Umami Burger coming to NYC

jhopp217 Oct 23, 2012 10:44 PM

Friend sent me a link. Should I be excited about this. Something about a Port & Stilton burger says heaven to me. Anyone been to any of the Cali locations? anyone else excited about this?

    A prediction - it will taste like a burger. A very well marketed burger.

          Its a gourmet burger, the umami special its good, the Ketchup is home made, the brioche bun is soft, i recomend, and have good montepulciano wine.

              Had a few of these in Cali when I was out there last year. Damm good burger with excelent flavored topings. Certainly can be a nice addition to the burger rotation in NYC.

                Tried the one in Hollywood last year. It was OK. We had the Cali Burger and the Umami Burger, eh. I didn't think it lived up to the hype. But I do think NYC's burger scene is very strong right now, anyway.

                  Umami burger? Well how about a MOS Burger outlet too? Tranquil interior, a wash basin right in front and burgers that aren't overwhelming. If I want to sit and enjoy a hamburger meal, I'd go elsewhere, but on the run, my vote goes to the acronym.

                        short answer, it is an Japanese fast food burger place. but back on topic, I am interested in trying Unami burger, wonder how it stacks up to Shake shack

                          Umami burger is about the toppings as much as the burger itself.
