EM visiting from France. we went to Umami – Los Feliz branch.
I read all of the mixed reviews of the place, with most complaints being about the size of the burger and the price point. And after experiencing the place myself, I fall into the cheer camp. Yay.
Honest to gawd, this place makes amazing burgers. We ordered 4 (2 signature Umamis, a Port & Stilton, and a Truffle) between us, and left the plates clean. I really appreciated each of the burgers. They were all unique tasting. I could go into more detail about the combinations, the bun:patty ratio, etc but then i’d start boring myself…. so, here are some pictures.

Dessert. The waiter called this the UFO. It was something in tempura and ice cream on the side. Satisfied the sweet tooth.
yum, yum, yum. i’ll definitely be back to try the other burgers.
Tip: lots of street parking.
