West Meats East: Umami Burger

{ The Classic Umami Burger with shiitake mushroom, caramelized onions, roasted tomato, parmesan crisp, umami ketchup }

Yesterday afternoon we happened to walk by Umami Burger and instead of there being a three hour wait, there was zero wait. Clearly this was a sign and even though we weren’t particularly hungry, we grabbed a table. We got a brief explanation of what umami means (a better definition here) and then somehow said no to the delicious looking slides and ice cream sandwiches. My Truffle Burger was devoured in 60 seconds flat and as my friend said, “taste buds were singing.” Rarely do things hold up to the hype, but I can safely say, this place does.
