Umami Burger is an American chain restaurant specializing in gourmet burgers. As the name suggests, their burgers utilize the umami flavour that is a savoury taste. All their burgers are made fresh in-house.
We came here after walking around Downtown Disney and were famished after the long walk around that area. We then took a short Uber to Umami Burger, which was very painless.
The interior is pretty cool and they have a lot of old looking license plates.
Umami Burger ($11.50) is their original burger which contains parmesan frico, shiitake mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions and their Umami house ketchup.
I got my burger made medium rare and I love the flavour and texture combination. That parmesan crisp really made it wonderful.
Manly Burger ($12) has beer-cheddar, bacon lardons, smoked-salt onion strings, Umami house ketchup and a mustard spread.
Mandu thought the burger was ok, but it was quite pricey since it doesn’t come with anything on the side.
Simple Salad ($4) has market greens with their chef’s seasonal dressing. We shared the salad amongst the table as we knew we had to get enough vegetables while on vacation. Its quite easy to skip out on vegetables when there’s fast food everywhere. The salad was good and had a light vinaigrette dressing.
Overall, Umami Burger was good, but a tad pricey. They do use quality ingredients and the flavours do go well together.
