Umami Burger, Santa Monica, 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 --- a Japanese notion. The kitchen turns out 10 different takes on beef burgers, plus variations with chicken, turkey, ahi tuna and falafel on buns that are stamped with "U", the logo for Umami Burger. The namesake creation is made with house ketchup, roasted tomato, shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions and a Parmesan crisp. Rounding out the menu are starters (Japanese-style wings, butter corn, etc.), salads and sides of tempura onion rings and fries. If you still have room for dessert, you might indulge in the UFO, a tempura-fried cookie sandwich topped with ice cream. This Santa Monica branch offers cocktails in addition to craft beers and wines. Other locations.
