Umami Burger, Los Angeles, CA

Umami Burger Restaurant Review

: This gourmet burger chain is named for the elusive "fifth taste" that is neither sweet, sour, salty nor bitter, but sultry and savory. The kitchen turns out 10 different takes on beef burgers, plus variations with chicken, turkey, ahi tuna and falafel. (The buns are stamped with "U" for Umami Burger.) The namesake creation is made with house ketchup, roasted tomato, shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions and a Parmesan crisp. Each location has its own exclusive burger, and the Hollywood branch features the Bleu Lucy Burger (bleu cheese stuffed beef patty, miso maple bacon, caramelized onions, arugula salad, roasted garlic aïoli). Rounding out the menu are starters (Japanese-style wings, butter corn, etc.), salads and sides of tempura onion rings and fries. Other locations.
