Umami Burger (Los Angeles, CA)


After hearing so many good things about this place, I had to check it out. I ordered the original umami burger, along with these potato thingys and their special of the day, pumpkin fritters. There wasn't really anything special about the umami burger to me. It was a good burger, but it's overrated. I am still going to go back and try their different burgers. I should have listened to my instinct and gotten the other kinds, but I wanted to try the original first. The size of the burger is actually smaller than normal burgers, I could have probably taken down three if I wanted to. The potato popper things were alright, again, nothing special. I did really like the pumpkin fritters. They had a pumpkin glaze drizzled over them and was just a hint sweet. I will update this next time I go back.

  1. Umami is the best! You must go back and try the other burgers. Agree on the size issue, but that's what gourmet is all about. The taste, not the size.

    Couldn't agree with you more. Umami is the most over-hyped and over-priced burger joint in Los Angeles. They actually charge customers for ketchup! And if you're stupid enough to buy some, the ketchup is then delivered in tiny baby jars that prevent your from getting any ketchup on the fry, except for the very tip. Lame.

    Don't wast your time going back to Umami. Instead, try Juicy Burger on Hollywood—it's a block away from Umami.
