I love burgers and heard a lot of good things about Umami Burger so it was a must try when I was in San Francisco.
Umami Burger offers freshly ground, premium beef patties that are infused with secret ingredients that have umami (a flavor that falls outside salty, sweet, bitter, and sour) properties. Umami induces salivation and a sensation of furriness on the tongue, stimulating the throat, the roof, and the back of the mouth.
Umami Burger has full bar service and wait staff, concepts not common for most burger joints.
|Umami's Bar Menu|
I had a hard time narrowing down my choice as I wanted to try a lot of things on the menu!!! In the end, my meal consisted of The Royale Burger with a side of truffle fries and root beer.
|Abita Root Beer|
Bottled root beer is the best!
|Truffle Em' Thin Fries|
Fries are topped with truffle cheese and truffle salt. Sad that they scrimped on truffle.
Beef patty topped with braised short rib, roasted garlic aioli, and truffle cheese.
Just look at that beautiful chunk of meat! The patties at Umami Burger are always cooked medium rare just the way I like it! Flavors were spot on and the melt-in-your-mouth ribs tied the Royale Burger beautifully.
Umami Burger has multiple branches in California, Florida, and New York. For more information, click here.
