When founder Adam Fleishman opened his first Umami Burger location in 2009, even he had no idea Angelenos would go crazy for his uniquely flavored hamburgers. Using umami, the fifth taste flavor (after sweet, salty, bitter and sour), to make his gourmet burgers practically irresistible, Fleishman's recipes have taken SoCal and beyond by storm. Now with more than twenty locations across the U.S., he obviously hit on a winning savory and bold taste sensation. All Umami burgers are made with beef that is freshly ground in house and served medium rare; the classic version has Parmesan frico, shiitake mushroom, roasted tomato, caramelized onions and house-made Umami ketchup. The most decadently delicious one on the menu is the Truffle Burger, smothered in truffled aioli, house truffle cheese and a truffle glaze. Every restaurant serves up wine and beer, too, for a complete dining experience.
