Umami Burgers

Umami Burgers

Kimchi: Our first time trying Umami was a mindblowing experience! In our opinion, it tastes way better than your typical burger joints. Juicy, tasty meat (med rare) paired with soft buns and all kinds of tasty toppings, depending on your burger. Even more delicious when paired with the sauces they give to you in spoons. Martini and I traded half of our burgers so we could get a taste of two different burgers. We had the original umami burger (has parmesan crisp on it) and the truffle royale burger (has pulled pork ribs on top of patty along with truffle sauce). I have to say the truffle royale was my favorite.

Martini: More often than not, me and Kimchi are always one of the last ones amongst our groups to try something. I don’t really want to try out something because of the hype surrounding it and be disappointed and waste money. Umami burgers was definitely hyped up and for good reason, because these burgers were incredible. I tried the classic Umami burger from this particular restaurant and it was extraordinary. It had Parmesan crisp, which is basically fried cheese added on as a topping and it blew my mind away. I was almost in tears because of how good this burger was.

Kimchi: The truffle fries were skinny & super crispy. It was our first time trying truffle fries as well, and that was an interesting yet delicious experience as well. The smushed potatoes were surprisingly good – very crispy. It inspired me to make some at home…we’ll see how that turns out.

Martini: I don’t get to eat really skinny fries too often but these were awesome. Even without the truffle, I would still like the fries because of the three different sauces it comes with. They’re so crispy and fun to eat – a great addition to the already amazing Umami burgers.
