Give Me Meat!
From food truck to five fabulous locations Umami Burger has become a stomach teasing activity. They serve you a burger and an hour later you want more. This phenomenon could be because the burger is rich with flavor or because they are the perfect size but regardless be prepared to have a craving soon afterwards. Mine happened in my sleep. This place is not for vegetarians or vegans so don't even consider it. The place smells like fabulous well prepared animal. And not only does the place attract fun crazy hipsters but nice normal people too. Yummy!
Umami is not owned by an asian family. The word reflects the goal of the chef. The term Umami means "a pleasant savoury taste imparted by glutamate, a type of amino acid, and ribonucleotides, including inosinate and guanylate, which occur naturally in many foods including meat, fish, vegetables, and dairy products." In plain English it is the fifth primary taste that occurs after sweet, sour, salt, and bitter; as explained to customers Zoey and Sheila by the GM Randall and staff member Tracey.
Then after the burger comes dessert! Ice cream sandwiches made by the chiefs at MILK. OMG!!!
Oh, PS: They're opening one up in San Fran.
