and Greenway Coffee.

The basic Kuma burger starts with an 80/20 chuck patty that’s cooked on a griddle to ensure plenty of browning and crispy edges. From there, choose a cheese, any of several housemade condiments (sambal mayo or scallion aioli, for example) and vegetable toppings before it gets tucked into a slightly sweet Sheila Partin bun or a gluten-free bun of pressed rice grains. The beef and turkey hot dogs benefit from the same condiments, as well as a kimchi relish.

The menu rounds out with Feng’s surprisingly authentic bowl of Texas chili, a choice of french fries or lotus root chips, and a selection of milkshakes.
